In the 1970s, a series of video interviews captured the stories of Texas Medical Center leaders and important visitors. Meanwhile, audio and video had emerged as valuable tools in medical education and community outreach.

The Texas Medical Center (TMC) Historical Resources Project records contain video oral histories of notable personalities associated with or visiting the TMC. Beginning in 1973, the initial group of interviews focuses on individuals involved in the founding or early days of the TMC. Later “video profiles” also include significant visitors to the TMC. Several of these feature national and international figures in cancer research on their visits to Houston. In total the collection features forty-seven unique recordings of interviews with thirty-eight different individuals. All 47 unique recordings have been digitized..
