Theodore Schmidt Collection

About the Collection

Theodore Schmidt was a member of the first class of students who enrolled in Lutheran Concordia College, a boys’ high school in Austin, in 1926. These images, shared by his daughter, depict his time at the school as well as notable places in Austin and the surrounding areas.

Schmidt’s daughter Ruth Schmidt Sievers has shared 73 images that he took during his time at the Austin campus, including photographs of student trips to Barton Springs, Deep Eddy Pool, and the Williamson County town of Walburg. Schmidt’s photographs record student committees, campus activities, and athletic teams, as well as numerous views inside and outside the student dormitory, Kilian Hall.
