Transcript to twenty-one by the beginning of the fall semester. Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer, superintendent of the Houston public schools, was named president of the new college; F. M. Black, high school supervisor of the system, dean; N. K. Dupre, assistant dean; and H. W. South, registrar. The agreement with the University of Texas and Sam Houston State Teachers College endured for one year. As a result of visits from representatives of the State Department of Education and the Texas Association of Colleges, the Houston Junior College was granted full accreditation in the spring of 1928. The second regular session of the college opened in September, 1928 with 510 students and a faculty of twenty-five. It had now become the largest junior college in Texas; by the second semester of that academic year, enrollment had risen to 615 students. In September, 1929, enrollment was at 584, with a faculty of thirty; and by that spring, had reached 725. At a meeting of the 41st Legislature in January, 1929, a law had been passed validating all public junior colleges then organized and actually in operation prior to January 1 of that year. On February 10, 1930, the Houston Board of Education unanimously accepted the provisions of this act. By this time there was a growing demand on the part of many Houston citizens for a four-year institution. On September 11, 1933, the Board of Trustees of the Houston Independent School District, acting also as the Board of Trustees of Houston Junior College, adopted a resolution "to extend the scope and services of said college to include at least two additional years of college work" and that "said proposed institution be referred to hereafter as 'The University of Houston' ..." On October 16, 1933, this resolution was implemented and as House Bill 194 made law by the 43rd Legislature. The first summer session of the new University of Houston, incorporating the Junior College, opened on June 4, 1934, in the San Jacinto High School with an enrollment of 682 students and E. E. Oberholtzer as its first president. Subsequently the Junior College, operating as an integral part of the University's system of twelve colleges, schools and divisions, continued to grow. During this period (1934-1958) the University of Houston has had as its chief executive officers President E. E. Oberholtzer, President W. W. Kemmerer, Acting President C. F. McElhinney, President A. D. Bruce (now Chancellor) and President Clanton W. Williams. The University of Houston, the second largest university in the state, has an enrollment of 13,050, a physical plant valued at $21,000,000 and a faculty numbering 427. ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT DR. CLANTON W. WILLIAMS President, University of Houston Dr. Clanton Ware Williams, nationally known historian and author who became the fourth University of Houston President in 1956, began his academic career in 1922. He joined the faculty of the University of Alabama in 1929 and was associated with that institution for twenty-five years. During World War II, Dr. Williams served as the chief Army Air Forces Historian in ranks from captain to colonel. In recognition of his distinguished service, besides campaign ribbons, he was awarded the Army Commendation Ribbon with three oak leaf clusters, and also the Legion of Merit. He was recalled to active duty during the Korean War. He became a staff officer of the Air War College. Among his duties were directing research, writing for, and lecturing to military schools at home and overseas. Historical works by the University of Houston President include books in British and American history, various works in antebellum southern history, and in international affairs. Under his direction or editorship many other volumes in the field of military affairs and grand strategy have been accomplished. A.B. — Davidson College, Davidson, N. C.
