iilton, a native of Detroit, Mich., founded Texas
Normal College in Denton in the summer of 1890, ac-
cording to "The Story of North Texas" by Dr. James L.
Rogers of the journalism faculty. Because of the Denton
City Council's difficulty in deciding where to put the

from the Texas Legislature to grant life and first grade
teaching certificates. He boasted that "this is the fore-

on Feb. 12, 1896 at the age of 43.
