History of Beretta

Beretta Hall opened in 1947. Named for Sallie Beretta, who in 1933, was appointed to the Board of Regents of the State Teachers Colleges of Texas. She, and her fellow regent members, most notably appointed Dr. John Garland Flowers to become the third president of Southwest Texas State Teachers College. Furthermore, in 1951, Beretta purchased 125 acres of land in Wimberley, TX near the Blanco River and donated it to the university. This donation of land is the now the site of University Camp.
