Texas Heart Institute Film Collection

  • IC 043
  • Collection
  • 1953-1993

The Texas Heart Institute Film Collection contains 277 reels of 16mm film and 86 videotapes. It consists of final distributed films as well as work prints, camera original footage, and other production elements. Video tapes of film transfers can also be found in the collection The majority of films were produced within the Texas Medical Center. This collection contains films related to heart surgery at the Texas Medical Center, primarily during the 1960s and 1970s. Films are typically instructional with brief surgical and case histories at the beginning. The films follow the surgery step-by-step with voice over narration and diagrams inserted to illustrate the process and techniques used. There is a brief follow-up at the end, sometimes including statistical information on patient outcomes for similar surgeries. Sixty-eight films have been digitized and are available for research access.

The collection documents surgeries performed by Dr. Denton Arthur Cooley and his associates in the Texas Medical Center. The collection ranges from the years 1956 to 1993 and consists of 38 cubic feet (277 film reels). It consists of 16mm composite film prints (prints with both image and soundtrack printed onto the film), 16mm optical soundtrack negatives, and 16mm and 8mm magnetic soundtracks, or magnetic tracks. All of the film prints and optical soundtracks are acetate or polyester stock. The composite prints are available in the English, French, German, and Spanish languages. Dr. Denton A. Cooley (1920-2016 ) was a pioneer in the field of heart surgery. Cooley founded the Texas Heart Institute in 1962. Cooley performed the first successful human heart transplant in 1968 and implanted the first artificial heart in man in 1969. His mentor and later colleague was Dr. Michael DeBakey (1908-2008), the cardiac surgeon who revolutionized the surgical treatment of aneurysms and performed the first successful coronary bypass in 1964. The collection occupies 38 cubic feet contains 277 film cans and boxes, some of which contain multiple reels.

TMC Library Historical Photograph Collection

  • IC 098
  • Collection
  • 1543-2004

The TMC Library Historical Photograph Collection contains photographs, negatives, slides, published prints, printed materials, postcards, framed images, audiovisual materials, and a plaque. The collection consists of roughly 5300 items, which includes individual 35mm slides, 35mm negatives, 120 format negatives, photographic prints, and other printed materials. This is an artificial collection of several types of images collected by or donated to the McGovern Historical Center (MHC) through the years. The bulk of the materials date from 1940 to 1990. The entire collection depicts images from 1543 to 2004. The earliest date is related to copy photographs of pages from the 1543 edition of the Fabrica by Andreas Vesalius. Other early dates are framed prints of well-known medical pioneers from the 17th, 18th, and 19th Centuries. Some dates describe the date of the copy photograph others describe the date of the original image. The collection illustrates the history of medicine around the world and more acutely the Texas Medical Center and Texas Medical Center Library. Majority of the materials have been removed from this collection and incorporated into the original collections or new collections based on the donor records.

The collection is arranged into three series: Cataloged Photographs, Subject Photographs, and Oversize and Audiovisual Materials. Subject Photographs are arranged in files according to subject and then in alphabetical order. Subject terms used are as follows (in order): Attractions Photos, Building Photos, Event Photos, Individual Photos, Institutions and Organizations, Medical Equipment and Apparatus, and Surgical, Anatomical, and Medical Photos.

The collection was created to consolidate various photographs and images collected by the archive staff. Many were cataloged and assigned identification numbers (P-### for prints or N-### for negatives). These photographs were originally donated. The donor information in the card catalog was used to either create new photograph collections or incorporate into existing collections. This collection is comprised of the remaining items. Information about donors, if known, is available in the inventory. Uncataloged photographs were organized into general subjects and kept in alphabetical order. Oversize materials maintain the same identification number system and subjects. To increase discoverability of all archival materials, the collection was expanded to include materials with no known provenance. This includes framed items stored in the Garment Artifacts and Framed (GAF) section as well as audiovisual materials.
