Dr. Gloria Contreras (1947-) was recruited to work at the University of North Texas in 1987 because of her strong background in multicultural and social studies education. Her passion was teaching social studies with a global perspective, and furthering the place of women and minorities in education, teaching and scholarship. In 1989, she was appointed the first Director of the Office of Minority Affairs (now the Office of Multicultural Affairs), where she was tasked to create a plan to recruit and retain minority students and faculty. Contreras co-authored some of the leading K-6 social studies textbooks published by Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, served as the Executive Editor of The Social Science, a national journal for educators, and was elected Director of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.

[Sarah T. Hughes' personal chair]

Description: Photograph of Sarah T. Hughes' personal chair, held by UNT Special Collections. The chair is velvet red with a brown wooden base. Judge Sarah T. Hughes (1896-1985) is best known for swearing in Lyndon B. Johnson, to the U.S. presidency after John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963. She began her career as a lawyer in Dallas, when she joined her first firm in 1923. During that time she served three terms in the Texas House of Representatives, as one of the first females elected after women’s suffrage. In 1935, Hughes was appointed the first female district judge in Texas, and was elected seven times after her initial appointment. In 1961, after being denied nomination to a federal judgeship because of her age, sixty-five, Hughes called on the Texas Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Club to take on a letter-writing campaign in support of her candidacy, which led to President John F. Kennedy appointing her later that year. Among her most notable decisions as a federal judge were Roe v. Wade, 1970 (the legalization of abortion in the United States), Shultz v. Brookhaven General Hospital, 1969 (equal pay for equal work for women), and Taylor v. Sterrett, 1972 (upgrading prisoner treatment in the Dallas County jail).
