Special piece of UTA history returns to campus


Part of UTA's history has returned to campus in time for the UTA Founder's Day celebration at noon-1 p.m. today, Wednesday, Oct. 11, on the Library mall. Several broken pieces of marble discovered in a north Fort Worth home are imprinted with “Carlisle Military Academy 1906.” Carlisle Military Academy was one of the early names of the institution that would eventually become UTA. The marble is thought to be the original cornerstone of a cadet barracks built in 1906. The stone now resides in Special Collections in the Central Library. LEARN MORE.
