Administrative History

The UT Athletics Media Relations Men’s Hall of Honor Collection was created and maintained by the Media Relations office of The University of Texas at Austin’s Athletics Department. The office is located within the Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium complex and reports to the Deputy Director of Athletics. The Media Relations (previously Sports Information) office is the principal media liaison for all sports at The University of Texas at Austin and is the main contact point for external entities, including media, authors, and researchers, seeking information about UT sports.

As part of the work of the Media Relations office, Media Relations staff collects newspaper and magazine articles, as well as internal and external correspondence of the athletics’ staff, and prepares information packages (guides, news releases, and photos) for the media. They also keep files and statistics related to each game in accordance with National Collegiate Athletic Association requirements.

The Longhorn Men’s Hall of Honor was established in 1957 in order to honor a recipient’s athletic ability, as well as his unique contribution to The University of Texas. The Hall of Honor Council, made up of men who have earned varsity letters from UT, inducts four men each year out of sixteen who are nominated by a selection committee. To be eligible for nomination, an athlete must be a letterman who completed his college career at least 10 years prior to the year of election. Special selections are often made to honor the contributions coaches and athletics administrative staff have made to the success of UT teams. A separate Longhorn Women’s Hall of Honor was created in 2000 to honor the accomplishments of female athletes at UT.

Although honorees in recent years have been drawn mostly from the “big three” teams (Football, Basketball, and Baseball), the award over its history has been bestowed upon former players from the Golf, Swimming & Diving, Tennis, and Track & Field teams. Nationally famous honorees include baseball player Roger Clemens and football player Earl Campbell.

Prior to the office’s conversion to electronic files, the UT Athletics Media Relations office created and maintained paper files on each Hall of Honor inductee. These files were housed at the Media Relations office in the Department of Athletics until they were transferred to the Stark Center in 2012.


Scope and Content

10 Boxes, 1 Oversized Box: 319 Folders, 1911-2013

The University of Texas at Austin Athletics Media Relations Men’s Hall of Honor collection (circa 1911-2013) documents the athletic and professional accomplishments, both at and after UT, of 292 of the nearly 400 men inducted into UT’s Hall of Honor from 1957 through 2011. The collection also documents a number of individuals who were closely involved with UT Athletics and Hall of Honor activities, such as former Governor John Connally and UT Regent Frank Erwin.

Notable people documented in the collection include Clyde Littlefield, who co-founded the Texas Relays in 1925; Darrell K. Royal, coach and the namesake of the stadium in which the Hall of Honor is located; NFL Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell, who as a Longhorn won the Heisman trophy in 1977; seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens; and golfer Ben Crenshaw and his UT teammate Tom Kite. Also of note is a file on Roosevelt Leaks, who played running back on the UT football team from 1972-1974 and who, in 1985, nearly thirty years after its establishment, became the first African-American inducted into the Hall of Honor.

The Media Relations office amassed these materials in order to provide information to news outlets about UT athletes and coaches. The bulk of the collection consists of notes for and drafts and copies of press releases written by the Media Relations office, as well as newspaper and magazine clippings detailing the activities and accomplishments of the honorees. Also included are handwritten and typed letters between the Media Relations office and inductees and their families, résumés, obituaries, and Hall of Honor banquet programs and speeches created from those gathered items. Other types of documents include student-athlete questionnaires, player and team statistics, team schedules, and travel itineraries. Many items relate to UT Athletics staffing decisions, which include telegrams and memos of resignation letters and retirement notices.

Though mostly textual, the collection does include a small number of photographs and a single magnetic tape recording of an interview with Clyde Littlefield.
