Many are silent and would have been voiced over by the anchorperson during a live broadcast. The titles for each segment are the originals created by KHOU-TV. The clips on this reel all date from May and June 1962. This series includes news segments about trade restrictions against Cuba, a budget crisis, and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
The digital preservation of this collection was made possible by a grant to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Houston Public Library from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
