Transcript Optometry student spend countless hours in the lab. Photo by Gary Sapone Armistead Champion of Optometry Jerald Stricklands, Dean College of Optometry Photo by Mark Lacy Tie UH College of Optom etry named its building for Dr. J. Davis Armstead, of Lubbock, who is recognized as a champion for the profession of optometry in Texas. A ceremony was held on Sept. 11, at which time a new plaque was unveiled near the entance to the building. "This was a much deserved tribute to a man who has dedicated years of service to the profession, the UH College of Optometry and the University of Houston," said Jerald W. Stricklands, dean of the UH College of Optomerty. D r . Armistead was am important political figure when the UH College of Optometry was established in 1952. He was later appointed by then Governor Preston Smith to the UH Board of Regents in which he served from 1971 to 1983. It was during his tenure on the board that the optometry building was constructed. "This was truly the crowning glory of my career and for this honor I feel humble and grateful," said Dr. Armistead. "This meant so much to me because friends both in and out of the profession requested it and worked so hard to make it happen." The first request to name the building in honor of Dr. Armistead came from a formal resolution, with an unanimous "I have had a love affair with the University of Houston from the first day I set foot on campus in 1951/' -Dr. J, Davis Armistead vote, from the Texas Optometric Association. Since then, more than $ 1 million has been raised or pledged to the college in his name. This more than meets a requirement by the UH Board of Regents for naming any structure on campus. Established in 1952, the College of Optometry is a regional resource for optmetic education, vision research, and patient care and services. Completed in 1976, the building features state-of-the- art facilities and equipment which provided an optimal learning and research environment. Dr. Armistead has served the university and college in many capacities, the latest as President of the Foundation for Education and Research in Vision. In 1992 he was selected by the university as College Volunteer of the Year. Dr. Armistead recently retired as a practicing optometrist in Lubbock. "It has been my good fotune to have been involved with the UH College of Optometry since its inception, and to have had the opportunity to watch it develop into one of the foremost optometric institutions in the world," Dr. Armistead said. "I have had a running love affair with the University of Houston from the first day I set foot on campus in 1951." -Fran Howell UH Optometry Building Renamed NSM/Optometry ijlTl 131
