History of Butler

Butler Hall opened in 1965 and is named for Mary Stuart Butler, who was a vocal music teacher at Southwest Texas State Normal School from 1903 to 1942. At the start of her career, the music department only offered three courses consisting of the knowledge of the major and minor scales along with sight reading exercises. Mary Butler exclusively taught for seventeen years the classes offered by the music program and directed an opera which combined the music and speech departments.
