Angelina Eberly Luncheon a Blast from the Past
It was a standing room only crowd at the Driskill Hotel for the annual Angelina Eberly Luncheon benefiting the Austin History Center. Those that were seated represented Austin citizens from the 1930’s to the present. Austin History Center Association President Evan Taniguchi was joined by Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell in welcoming the crowd. The program this year focused on the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, “When Austin, Texas became ‘Austin.'” These were the years when a relatively sleepy state capitol/college town became known across the globe. Sharing their memories and the stories they covered were four journalists with a fifth journalist, Ron Oliveira, as moderator. Ken Herman, Judy Maggio, Cathy Conley Swofford and Monte Williams had the crowd laughing, reflecting and exclaiming as they talked about their favorite moments. Special thanks are due all the sponsors for the luncheon, in particular the lead sponsors, Linda Bush, Seton Healthcare Family and Texas Gas Service.
These are exciting times for the Austin History Center as it gets organized for the “sooner than later” move into the Faulk Central Library. After the new central library is built, the Faulk will be empty, thus allowing the move of the History Center. The expanded space is desperately needed as the current building is filled to bursting with material.
