The other Texas frontier by Harry Huntt Ransom( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?One is tempted to say that wherever there was a frontier in America there was a counterfrontier and that the main purpose of this counterfrontier was not only to help man grow or dig or catch or kill his livng but also to put this man in communication with the traditions of his kind and thereby secure to his descendants the benefits of the free mind.? ?Harry Huntt Ransom The reflections of Harry Huntt Ransom (1908?1976) in The Other Texas Frontier present an alternative to the stereotypical picture of the brash, blustery heroes of the Texas frontier. Here, in six highly readable essays, Ransom posits a thesis of the counterfrontier: a quiet settling of the land by thoughtful, undramatic citizens who, he says, were the other Texans?the Texans without guns. Three of the essays are profiles of gifted men from Texas? nineteenth century: Ashbel Smith, physician, diplomat, and first president of the Board of Regents of the University of Texas; Sherman Goodwin, physician, horticulturalist, bibliophile (and Ransom?s own grandfather); and Swante Palm, Swedish immigrant, bibliographer, and generous patron of the University of Texas libraries. Harry Huntt Ransom, one of Texas? most accomplished men of letters and for forty-one years an integral part of the University of Texas System as professor, dean, president, and chancellor, leaves an extraordinary legacy to Texas for both his educational and literary service. Though educated out of state, he returned to his native Texas after completion of his PhD at Yale to teach, research, and write in the fields of copyright law, literary history, and bibliography. As founder of the Humanities Research Center, he was squarely in the tradition of the men he was writing about. Compiled and edited after Ransom?s death by his wife, Hazel H. Ransom, the literary sketches of The Other Texas Frontier form a book that Ransom himself had outlined but had not completed.--Amazon.com

Snow in Austin : a collection of photographs from 1895 to 1985 by Harry Huntt Ransom( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographs in this volume were taken by amateur as well as professional photographers, and were made available from the archives of the state, the city, and The University of Texas at Austin. They span a period of almost a century, dating from a time when the only data on snowfall was from personal diary, to the present day with its sophisticated climatological records of the weather bureau. Turning the pages of this volume will be nostalgic for those who knew Austin and UT in earlier years, and pleasurably enlightening for newcomers to the area. Most of the photographs were gathered by Chancellor Emeritus Harry Ransom as he worked on the pictorial history of the University, a project that was incomplete at the time of his death in 1976. Other photographs and materials were added by his widow, Hazel Ransom"--Jacket flap

The other Texas frontier by Harry Huntt Ransom( Recording )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This collection of six essays offers an alternative to the stereotype of the frontier as a bold, boisterous place of gun-toting men larger than life. Ransom's frontier is populated with quiet, contemplative people who settled the land through hard work and cooperation, accustomed to using tools, not guns
by Harry Huntt Ransom( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The personal papers of Harry Ransom contain materials reflecting his preparatory school and college years, as well as his relationship to his mother Marion G. Ransom and his wife Hazel. Included are class notes, examinations, a commonplace book, together with a large group of photographs, most of which date from 1924 to 1944. A small group of personal correspondence is included, as is memorabilia and minor printed material. There is little reflecting Ransom's early years as a University of Texas instructor and nothing dealing with his career as an administrator there after 1950
