Victor McKusick is known as one of the founders of modern medical genetics. This is a collection of his home movies that were transferred to VHS. The earliest films depict McKusick's family farm in the 1940s-1950s, the remainder are of his immediate family in Baltimore, mostly in the 1960s. The original films, except for 1 reel, were discarded or lost by the family. The only remaining film reel is from summer, 1968.
