History of Smith

Smith Hall is named after C. Spurgeon Smith, who was a biology professor and assistant football coach at Southwest Texas State Normal School in 1913. Professor Spurgeon aided in the unclogging of the San Marcos River in Sewell Park from logs and debris. Professor Spurgeon is also responsible for suggesting the bobcat as the official mascot of Southwest Texas State Normal School in 1921.
