Texas Tech Museum’s executive director Gary Morgan says the new “Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust” exhibit gives a side of the war usually presented by generals, presidents and those in power.

“This exhibit looks much more at the impacts on those servicemen, those Texans when they came into those concentration camps and saw what can only be described as hell on earth,” he says.

Texas Tech has been doing distance learning since the mid 1960s. Not like it’s done now of course. These days it happens online and at various sites outside of Lubbock. And there are courses that people over 50 can take so that learning continues.

Justin Louder, the associate vice provost of eLearning, says Texas Tech began distance learning programs more than 50 years ago. And the method was unusual.

Mental illness bleeds far beyond the general population in the US. Those serving time in Texas Criminal Justice Department prisons also suffer with various diagnoses. At Lubbock’s Montford Unit, some of those with mental illness have art as part of their therapy.

The detail and symmetry in one inmate’s drawings is stunning. He draws wildlife only - animals, birds, reptiles. Health law prohibits naming him. He’s identified on small white cards in front of his creations by only his age, 36, and his diagnosis - major depressive disorder.

That’s the first step whenever there’s a potential biohazard spill of an unknown substance or fluid. Fortunately, this recent incident was a full-blown practice exercise at The Institute of Environmental and Human Health.

When the 18-hour documentary film series on the Vietnam War begins later this month, Texas Tech University’s Vietnam Center and Archives will have contributed indispensably to the production. “From the standpoint of being an archive that provided materials that have been used as this, almost a revolutionary documentary about the Vietnam War, I’d say it was probably pretty essential,” Steve Maxner, the Center’s Director, said.
