Transcript "We can either be bystanders to a passing twenty-first century historical drama of heroic proportions, or we can be leaders." -Marguerite Ross Barnett, President University of Houston, 1990-1992 B ar nett kv Remembered The UH flag flew at half- mast as the university community remembered late UH President Marguerite Ross Barnett one year after her death. The sun broke through the clouds just as UH President James Pickering began the remembrance service held on the steps of the E. Cullen building. First, he recognized Barnett's mother, Mary Eubanks and read from a letter faxed from Barnett's widower, Walter King. The letter stated that King could not attend because he was spending the day at Barnett's grave site in Virginia. Barnett, the first black and first female president of UH, died at the age of 49 from cancer in 1992. She served as UH president for one-and-a-half years. Rev. Robert Budewig, the During the 1991 graduation ceremonies, President Marguerite Ross Barnett embraces Country music performer Larry Gatlin after he received his UH degree. Barnett died at age 49 of cancer; she was the university's first black and first female president. Houstonian Photo. campus' Lutheran minister, offered a word of prayer. " We thank you for her vision for the future that she has instilled in everyone here. Bless those who teach, those who administer, that we may apply ourselves diligently to the principles Dr. Barnett set for all of us." Barnett, the eighth president of UH, was deeply committed to "creative partnerships," or involvement between the university, Houston businesses and community leaders. Under her presidency, UH received a $51 million grant from alumni John and Rebecca Moores, the largest private grant ever given to a public university. Pickering said, "Like all great leaders, Dr. Barnett gave us a vision of ourselves that was larger than ourselves. It is now our obligation, yours and mine, to continue to close the gap between that vision and reality. And as we do so, to keep that vision that she gave us up permost in our mind. Faculty, staff and students attended the service and those in class at 9:30 a.m. were asked to observe a moment of silence. Shortly before the service, a professor dropped a white rose into the Cullen Family Plaza Fountain. Pickering visited the Holman Street Baptist Church immediately following the service for a press conference announcing UH's participation in the Third Ward redevelopment project. "How ironically appropriate that it should happen on this day, and in fact, in this very hour," he said. "The two events linked together suggest how well that vision, and that personality, and that ideal she set before us is alive and well here at the University of Houston," he said. -Karla Mishak Lee Barnett 41
