A Houston Post Article On Sugar Land's Growth Projections in 1962

I'm not certain how I collected this article, but as you can see it was published in The Houston Post on November 11, 1962 -- almost exactly 50 years ago to the day.  I checked on Sugar Land's and Fort Bend County's actual census figures over the intervening years.  

Sugar Land Population

 In 1990 (I couldn't find 1987): 33,712
 In 2012: 81,700

Fort Bend County Population

In 1987: 200,000
In 2012: 600,000

The photo doesn't have a caption, but I presume that is Bernard Johnson with Tom James (President of Sugarland Industries) and Bill Little (then Mayor of Sugar Land).
