Mayo and the Mississippi: A Passion for the River

Everyone needs a place to relax ... to unwind with family and friends ... to think about what is important in life. For Dr. William J. Mayo, that place was the Mississippi River. This film will introduce you to "life on the Mississippi" as Mayo Clinic's founders experienced it.

Welcome aboard!

"It would be fine if you took a little trip with Mrs. Mayo and me. Come on, let's do it!"
— Dr. William J. Mayo in a letter to a friend, 1931

You'll enjoy the sights and sounds of a trip on the great river through vintage home movies, artifacts and photos - many of them presented in public for the first time.
