Historical A/V from the Texas Medical Center (Texas Medical History Documents)
Do you have old recordings that show what you were like when you were younger? Well, so does the Texas Medical Center!
In the 1970s, a series of video interviews captured the stories of TMC leaders and important visitors. Meanwhile, audio and video had emerged as valuable tools in medical education and community outreach.
As these recording technologies age, archivists at the TMC Library are working to preserve this audiovisual history for the future. The McGovern Historical Center recently digitized and shared online more than 50 archival films, videos and sound recordings.
