Dec. 5, 1997

A new exhibit that chronicles the life of Gov. Bill Daniel will open Tuesday, Dec. 9, in the Town Hall at Baylor University's Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village. "A Lone Star Legacy" will tell the story of Daniel and his contributions to Baylor.

On display will be items such as posters, saddles and whips from Daniel's performances in Wild West shows, branding irons, surveying equipment and awards. Of particular interest will be objects Daniel gathered on his travels and during his tenure as Governor of Guam. Also on display will be the campaign wagon and other memorabilia from Daniel's race for county attorney.

As part of a class project on exhibitions, "A Lone Star Legacy" was designed and will be installed by approximately 20 students in Baylor's Department of Museum Studies.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 5-7 p.m. Dec. 9 for students, museum associates and guests.

Admission to the village and exhibit is $3 for adults, $2 or seniors and $1 for students grades K-12. Baylor students, faculty and staff are admitted free. The village is open from
