Nacogdoches in Nacogdoches County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Alton W. Birdwell
In 1953 Birdwell's friends endorsed and dedicated SFA's first scholarship to him. On this site in 1954, the Regents named a new classroom building in his honor. After Birdwell's death, Boynton said "The college is a perpetual memorial to the late educator."
The Board of Regents of Stephen F. Austin University takes pride in designating Birdwell Plaza a part of the historic campus property he loved.
