Felix Haas played key roles in the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth), the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (UTGSBS) in Houston. He was Head of the Department of Biology at the M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute from 1956-1975. He later supervised and directed the Office of Research and served as Advisor to the Director and President on all matters concerning research at M.D. Anderson Hospital.

His collection at the McGovern Historical Center documents both his research interests and his administrative roles at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.

It includes biographical information, professional records, correspondence, certificates, reprints, typescripts, publications, theses and dissertations, experiment notebooks, lectures, speeches, grant materials, committee reports and meeting minutes, course outlines, and audio recordings.

Unique to the collection are the audiotapes (reel-to-reel and compact cassette) that detail the beginnings of the UTGSBS. The recordings include meetings of Committee on Graduate Studies (1963-1965)–which he chaired–and lectures from courses given by UTGSBS faculty (1971-1978).
