Transcript dedication "We must reckon presciently with the realities of space and time, and not be content merely to lav down on paper good principles of conduct." This diplomatic axiom symbolizes the constancy of purpose and clarity of vision endowed to Harry Fouke, University of Houston Athletic Director. Since becoming Athletic Director in 1945, Mr. Fouke has pursued relentlessly one goal —a progressive athletic program for the University. Present national recognition in many fields testifies to the affable director's success. During eight years under Harry Fouke, University athletic teams have climbed from their first inter-collegiate competition to participation in widespread national meets. His department bears the scars of a Megiddo. Conscientious academicians who opposed general sports emphasis were convinced, that under Mr. Fouke, leadership would be substituted for dominance. Fouke's eternal optimism seeped through the thick skin of alumni lethargy. Student apathy changed to progressive fervor as "big name" teams were scheduled. Coaches and universities across the nation heard about "Big Red" for the first time as Harry Fouke traveled, talked, explained, and in every way espoused the potential greatness of the University's athletic program. The competent coaching and administration staffs of the department under his guidance have realized this goal. Before coming to the University Mr. Fouke coached at San Antonio Tech and Thomas Jefferson high schools. He left coaching to become Athletic Director for the San Antonio public schools—later he assumed the same duties in Houston. From this position he joined the University of Houston. At Rice Institute he lettered in football and basketball, and won the coveted Bob Quin award for athletic and scholastic accomplishments. Thus, in realization of his past achievements and confident in his future contribution to University progress, the Houstonian staff dedicates this record of the past year's activity to Harry H. Fouke, University of Houston Athletic Director.
