Construction of Pat Neff Hall, Baylor's administration building. The cornerstone for the building had been laid on Dec. 7, 1938, and the building was in use by late 1939. Named in honor of Baylor's president at the time, former Texas Governor Pat M. Neff, Pat Neff Hall originally housed the president's office and other administrative offices, the John K. Strecker Museum, a memorial room containing mementoes of university namesake Judge R.E.B. Baylor, The Texas Collection and eight classrooms. The photograph was taken by famous Waco photographer Fred Gildersleeve. Courtesy of The Texas Collection.
