Book Description: 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.

Book Description: When the South Texas State Teaches College first opened its doors 75 years ago, there was only one academic building in the middle of a cotton field, no paved roads, dormitories, or even a cafeteria. Today, the Javelinas boast a proud tradition, distinguished alumni, and an unmatched passion for education. As it looks toward the certain trials of the future, Texas A&M-Kingsville shines with promise, confident in the knowledge that no obstacle is too great that the Javelina cannot triumph over. Robert B. Cousins, who had served as the Texas State Superintendent of education in South Texas, was given the mission of training teachers in South Texas to raise the standards of education and prepare the future leaders of tomorrow. Through 75 years, Texas A&M-Kingsville has overcome five name changes, lackluster state financing, and fiscal prejudices, to create a premier university in a rural, bilingual, and multicultural region.

Book Description: This illustrated book traces the history of Reveille, from the first mutt of uncertain origins to Reveille VII, an American collie of purebred lineage and scientific breeding. It tells the collective story of the lives of Reveille at Texas A&M: Reveille's life in the dorm and her privileges in classrooms; the dognapping that made national news in the 1990s; and her effect on the lives of those who have shared the campus with her, cared for her, and loved her. A visible part of university life throughout the year, for many students Reveille is the pet they left at home. Rusty and Vannessa Burson have gathered anecdotes, statistics, and pictures that tell the little-known story of a well-known dog: her origins, tales and traditions, antics and adventures, and evolving role. It is the story of special dogs, caring people, and a legacy shaped through the decades. The text is accompanied by formal portraits of the successive Revs and candid snaps of her at work and at play. Further spice is added through interspersed facts and figures and quotes from the many people whose lives she has touched.
