Dolph Briscoe Jr. Exhibit Now on Display at the Briscoe–Garner Museum


This program presents the exhibition and opening of the new Briscoe-Garner Museum. The Briscoe-Garner Museum is one of four divisions of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, an organized research unit of The University of Texas at Austin. The museum is located in the house that served as John Nance Garner's home for more than thirty years. The museum is dedicated to the remarkable lives of John Nance "Cactus Jack" Garner and Dolph Briscoe, both Uvalde natives and historically important political figures from Texas. The first floor documents the life and career of "Cactus Jack" Garner, the first Texan to serve as speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives and as Vice President of the United States. The second floor is dedicated to Dolph Briscoe who served as Texas Governor from 1973 to 1979, and led a distinguished career in public service, business, and ranching.
