Excellent post! Good reading, and I especially enjoyed the pictures. Things are never as big over 50 years later, are they? I would have sworn our bleachers went higher and held more people than the picture shows. I also don't remember Arthur being that trim. (:~O)

Dan Jensen

These old newspaper clippings make for plumb loverly reading and I wish more of you would send copies of what you have to Ed.

Hugh Taylor

The old photographs are interesting. Those guye were surely not eating at McDonalds as slim as they were or was coach making them run more to get in shape. Where are the "Glass backboards"? I also thought the bleachers were higher.
Ed or Art, could we have directions to "Cedar Baylor"? Is it up by Waco?
Thanks, Art & Ed.

Arthur Landriault

I don't beleive that McDonalds even existed , at least in this area, at this time. The best hamburger I can remember eating was at Mabry's Cafe in Kemah, cost was 25 cents. An Coach did run our "tails off", bleachers and all.


Ed Davis

OK, Hugh, I just typed in Cedar Baylor to see who was paying attention. Can't slip anything by you guys, though. And I do remember Mabry's with great fondness. I had my first cheeseburger ever there and I remember they gave us basketball players a discount for eating there, especially on game days. And I remember Ed Mabry fondly as our band director for a number of years.

Ed Davis

Just to get Mr. Taylor off my back, I have gone in and corrected the Cedar Bayou spelling. I kind of liked Cedar Baylor myself, but misguided Tech exes like Hugh would not understand such. That prairie wind out in Lubbock does strange things to people. Old age is my excuse for such, however.

My Photo

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
