Throwback Thursday: First Class Edition

by Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian & College Archivist
South Texas School of Law Catalog, 1925-1926, p. 18
The South Texas School of Law welcomed it's first class on September 24, 1923. Our inaugural class consisted of 29 men and 5 women who attended part-time in the evenings. The Law School was part of the United YMCA Schools, and was founded to provide working people with an opportunity to obtain a legal education while continuing to work during the day. The faculty, represented in this photo by Gavin Ulmer, was likewise part-time and was comprised of practicing attorneys and judges. For more information about our early years, check out the chronological history of the Law School.

La Justice, 1974, p. 15. 
To celebrate the return of J.J. Watt... er, I mean football season, this week we go back to 1974 to look at our own football teams. Yes, we had official football teams in the 1970s! I can't find much information on them in the archives, so if you know anything about it or you played on one of the teams, please email me.
