Hard covered book titled BAYLOR AT INDEPENDENCE by Lois Smith Murray, 1972, Baylor University Press, Waco, Texas, 421 pages.
The Republic of Texas was less than ten years old when the frontier territory's Southern Baptists resolutely resolved to create a university "to meet the needs of all the ages to come." This book is the first official in-depth history, covering the crucial and turbulent 1845-1886 era of the university's career at its birthplace. It is the detailed understanding but unvarnished story of Baylor's years at Independence. The wealth of illustrations includes Tom Lea's portrayal of Judge R.E. B. Baylor, and famed typographer Carl Hertzog served as a special consultant in the book's production.
This book is in VG+ condition, pages clean and intact, and the binding is tight. Don't miss the opportunity to add it to your library! A must have for any Baylor Alumni!!
