Mayo Memorial Service

In 1921, friends of President Mayo and of East Texas State Normal College were invited to attend this memorial service held in the College Auditorium four years after President Mayo’s death. The service featured music and an address and concluded with the placing of flowers on the grave. Today, the tradition of holding an annual memorial service for President Mayo continues. The annual Graveside Service is held at President Mayo’s grave at the northeast corner of campus during the week of homecoming.
