William Spencer born on February 16, 1922 in Oklahoma City. He went to John Hopkins University for medical school and was first in his graduating class. Beginning in 1951 Dr. Spencer would lead staff at Baylor College of Medicine to address the polio epidemic. Consequently, ground-breaking research was conducted paving the way for the facility to become one of the most prominent rehabilitation facilities in the country. He would become founder of The Institute of Rehabilitation and Research, or TIRR, and the facility opened its doors on May 30, 1959. Today the hospital is officially part of the Memorial Hermann hospital system. Throughout his life Dr. Spencer would treat patients and conduct research regarding traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries, many of his patients being children or youth. Dr. Spencer in his twenty-eight years serving as TIRR’s president became known as the “Father of Modern Rehabilitation” as hospitals around the globe modeled their rehabilitation programs after TIRR (Wendler, 2009, p.16). The TIRR was a facility ahead of its time under Dr.Spencer’s leadership. After the development of personal computers, Dr.Spencer petitioned IBM to link the computers (now known as networking) at TIRR and Baylor College of Medicine.
In his nonmedical life, Dr. Spencer would tinker with a number of inventions or other projects. These engineering projects would lead him to develop the physiography, which ended up being an early version of its predecessor the EKG. Dr. Spencer was married twice, his first wife being Helen Spencer and his second wife being Jean Spencer, who had passed away before him in 2005.

This video by the Junior League of Houston presents the findings of the League’s Mental Health Study Group convened in January 1957 to look at mental health services in Houston, Texas. The group points out problems including understaffing, lack of training opportunities, and limited facilities. At the time only Baylor University College of Medicine and the University of Houston had programs to train mental health professionals. In addition there were long wait times for mental health patients to be seen at hospitals. The Study Group suggests that the university programs need to be expanded to attract more mental health students and facilities need more funding. The video covers mental health services for both adults and children in Houston. The video also mentions the shifting idea that mental illness is a disease and talks about the emerging research that is being done.
"Help Wanted" was produced in the mid 1950's by The Junior League of Houston. League members Julia Schnapp, Sadie Cowin Blackbusn and Evelyn Houston were instrumental in the creation of them film. This documentary, along with its sister documentary, "In Their Shoes" examine the need for creating and maintaining mental health services in Houston, Texas.
