WHEREAS, through his vision and unyielding insistence that only
structures of beauty, suitability, utility and high quality should be
allowed on the campus-a vision well exemplified in both the attrac-
tive exteriors and efficient interiors of each of the buildings in which
he played a part in designing; and
WHEREAs, his artistic perceptions and innate good taste are every-
where manifest here on the campus, particularly in the large group
of buildings erected in the period from 1930 to 1940; now, therefore
BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the Regents of The University of Texas
express publicly to Dr. William James Battle the appreciation and
gratitude both of ourselves and of the people of Texas for what he
has wrought. It has been the privilege of few men to serve their
beloved University so long and so well. Everywhere on the Main
Campus we have evidences of his handiwork. The beautiful build-
ings and the attractively planned grounds, in which he has had
such a responsible part in bringing into being, will long stand as
a living monument to his good taste and his sense of the harmonious
and beautiful. These will serve, as he has wished, on into the
unforeseeable future as a powerful influence in the lives of those
who will come after us. In grateful appreciation we, the Regents,
extend to him this acknowledgment of his outstanding accomplish-
ments through years of unselfish service to this institution.
