In 1909, Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, celebrated its first Homecoming. It was the largest gathering of alumni, students and faculty in the 35-year history of the school. Early Price and her friends were there. She was not, however, an ordinary student. Her father had been a founding partner is the law firm of Fisher, Makemson and Price which is credited with having established the Texas State Bar Association. Her uncle had been on the committee that convinced the Methodist Conference to choose Georgetown over many other contenders as the site for its new university. Her great uncle was one of the first state judges and a wealthy real estate baron who gave land to the new university. Several of her family were married to faculty members at Southwestern and Early, her sister and cousin were founders of Alpha Delta sorority there. This is her story, based on an extensive collection of over five hundred saved letters found by her granddaughter that describe the Price family's close ties to each other, the town they helped build and the university that shaped their lives a hundred years ago.
An abandoned box of documents found in a dark closet has been painstakingly compiled into a full color memoir laid out in the manner of a scrapbook kept by a young girl in the early 1900s. The title is taken from the hymn, "Blest Be the Tie" sung at Southwestern's first Homecoming in 1909--a song that describes Price's close association with her family, the town she called home and her deep attachment to the school she loved. Southwestern's 100th homecoming was held in November 2009.
