Mystery Video: October 2013

Who is this mystery man? This month’s mystery video is a montage of photographs, presumably depicting the same man from childhood to adulthood, from the collection of Austin cinematographer Gordon Wilkison.  He appears to have been in the Texas Cowboys, a student group at the University of Texas in the 1940s or 1950s, in the military, and is at one point handling a mystery substance. Who is this man and what is he holding? Why was he speaking at the St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio?  Who built that sand pyramid?
