Government Information takes you behind the scenes of Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

The 2019 Oscar nominations get one thinking of all the great films that came out in 2018. What were some of your favorites? Academy Award-winning director Morgan Neville’s documentary about Mister Rogers, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, certainly garnered a great deal of acclaim! It also gives us an opportunity to make use of historic U.S. government publications.

One important scene in the film shows Fred Rogers speaking before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications; the date is May 1, 1969 and the committee is in hearings on a bill that would authorize the appropriation of $20 million to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for the 1970 fiscal year. Mister Rogers gives a powerful testimony that can be read in full in the published hearing Extension of Authorizations Under the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967, which the University Libraries have access to through our online database subscriptions.

An excerpt from Fred Rogers’ statement in Extension of Authorizations Under the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967

The film, which played locally in 2018 at both Ragtag Cinema and True/False Film Fest, is available at the Columbia Public Library if you are interested in watching it.

And if you want to find out if more of your favorite personalities have made appearances before Congress, visit the Government Information department at Ellis Library.

Remembering William

Back in December, Remembering William was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Written by Brit Hultgren, a 4th year medical student at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, this piece provides a glimpse into the life of William. William was a resident of the homeless shelter that Britt lived and worked out.

This perspective showcases a man wary of others and how Brit was able to gain his trust. Britt relays his “deep and complex relationship” with William, offering insight into how the two met and how knowing William inspired him to become a doctor.

For Britt, William taught him that him the importance of patient care by remembering that our patients are people too.

“During catheter changes and bathing, [William] reminded me that age and socioeconomic status don’t dissolve agency and autonomy — in these intimate, sacred spaces, his body and his decisions were still unquestionably his own.” (Hultgren 2018)

We wanted to congratulate Britt on his wonderful piece on William and for being recognized by the New England Journal of Medicine.
