MetadataShow full item record
This digitized film from the Hugo Leipzieger-Pearce papers explores the actions of the Redevelopment Assistance Center (RAC) following destruction caused by Hurricane Celia on August 3, 1970 in the Corpus Christi area. RAC was created with the assistance of faculty and students at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture to provide services designed to expedite rebuilding the area destroyed by Celia. Services included drafting architectural plans and processing damage estimates. The film captures scenes of the storm’s damage, School of Architecture Dean, Alan Y. Taniguchi, and RAC staff member Fred Worley conducting a site visit to a Corpus Christi home destroyed by the hurricane.
