UTMB Centennial Oral History Collection

 

This site is a complement to the Centennial Oral History book authored by Chester R. Burns, M.D., Ph.D., Saving Lives, Training Caregivers, Making Discoveries (Austin: Texas State Historical Association, 2003, ISBN 0-87611-187-8). The Centennial Oral History Collection is comprised of interviews with 85 individuals recorded between 1985 and 1994. A topical outline of most interviews was typed and written materials were solicited from some of the interviewees. This printed information is deposited in the Centennial History Archives. Both the Archives and the Oral History Collection are housed in the Blocker Collections on the 4th floor of the Library. Copies of the topical outlines and other related materials are available for a fee. For further information, please contact:
