Notable Persons in Texas History

The Fort Bend County Historical Commission received an inquiry from Humanities Texas recently, so I reviewed their Web site.  I had never seen it before.  Here's the link.  

The archives page had some interesting (to me) short intros to a variety of notable people in Texas history.  Here is a quick selection in case you want to investigate further.

Finally, I want to throw in the story of Claude Bracey, Rice University's (then Institute's) first Olympian.  He was a sprinter with a unique story as this newspaper article explains: click here to view the article.

This short article from a Rice newsletter includes a good photo of him running at Soldier Field in Chicago: click here to view the article.
