History of Arnold

Arnold Hall is named for M.L. Arnold, one of Southwest Texas State Normal School’s earliest faculty members. Only one of three doctoral professors on campus, Arnold’s legacy is a collection of eulogies, inspired by students and his own son, who lost their lives in World War I. A notable poem entitled “The Deathless Dead” may be found in the 1919 Pedagog.
