Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Charles Christal


After graduation went to UT for a couple of semisters, still couldn't handle English.

Worked at various jobs, New Deal Tin Shop, Grapette Bottling Co., Chatleff Controls, Farmer's Insurance, before going to Houston to gain experience in Data Processing so someone in Austin would talk to me about a job in Data Processing.

Joined the Humble Credit Card Center as a temporary employee in Sep 1968 and retired from Exxon Mobil June 2002, still processing credit sales. Just couldn't get away from them.

Married Feb. 1970, Widowed June 1993 due to a freak accident. The loss of my wife taught me a lot about how emotions can control us.

After my wife died I volunteered at Crisis Hot Line of Houston for about 10 years. Did some volunteer councilling with a church loss support group. Did trail work at Houston Arboritum and Nature Center, was president of the Houston Happy Hikers (a Volkssporting club - check out AVA.org) for several years and still help them out a little.

After my mother-in-law died my son Neal and I made plans to move back to Austin.

Had a home constructed on some property in Cedar Valley that has been in the family over 100 years and moved back in Nov. 2006.

Very Happy to be back on the place I grew up as a kid.

From the 1958 Rebel Roundup:

"Never overtaxed with words"
Chess Club

In September 1954, The American Statesman started a column called "Tri-High Scoop". A student from each high school wrote about the happenings at their school and then it was published in the Sunday paper. Each school had a "catchy" name, Austin was Maroon Musings, McCallum was 'Callum Clues and Travis was Travis Drawl. Enjoy reading about the days when you were at Travis.

Travis Drawl
By Jill Harvey
September 16, 1956

Pep rallys seemed to dominate the scene at Travis this week, as the Rebels prepared for their first gridiron clash.

The sophomores had a special pep rally Thursday to learn new yells and the school song. Frank Guffin, chemistry teacher and football announcer, gave a brief explanation of the fundamentals of football at the all-school rally Friday morning.

The Thespians of the Scarlet Masque, Travis' dramatic organization, held tryouts for new members under supervision of its new sponsor, Mrs. Pat Jean McAllister. President Tommy Davidson with other Masques Elena Conkle, Helen Willingham, Joyce Barnett, Bobby Brasfield, Gwynne Guffin, Charles Moritz, and Virginia Jarmon served as a judging committee in selecting the new Masquettes. Others on this committee were Janice Herring, Charles Perrone, Fred Blum, Marcia Bland, and Jo Dittmar.

Two senior Travis football players, Terry Jackson and Tommy Davidson, were chosen by Principal W. A Sloan to attend a luncheon Tuesday of the Austin Rotary Club. Boys from other schools were present at the affair held in the Driskill Hotel.

Parliamentary procedure swings into full force in every advisory, as selection of advisory officers and Student Council representatives began last week to continue into the first part of this week.

Miss Irene Randerson, Student Council sponsor, announced that the first council meeting will be next Wednesday when last year’s vice-president, Tommy Davidson, will preside over the election of new officers.
