History of Smith

Smith Hall is named for 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. The most significant impact to Texas State from Professor Spurgeon is that he suggested the bobcat become the official mascot of Southwest Texas State Normal School in 1921.
