Project Will Help Preserve Aging Austin State Hospital Records
In the 140-plus years that the Austin State Hospital has been serving patients, its work has been accompanied by documents of every sort. From medical records for admission, treatment and medication to budget, personnel and construction documents — these records are a window into the history of the hospital and mental health care in Texas. In late 2021, the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health awarded $260,000 to The University of Texas at Austin to work with the hospital on the Austin State Hospital Archives Project which will include identifying, categorizing and preserving the records and making them accessible for researchers and the public.
