A Guide to the UT Ram's Horn Engineering Society Records, 1913-1919
The University of Texas Ram’s Horn Engineering Society was named after the mark of excellence used by the College of Engineering Dean T.U. Taylor.
"Students near graduation became associate members, and alumni contributing to the College became full members. Still seeking to promote his high standards, Dean Taylor initiated a special ceremony to give signed certificates for the Ramshorn Society to each graduate.
This group and another, the Ramshorn Club, provided a forum for preserving UT's engineering tradition of quality, and served as a highly valued advisory group. Through the advice and financial support of these alumni, the engineering program developed strongly in the post-World War II decade. These same alumni helped establish the Engineering Foundation in 1955, and later served on its advisory council."
