Abstract

The aim of the oral history project is to capture on videotape the recollections of obstetric and gynecologic physicians and nurses, persons of importance to the specialty, early leaders of ACOG, and ACOG presidents. The interviews typically start with a discussion of the subject's early life and medical education, followed by a discussion of their later career and topics of importance to them in the specialty. This series began at the 1983 ACOG Annual Clinical Meeting in Atlanta, When Warren H. Pearse, MD, the former Executive Director of ACOG, interviewed Woodard D. Beacham, MD, ACOG's first president.


Quantity

The collection consists of forty-eight thirty-minute interviews on videotape (1983-2004) and DVD (2005- ). Every year two new interviews are recorded at the Annual Clinical Meeting.
