About this collection

The Making Cancer History® Voices Oral History Collection documents the history of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Personal interviews with the men and women of M.D. Anderson who dedicated their work to eliminating cancer provide unique insights into a host of important social, medical, political, and scientific developments related to cancer. The goal of the project is to tell the story of the many facets of the birth of oncology as a medical discipline; the emergency and evolution of surgery, diagnostic radiology, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy; the rise of nursing oncology; the impact of genetics and molecular biology on medical research; and cancer's place in the evolution of public health policy. The relative youth of MD Anderson, which belies its seminal role in the history, means that it's present and recently retired faculty and staff are only one generation removed from the pioneers. Today their voices have been captured. Their side by side experiences with the pioneers recalled, recorded, and made available to everyone.
