The STCL administrative staff in 1976. 

I'm not gonna lie - I was really trying to come up with something witty to say about this photo. However, all that comes to mind are Bee Gees lyrics and it would be a violation of copyright to post them.

Throwback Thursday: legal research edition

By Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian & College Archivist

We know you have memos and papers due soon - get thee to the library!

Margaret Walford, '48, John W. Newman, Walton E. Boyd.

This photo was taken as a part of a book campaign in the early 1950s, to help build the South Texas College library collection. In the 1950s, we were still part of the YMCA and just one part of a larger entity that also contained a college of commerce and a junior college. The junior college eventually became the University of Houston-Downtown. This photo, along with a dozen others, were found by UHD archivist Melissa Torres, and were given back to STCL this past July.
