This home movie captures scenes of the 1955 Texas Relays track meet, likely the high school division, held at Memorial Stadium at the University of Texas at Austin. The Texas Relays are an annual track and field competition hosted by the University of Texas. They began in 1925, and are now the second largest track meet in the United States.
