Inscribed to Ted Trask by author. Mirabeau B. Lamar played an important roll in the history of Texas. He was the second President of the Republic of Texas, after Sam Houston. He was highly literate, a poet, an editor and the son of a Georgia plantation family. He was called the "Father of Education". His phrase in his message to Congress, "A cultivated mind is the guardian genius of democracy," became the motto of The University of Texas. A middle school in Austin is named after him. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 244 pages; 30953; Signed by Author View more info
