A Pictorial History, 1876-1996, Second Edition

By Henry C. Dethloff

This expanded edition of Texas A&M University: A Pictorial History gives a panoramic view of Texas A&M, from its infancy as a college with 48 agricultural and mechanical (engineering) students to today's diverse campus of more than forty thousand students.

Captured in full-color photographs are the modern university, its buildings, its far-reaching programs, and its students. The book is also a gallery of Aggie greats—on the battlefields of five wars; on the athletic fields; in industry, agriculture, science, and civic leadership. Historical photos show 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.”

HENRY C. DETHLOFF, an emeritus professor of history at Texas A&M University, is author or coauthor of more than twenty books on American, economic, and business history.
