Biographical Sketch

Terms in office for the various Texas Tech University administrations represented in this collection are: Dr. Lauro Fred Cavazos (1980-1988) and Dr. Robert Lawless (1989-1996).

In 1980 Lauro Fred Cavazos became Texas Tech’s tenth president, as well as the first Hispanic and the first Tech graduate to hold that office. Cavazos earned his B.A. and M.A. in zoology at Texas Tech University and a doctoral degree in physiology from Iowa State University. Before returning to Tech in 1980, he taught at the Medical College of Virginia and at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where he was also Dean from 1975 to 1980. On August 9, 1988 President Reagan nominated Cavazos for Secretary of Education, and on September 20, 1988 he was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate. He remained in the position until resigning in December 1990.

Dr. Robert W. Lawless served as the eleventh president of Texas Tech University from September 1989 until his resignation in April 1996. Dr. Lawless envisioned Texas Tech University as a research institution, emphasizing the research aspects of the university as well as fund-raising. Dr. Lawless resigned in 1996 to take over the presidency at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma.
