A Guide to the Weldon Wayne Rogers Photograph Collection, ca. 1940s
Weldon Wayne Rogers was a Plan II major at the University of Texas in the 1940s.
This collection consists of images taken by Weldon Wayne Rogers of Austin and the University of Texas campus in the 1940s. It includes many views of the UT tower and other buildings, the state capitol and Congress Avenue, as well as the Homer Rainey protest and a UT Round-up parade. Many images appear to have been taken from a car window; the donor is the daughter of the photographer and said that her father was visited by an old girlfriend with a car that they drove around in while he snapped pictures. In addition to the Austin scenes are several views of Fair Park in Dallas.
