Item Description
Title Ezekiel W. Cullen
Description Ezekiel Wimberly Cullen was born in 1814. He moved from Georgia to Texas in 1835 and settled at San Augustine, where he established a law practice. He represented San Augustine County in the House of Representatives of the Third Congress of the Republic (1838-39), and he was chairman of the education committee. While in this position he sponsored the Cullen Act, which started land endowments for public schools and universities, thus laying the basis for an eventual Texas public education system. Cullen practiced law in San Augustine until 1850, when he was appointed purser in the United States Navy. He lived for a time in Pensacola, Florida, and later in Washington, D.C. He returned to Texas in 1871 and opened a law office in Dallas, where he lived until his death in 1882. Noted oilman and philanthropist Hugh Roy Cullen was his grandson. The Ezekiel Cullen Building on the University of Houston campus, constructed in 1950, was named in his honor.
