A Guide to the Glenn Dooley Photograph Collection, ca. 1930-1949
Born in Kansas in 1905, Glenn Dooley moved with his family to Texas in 1910. He taught chemistry in various universities and colleges until his retirement in 1970. In addition to teaching he was involved in genealogy, which led to his interest in county courthouses and other places of historical importance.
Public buildings in Texas, primarily county courthouses and the state capitol, are the major focus of this collection. Also included are images of bridges, rivers, riverboats, and stadiums, one photograph of the Alamo, and scenic views of Mexico.
