Biographical Sketch

Senate Bill No. 103 provided for the establishment of a “State school west of the 98th meridian and north of the 29th parallel,” thereby setting the ground work for the creation of Texas Technological School. By 1963, the board of directors officially approved "Texas Tech University," preserving aspects of the original name and retaining the trademark Double-T. The State Legislature, on Sept. 1, 1969, formally approved the board's suggestion.

Scope and Contents

The collection is comprised of miscellaneous files on Tech faculty, such as minutes from the Faculty Council and Faculty Senate, and Faculty Standing Committees.
