Nana's father graduated from the University of Texas - Galveston with a Medical degree in 1900.
His diploma was displayed in his office until the 1920s when a fire destroyed his office and his diploma along with it.
Nana remembers the office burning, and her father losing his diploma rather vividly, and since she's going to be 100 years old in August, we figure it might be nice to present her with a copy of her fathers medical degree.
My question is, how would we go about getting a copy of his diploma?
Mom has tried going through UT Galveston, but they're not being real helpful about it -- considering that Nana's dad died in 1931, I don't think there's much chance of us getting him to sign a release.
Anyone got any ideas on how to shake things loose down in Galveston?
