This unedited film opens with a number of the principals involved in the planning of the Clinical Center standing around a model located on a high table, probably in Building 1 of the NIH. The persons include Norman H. Topping, Associate Director of NIH, Leonard A. Scheele, then Surgeon General of the United States Public Health Service, Rolla E. Dyer, then Director of NIH, Robert Felix, Director of the National Institute for Mental Health, Jack Masur, in 1951 director of the Hospital Division of the PHS (but the first director of planning of the medical center), and several others. The principals are then seen walking about the construction site, where the floors have risen to at least the fifth level of the concrete frame of the building. Brick partially surrounds the radiation wing at the northeast corner of the building. Among the persons joining the above are Victor Haas, first director of the National Microbiology Institute, and Roderick Heller, who succeeded Scheele as director of the National Cancer Institute.
