This expanded and updated edition of A Pictorial History of Texas A&M University offers intriguing facets from A&M's early history to current issues facing the campus, complemented with more than three hundred illustrations of people, places, and events that molded this university.

A&M's military program received national recognition for providing military leaders during the crises of the Spanish-American War, the two world wars, and subsequent conflicts. With growth have come a more diverse student body, administrative reorganizations, and expanded educational programs.
The spirit of Aggieland, which began over a hundred years ago but beats just as strongly today, comes alive within these pages. The history of Texas ...
