University of Oregon Medical School Hospital, 1946-1951

31 Jan

Today I found an untitled silent film in gorgeous Kodachrome showing the construction of the University of Oregon Medical School Hospital, 1946-1951 (now Oregon Health & Sciences University). It appears to have been made (or sponsored) by the architecture firm that designed the building, Lawrence, Tucker, and Wallmann, of Portland, Oregon.

The film showcases the workers. This section was in black and white.

Still raw, but nearly complete.
