Carole Ann Pierce, the widow of long time Austin Community College professor L. Patrick Hughes, today donated his entire collection of professional books (approx 350 books) to the History Program at Schreiner University. Hughes taught for 35 years at ACC and was a past president of the Texas Folklore Society. His fields of interest were primarily Texas history, Texas music and Texas folklore. This material will become the cornerstone of a collaborative space for faculty and students in the History and Texas Studies programs.

We at Schreiner University want to thank Mrs. Pierce for this incredible donation to the education of our students!
