The last two posts have covered early Texas High Schools so today we move it up a notch to a couple of Colleges. The first is the beautiful State Medical College in Galveston Texas which has a very unusual design with the rounded ends and a very elaborate entrance and is shown here on a 1919 Curt Teich post card.

The second view is the Mary Conner College in Paris Texas which seems to have the school in the front of the building and a dormitory in the back of the building. This appears to be a woman's college, the correct spelling is probably Mary Connor College and the only other information I could find was that it was out of business by 1924 or earlier. This is a circa 1908 Souvenir Post Card Company postcard. Both of these post cards can be found in my Texas listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.
