Hi, all, I was at a university function the other day and got into a chance
discussion with a long-time TCU donor whose father had been inspired by a
former member of our department, Edwin A. Elliott. I told him that this Dr.
Elliott had been lost to our departmental history and that I'd like to know
more. We have since struck up a correspondence.

In the process, I have learned that Elliott was a Texas Institutionalist
and that (so far as I can tell) he wrote his dissertation under Ayres. He
also went on to work with the FDR government (National Labor Relations

TCU has an archive that I plan to check out so no one please bother
yourself with working to find any of the sort of details I'll find there,
but I was curious if anyone here remembered him. Anne Mayhew, do you recall
Edwin Elliott from your days in Austin?

I plan, incidentally, to do some sort of memorial in the department so this
can be remembered. I was already thinking of doing this, but now I'm
convinced that I have to do it given that he was an Institutionalist. We're
overlooked enough as it is.



P.S. As I assemble materials, I'll share anything that I think you'll find
