[McDonald Observatory]

Description: Close-up photograph of the exterior of McDonald Observatory, a round, white building several stories tall, capped with a very large dome. A seal and text are visible above the entrance. The image accompanied a written speech, with the caption: "Some would designate the rough inaccessibility of the Davis Mountains of the Big Bend a handicap, but this resource has turned to great advantage. The McDonald Observatory was constructed on Mt. Locke in the Davis Mountains in the 1930's with money given to the University of Texas by William Johnson McDonald" (pp. 9-10).
