Historical Note

The University of Texas University Club was established on December 14, 1904 with Dr. W.J. (William James) Battle as president. The club was "instituted for the association of members of the faculty of the University of Texas, and other persons interested in literature, science, or art." Members did not need to be a graduate of the University to join the University Club and the group attracted the participation of many local businessmen, in addition to UT alumni, staff, or administrative officers.
