Dorothy Knox Howe Houghton1944 - 2018

On Friday, the 9th of November 2018, Dorothy Knox completed her time with us. She is already missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing Dorothy Knox. Without her, there would not be a Friends of the Texas Room.

Dorothy Knox Howe Houghton's dedication to the Friends of the Texas Room was just one example of the importance of history and historic preservation to her. We are grateful for the time she shared with us.

Her obituary reads, "Throughout her life, Dorothy Knox focused much of her time and energy on education, particularly American history as well as multicultural understanding and sensitivity. She was known for her keen intelligence, critical thinking, and sharp wit. Friends and scholars frequently approached her for advice and tapped her vast knowledge of architectural, political, and social history."
