Hand painted sign – Architectural remnant from a now- demolished historic building on the University of Texas at Austin campus
This sign once hung on one of the buildings that was part of “Little Campus” (1823 Red River St.) in Austin, Texas. Little Campus was originally a cluster of old buildings that were built c. 1858 to house military personnel. General George Armstrong Custer was posted there during the brief time that he was assigned to Texas shortly after the Civil War was over (c. 1866 or 1867). It’s my understanding that in one extant photograph, the Custers are shown on the front porch of one of these buildings that later became collectively known as UT’s Little Campus.
A hundred years after General Custer’s stay, the buildings at Little Campus housed the UT Austin Division of Extension, which offered classes to individuals in the community who had not been formally admitted to the University.
When I lived in Austin during the late 1970s, a campus modernization plan was developed that would have entailed completely tearing down Little Campus. The plan was submitted to the UT Board of Regents for approval. I was one of many who wrote letters to regents (in my case to Regent Tom Law of Ft. Worth) imploring them to save Little Campus and its history. The final outcome was that as a compromise, the building now known as John W. Hargis Hall (now listed in the National Register of Historic Places) was spared. After the demolition of the other buildings started, I was allowed to purchase this sign, which marked the Division of Extension Division office.
