Kerrville Mayor Gordon Monroe, around 1968

I remember when Gordon Monroe was Kerrville's mayor -- it was about the time I started first grade -- and about the time the Butt-Holdsworth Memorial Library was opened with a grand community celebration.  Here are some press photos of Mr. Monroe doing the job of mayor.  I look at these and remember my own days of smiling, pen in hand, in support of this cause or that cause, when I served Kerrville as mayor, twenty years ago.

  1. "Gordo," I remember him well - great man.

  2. I did not know that Mr. Monroe was the mayor of Kerrville at one time. He oft times drank coffee with my Dad and my Dad always spoke well of him. Thanks for sharing Joe!
