Transcript JAMES T. DUKE BOARD OF REGENTS (TOP LEFT) James T. Duke, resident of Johnson City and retired officer of Brown and Root, Inc., was named to his post in 1963 by Gov. John Connolly. "I've been chairman of the Building Committee ever since it was organized. It's been an enjoyable and romantic time." "All we need is money. If we can get more, I'd like to spend it for you." "I don't think it's within the province of the board to delve into details. In fact, we delegate most of our administrational authority to President Hoffman. He has to check it with us usually, or does check it with us, before he does anything of any importance that will affect the student body — like the troubles we've had out there. All of it was checked with the board before a decision was made." "Oh, yes, the university does play an important part in the community, but it certainly upsets the community sometimes." TRAVIS C. JOHNSON BOARD OF REGENTS (TOP RIGHT) One of the youngest regents, Judge Johnson has been on the board since he was appointed by Preston Smith in 1969. Now privately practicing law in El Paso, Johnson has been involved with many agencies on youth and mental health. He received a B.B.A. from Texas A&M University and graduated with a doctorate in jurisprudence from the University of Houston Law School. Judge Johnson has the reputation for being the least conservative member on the Board of Regents. JAMES H. GREER BOARD OF REGENTS (LOWER RIGHT) One of the newly appointed regents, James H. Greer is currently serving his second year as a member of the Board of Regents. He is a former graduate of UH. Greer obtained a B.S. in Chemical Engineering in 1954. Greer resides in Houston and is president of the Shelton W. Greer Company. His continuing interest in the university is reflected in a series of generous gifts: December, 1959 — $10,000 — To be applied toward engineering salary commitments. July, 1964 — $1,000 — To be applied toward athletic scholarships. May, 1965 — $5,000 — To be added to the President's Restricted Fund. November, 1967 — $1,000 — To be applied toward athletic scholarships. June, 1968 — $1,000 — To be applied toward athletic scholarships. April, 1969 — $1,500 — To be applied toward athletic scholarships. Greer was appointed by Gov. Smith in 1969. 239
