The University of Texas at Austin

My hostess took me to the University Of Texas at Austin. What a magnificent campus! Founded in 1883 the main campus sits on 350 acres in downtown Austin.
Here I am in front of the Main Building which opened in 1937. The UT Tower lights up orange for their various wins, both academic and athletic.
I'm with Cesar Chaves on the UT Campus. Cesar Chaves Estrada (March 31, 1927-April 23, 1993) was a Mexican American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers.
Me with Barbara Jordan on the UT Campus - Barbara Charline Jordan (February 21, 1936-January 17, 1996) was a politician from Texas. She served as a congresswoman in the United States House of Representatives from 1973-1979. She was the first African-American female from a southern state to serve in the House.
This gorgeous house is The Littlefield Home. Built in 1893 for $50,000, it stands on the west side of The University of Texas at Austin campus. It's said to be haunted - read more at
