Celebrating the Life
Eugene George

Eugene George: Architect, Scholar, Educator, Photographer celebrates the contributions George has made to the fields of education and historic preservation and recognizes his work as and architect and photographer.

This online exhibit was completed in December 2010 by Kelli Hansen as part of a capstone project for the MSIS degree at the University of Texas School of Information. In addition to this exhibition, the capstone project included the processing of George's papers and photographic materials, which are housed at the Alexander Architectural Archive of the UT Libraries Architecture and Planning Library. A detailed finding aid is available online at the Walter Eugene George, Jr. Collection: 1951-2007.

Steven Williams of the UT Libraries Technology Integration Services provided considerable programming support and expertise to make this project possible. Processing of the collection was accomplished in part with the generous funding of Eugene and Mary Carolyn George.  The project field supervisors were Beth Dodd and Donna Coates, and the faculty supervisor was Dr. David B. Gracy II.

The header graphic for this exhibition was created from a measured drawing of the San Antonio de Valero Mission, which George created for the Historic American Buildings Survey in 1961. The original digital image of the drawing is available online from the Library of Congress Built in America collection.
