Thomas Shrader Sports Library

From the time he was a young boy, Thomas Shrader loved sports, collegiate and professional.  So much so that he attended live games whenever possible, which included driving from Austin to Morgantown, West Virginia to watch the Longhorns play the Mountaineers.   Evidence of his lifelong affair with football, basketball, and baseball comes in the form of a large collection of media guides, programs, annuals, and magazines documenting the teams and the games that Mr. Shrader loved.  Donated by Mr. Shrader’s family – his wife Michelle, son Ted, and daughter-in-law Mary, the collection is available for research.  A basic inventory of the collection is here.  Please click here to read Ted Shrader’s homage to his father and their joint love of “the game.”
