Stanley Livingston Webb III

70

Brother Stanley Webb III passed-away in May 2012, from a long battle with cancer.

Stanley was a lifelong resident of Odem, Texas. He was a successful farmer & developer in the Odem area.

A few years ago, Stanley’s name was on theLost Brothers list. Since I was from Odem and knew Stanley, I reported his address and phone number. He was also on “Facebook”. Believe he was initiated in the early sixties… 1962 or 1963. I graduated in 1961, and he was a few years behind me.

His Obituary was in the “Odem-Edroy Times”, back in May.

I do not have all his information. I know he left a wife & children & grandchildren. I did not have a contact for ATO-ZM, until I received an email yesterday (8-5-2012). Please add Stanley’s name to yourChapter Eternal“ list.

Fraternally yours,

Gary Pugh

ATO Flag Ceremony

On April 19th, 2012 the Zeta Mu chapter of Alpha Tau Omega gathered at the Oakwood cemetery in Huntsville, Texas for the signature event of the semester. The chapter holds a ceremony every year to honor General Sam Houston and replace the tattered flags flying over his grave with new ones. This year our key note speaker was Mayor of Huntsville Mac Woodward. The event was a huge success with various members of the community attending.

Newton Gresham - ATO Honor Initiate

Tonight I learned that the Newton Gresham Library at Sam Houston State University is named for an ATO Honor Initiate. Newton Gresham was initiated in 1963 and served as president of the university from 1963 to 1965. Very cool. More information about Brother Gresham can be found in the Philosophical Society of Texas Memorial.

Old Main: Looking back 30 years later

Old Main Burns - Photo courtesy SHS University ArchivesThirty years ago this month a fire consumed “Old Main” on the SHSU campus. Many of us remember being rousted out of bed and heading to the hill to watch as flames consumed this historic building. The Houstonian has published an article looking back at that fateful night:


University community members remember the night that a fire destroyed the Old Main building

On one cold night David Clements was walking back to his dorm when he saw smoke billowing out of a historic campus building. Old Main was on fire.

The freshman called the fire department to report what he saw. Firefighters from surrounding cities had to be called in because of limited staff at the Huntsville station. The wood and brick framed building had already been engulfed in flame for 20 min. It was too late to save.

Thirty years ago, on Feb. 12, 1982, Old Main fell for good.
