NTAC alumni reunion
More than 35 alumni from the North Texas Agricultural College (now UTA) classes of 1942, 1943 and 1944 ate a barbecue lunch and renewed acquaintances April 20 at Barnard's Mill in Glen Rose. Built in 1860, Barnard's Mill was originally a water-powered grist mill and is now the home of Richard H. "Dick" Moore ('42). Moore, second from right on the bottom row, has hosted the NTAC alums four times in the past 10 years. "It's a very close-knit group," he said. "Some of them hadn't seen each other in 60 years, yet we felt just as close as if we'd been together yesterday."
