DeBakey Papers Now NLM Digital Archive

Dr. Michael DeBakey, known for the coronary bypass, is now featured in the archives of the National Library of Medicine. Selections from the Michael E. DeBakey Papers collection, including publications, speeches, drawings, correspondence, portraits, oral history interviews and video recordings, can be freely viewed online. His advocacy is a big reason the National Library of Medicine exists today. NLM has also launched a fellowship program in his honor.

DeBakey “translated his expertise in the OR into political and policy capital on local, national and international levels to affect medical research funding, medical education and broader disease awareness” said Dr. Shelley McKellar, Hannah Chair in the History of Medicine at Western University in London, Canada, speaking at the first annual NLM Michael DeBakey Lecture in the History of Medicine on March 2, 2017.
