"Horse-Drawn to Horsepower" is an exhibit that offers a look at America's transition from the horse and buggy to the horseless carriage. The exhibit focuses on rural America with artifacts that include horse-drawn vehicles that were common on ranches, along with their motor vehicle replacements.
One of the featured artifacts is a working 1923 Ford Model T “chuck truck,” or motorized chuck wagon. Other artifacts include a wide array of tools and materials related to the Ford Model T, which became a common sight on many ranches in the early 20th century. Rare photographs showing early automobiles at work in rural America will also be on display. The exhibit opens on August 17 and closes in summer 2014.
The National Ranching Heritage Center is a museum and historical park comprised of 48 authentic dwellings and outbuildings from some of history’s most important ranches. Structures on the 16-acre site have been authentically restored and furnished and date from the late 1780s to the 1950s.

Dr. Sherman Vinograd-Medical Science Director at NASA
May 2014-September 2015
During the eighteen years that Dr. Vinograd served as NASA’s Director of Medical Science he led medical engineering and vehicle development research relating to manned space flight. Among his many accomplishments was the establishment of the in-flight Medial Experiments Program, which evaluated human responses to extended space flight in preparation for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab manned space flight programs. His greatest achievement was conceptualizing, establishing, and chairing the Space Medicine Advisory Group (SPAMAG), which was charged with defining the earth-based and space-based research and life-support requirements for a manned orbiting research laboratory. This group proposed an orbiting laboratory designed according to the needs of future human flight crews which resulted in the creation of Skylab. Now on display at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library through September 2015, is an exhibit containing books, photographs, artifacts, and medical and scientific reports. More information on this topic can be found in the Sherman P. Vinograd Papers.
