A Witness to History
In her most recent book, Janet M. Neugebauer, deputy director of the Southwest Collections Library at Texas Tech, tells the story of George H. Mahon, a West Texas lawyer who became one of the most powerful men in the US House of Representatives. During his 44-year-long Congressional career, Mahon served on the House Committee on Appropriations and witnessed military purchases evolve from horses to bombers capable of traveling 2,000 miles per hour.
The book, which is made possible in part by a grant from the CH Foundation, includes a forward by Chancellor Emeritus Kent Hance.
“A Witness to History” is published by Texas Tech University Press.
