Transcript President DR. CLANTON W. WILLIAMS Dr. Clanton Ware Williams, nationally known historian and author who became the fourth University of Houston President in 1956, began his academic career in 1929 when he joined the faculty of the University of Alabama, with which institution he was associated for twenty-five years. He received his A.B. degree from Davidson College; his M.A. from the LIniversity of Alabama; and a Ph.D. degree in History from Vanderbilt University. During World War II Dr. Williams served as the Army Air Forces Historian in ranks from captain to colonel. In recognition of his distinguished service, besides campaign ribbons, he was awarded the Army Commendation Ribbon with three oak leaf clusters, and also the Legion of Merit. In 1946, Dr. Williams was named special consultant to the Department of Defense. An appointment as consultant to the U. S. Commission of Education followed in 1948. Dr. Williams was recalled to active duty during the Korean War at which time he served as a staff officer of the Air University. Message to Students Into the social and economic bloodstream of the great metropolitan and industrial complex whose center is Houston, Texas—into the arterial system of Texas and the Southwest and of areas far beyond— pours from a relatively young but powerful new university a steady infusion of new strength. An alphabetical listing of the many types of graduates who go forth from this institution of learning begins with accountants, agricultural economists, architects, artists. It ends with physiologists, psychologists, trade and transportation experts, zoologists. There are in fact 207 degree plans offered by this great seat of learning. It is difficult to analyze the impact of this university upon the area it serves. The expected earning power of its products because they did attend the University of Houston is already in excess of a quarter of a billion dollars a year. And this says nothing about professional skills, technical competence, or culture in general. Nor can one weigh in dollars the influence of more than eight thousand school teachers who have been graduated from the University of Houston. And then there is the impact upon the whole of life wherever they be of tens of thousands of well-educated mothers whom the University of Houston is now proud to call alumnae. And you who read this are party to its future pride and accomplishments. CLANTON W. WILLIAMS 16
