About

The oral history collection consists of recorded interviews of historical information found only in the memories of individuals who have either witnessed or participated in the development of the UNT Health Science Center and the osteopathic profession in Texas. Currently containing over 70 interviews, the collection includes the memoirs of the University’s founders, administrators, faculty, students and leaders in osteopathic medicine in Texas. Through the generosity of Dan Saylak, D.O., the TOMA Archives Committee digitized the entire collection of oral histories ensuring their preservation and allowing them to be shared electronically.

Oral history interviews can accessed in the Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library institutional repository, the UNTHSC Scholar.
