Texas A&M University: A Pictorial History, 1876-1996
Texas A&M University Press, 1996 - 199 страници
This expanded and updated edition of A Pictorial History of Texas A&M University offers intriguing facets from A&M's early history to current issues facing the campus, complemented with more than three hundred illustrations of people, places, and events that molded this university.
Captured in full-color pictures are the modern university, its buildings, its far-reaching programs, and its students. Here also are the Aggie greats on the battlefields of five wars; on the playing fields of sports; in industry, agriculture, science, and civic leadership. Relive visits by Presidents William H. Taft, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and George H.W. Bush; preparations for military actions of World Wars I and II; the 1939 national championship football team; and the campus filming of the 1943 World War II movie We've Never Been Licked.
From the first day of classes, the newly opened A&M College of Texas encountered successes and setbacks that provided learning and growing experiences, established traditions that would shape the university and its students, and began the transformation of the campus from an educational frontier community to one of the nation's largest and most prestigious institutions.
Gov. Richard Coke's admonition of October 4, 1876, has governed the school's growth: "Grave responsibilities rest upon you. The excellence of the college will be determined by your progress." As new frontiers beckoned, A&M accepted the challenges - excelling in science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, education, space, and the sea. A&M's military program received national recognition for providing military leaders during the crises of the Spanish-American War, the two world wars, and subsequent conflicts. With growth have come a more diverse student body, administrative reorganizations, and expanded educational programs.
The spirit of Aggieland, which began over a hundred years ago but beats just as strongly today, comes alive within these pages. The history of Texas A&M University will entertain and inform current and former students alike, as well as others who treasure the living past.
