Historical Note

The Gymnasium Fund was a fundraising project created and maintained by Thomas Watt Gregory from 1907 to 1928 to finance the construction of a gymnasium on the University of Texas at Austin campus. Gregory was a lawyer and University of Texas alum that served on the UT Board of Regents from 1899 to 1907, and later served as U.S. Attorney General under Woodrow Wilson.

Gregory expanded his proposal during his time as president of the UT Ex-Students’ Association from 1926 to 1928 to include funding for the construction of the Texas Union building, Anna Hiss Gym for women, and Hogg Auditorium. The Gregory Gym, built in 1930, was named in his honor.
