Collection Scope and Content Note


The collection consists of twenty-three titles created between 1958 and 1969, arranged roughly in chronological order. The films were produced by the Medical Arts and Photography Branch (MAPB) of the National Institutes of Health. Investigators working at the various institutes and centers could request that procedures be filmed, and MAPB recorded the work of more than fifty NIH investigators between the 1950s and the 1970s. In the Morrow collection, most of the films feature Dr. Morrow performing cardiac procedures, chiefly implanting different types of artificial aortic valves. A few of the films include other surgeons or nurses working with Morrow, and several focus on apparatuses used during the surgeries. The surgical suite facilities in the Clinical Center are also shown.
