Summary
"The photographs in this volume were taken by amateur as well as professional photographers, and were made available from the archives of the state, the city, and The University of Texas at Austin. They span a period of almost a century, dating from a time when the only data on snowfall was from personal diary, to the present day with its sophisticated climatological records of the weather bureau. Turning the pages of this volume will be nostalgic for those who knew Austin and UT in earlier years, and pleasurably enlightening for newcomers to the area. Most of the photographs were gathered by Chancellor Emeritus Harry Ransom as he worked on the pictorial history of the University, a project that was incomplete at the time of his death in 1976. Other photographs and materials were added by his widow, Hazel Ransom"--Jacket flap
