Thanks. He's able to open documents, it's just that they render in
unreadable form.

Emoto, thanks.

If you try to open very old Word documents (Word 95 and older) in
recent Word versions, you'll get an error message due to security
restrictions. You need to disable the restrictions.
See [1]https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/922849/opening-a-file-i
s-blocked-by-your-registry-policy-setting-or-file-bloc.

But it works. A few months ago, I was able to use Word 2016 to open a
Word 95 document I wrote around 2000 in high school. :-)
Is this what you meant?

A friend has a bunch of old documents in Word, from the 90s. Can he
recover anything?
