President of the Texas Center for Regional Studies, Dr. Robin Montgomery, will be talking about his book “Cradle of Texas Road” as the guest speaker at this afternoon’s meeting of the Walker County Historical Commission at 5:30 at the Gibbs-Powell House and Museum.
Dr. Montgomery told me the “Cradle of Texas Road” is “an intersecting series of highways north of Houston. That would be highways 90,105, 45, Madisonville on down to Navasota, then on 105 through Montgomery, Conroe back up 45 to Huntsville . . . .”
Dr. Montgomery also wrote “Roy Harris of Cut and Shoot.” In 1958, Harris fought Heavyweight Champion Floyd Patterson for the title. He will be at tonight’s meeting to sign autographs.
