312 Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Not until 1876 did the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas
open its doors, but the untiring efforts of Governor Davis in 1870-1871
had laid the essential foundations. His attention to the details of this sub-
ject, his concern about obtaining the best possible price for the land scrip,
his insistence on approving most actions in advance but delegating full
authority when it was appropriate, all confirm Davis as a strong and
conscientious executive who was accustomed to making his own decisions
and who was determined to obtain every possible benefit for his state.
Here’s what’s next.
