As Texas marked its sesquicentennial in 1986, Southwest Texas State University students made their own contributions to celebrating the state’s 150th year. From 1985-1986, history students in Dr. Ron Brown’s oral history courses interviewed current and former faculty, staff, alumni, and community members from San Marcos and its surrounding areas. The interviewees shared their memories about the university and life in Central Texas, offering a glimpse into the important people, places, and events that define Texas State University and its place in the Lone Star State.
