    Opened in 1933, UT’s W.C. Hogg Building originally housed geology, encircled with one-of-a-kind terra cotta friezes of dinosaurs, quartz crystals, shells, and early life. “O Earth, what changes hast thou seen,” is a quote from Tennyson. It’s now the Natural Sciences HQ.

    April 4, 1924: Groundbreaking for Texas Memorial Stadium. Instead of gold shovels, four explosives were set off at each of the football field’s corners. The last caused the collapse of the speaker’s platform, with Texas Governor Pat Neff present. No one was injured.

    1936: A portrait of Sutton Hall when it was home to the College of Education. The building is now a part of the School of Architecture. Peeking over the roof is the UT Tower under constriction.

    1931: Architect Paul Cret’s first proposed rendition of UT’s Main Building included a short, massive Tower to house the book stacks for the central library. Battle Hall is on the left, Garrison Hall on the right.

    Are there any pictures of the west side upper deck of DKR-TMS under construction? It was constructed in the early 1970s (~1971). I've tried to find construction pictures to no avail.
