100,000 hearts : a surgeon's memoir by Denton A Cooley( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pioneering surgeon Dr. Denton Cooley performed his first human heart transplant in 1968 and astounded the world in 1969 when he was the first surgeon to successfully implant a totally artificial heart in a human being. Over the course of his career, Cooley and his associates have performed thousands of open heart operations and have been forerunners in implementing new surgical procedures. Of all his achievements, however, Cooley is most proud of the Texas Heart Institute, which he founded in 1962 with a mission to use education, research, and improved patient care to decrease the devastating effects of cardiovascular disease. In his new memoir, 100,000 Hearts, Cooley tells about his childhood in Houston and his experiences as a basketball scholarship recipient at the University of Texas. After medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and Johns Hopkins, Cooley served in the Army Medical Corps. While at Johns Hopkins, Cooley assisted in a groundbreaking operation to correct an infant's congenital heart defect, which inspired him to specialize in heart surgery. Cooley's detailed descriptions of what it was like to be in the operating room at crucial points in medical history offer a fascinating perspective on how far medical science has progressed in just a few decades. Dr. Denton Cooley and the Texas Heart Institute are responsible for much of that progress

A war remembered : the Vietnam War Summit at the LBJ Presidential Library by Mark K Updegrove( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When former president Lyndon B. Johnson opened the LBJ Presidential Library in May 1971, he proclaimed, "It's all here, the story of our time--with the bark off." Accordingly, he wanted his library to reflect not only the triumphs of his administration, but the failures, too--and he wanted us to learn from them to build a better future for our country. In keeping with that vision, the LBJ Library took an unvarnished look at the Vietnam War and the result was the Vietnam War Summit, an intensive three-day conference in April 2016 that brought together policy makers, scholars, reporters, photographers, musicians, and those who were on the front lines of the war and the antiwar movement. In conjunction with the conference, the library displayed a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Twice each day during the summit, ceremonies recognized Vietnam War veterans. This book features photographs and documentation from the Summit, but also includes a number of historic photographs from both the LBJ Library and the Briscoe Center for American History, offering a diverse perspective on the conflict that defined a generation
JFK's final hours in Texas : an eyewitness remembers the tragedy and its aftermath by Julian Read( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Read, a Texas political insider who delivered the first eyewitness account of President John F. Kennedy's assassination to the media, has authored a behind-the-­scenes history of the tragedy and its fifty-year legacy. In JFK's Final Hours in Texas, Read documents not only the immediate agony endured by the people in the epicenter of the tragedy but also the continuing experience of a wounded community recovering from its aftermath. Beyond capturing the drama following the assassination, Read illuminates the previously overlooked consequences of the aborted portion of the trip. He also traces the long aftermath of the assassination, including the intense bitterness towards Dallas and Texas. And in what he calls "the long journey from anguish to reconciliation," Read details the struggle to create the Sixth Floor Museum in downtown Dallas, located in the space from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired the assassination shots. Read's very personal account surrounding the assassination and previously obscured facts of the president's Texas trip constitute a worthy addition to the record of a turbulent time
