Charles A. Berry, M.D. History of Space Medicine Collections

Decorative | Berry Space Medicine - Header

There is only one other event that may create as many advances in science and technology as the space program and that is war. I would rather go to space.
Charles A. Berry, M.D.

The Charles A. Berry, M.D. History of Space Medicine Collections serve as a resource for the UTMB/NASA Johnson Space Center Aerospace Medicine Residency Program and for physicians, students and historians of the Space Program.

Dr. Berry played an instrumental role in the selection of the original seven astronauts. As NASA Flight Surgeon, he was responsible for sending 42 individuals into space over the course of 30 missions, including Apollo 11.

In 1967, Dr. Berry was appointed as the first Chairman of the Department of Aerospace Medicine as well as Professor of Aerospace Medicine at UTMB.

The Charles A. Berry, M.D., History of Space Medicine Collections contain a variety of primary source materials that date to the early 1950s, donated by astronauts, medical doctors and others associated with the space program.
