Construction on the four dormitories and Oberholtzer Hall was begun in 1949. Dedication and cornerstone laying ceremonies for the Ezekiel W. Cullen Building took place in '49. Former Governor W. P. Hobby spoke to the crowd of 3,000, recounting highlights in the life of Ezekiel Cullen who, as a member of the Texas Congress, presented the plan which made public land available for schools. Dr. E. E. Oberholtzer was made president emeritus while Dr. W. W. Kemmerer became acting president of the University. The Central School of Nursing of the U. of H. was established as a part of the Texas Medical Center. In 1950, the Ezekiel W. Cullen Building was completed and occupied. The M. D. Anderson Library was built, and the dorms were completed. Students moved into the new dormitories in 1951, and Oberholtzer Hall was opened for use. In 1952, the College of Optometry began, the College of Pharmacy was accredited, and the University was given an educational television permit. Dr. W. W. Kemmerer was named president of the University of Houston. Mr. Hugh Roy Cullen again donated oil royalties to the University—this time in the amount of $2,225,000. The M. D. Anderson Library was built in 1950.
