This 1963 home movie captures St. Edward’s University students from several Hilltopper athletics teams practicing across the Austin campus. The film opens with the equestrian drill team on their horses, before cutting to a group casually playing catch. The remainder of the film shows student athletes serving and returning at the tennis courts, before others engage in a baseball game at the Lucian-Hamilton Baseball Field.
St. Edward’s University is a private Roman Catholic institution of higher learning located in Austin, Texas. It was established in 1877 by the Reverend Edward Sorin, CSC, Superior General of the Congregation of the Holy Cross. Sorin also founded the University of Notre Dame. The campus moved to its current location in 1889. Famed Galveston architect Nicholas Clayton built the university’s Main Building, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. St. Edward’s received its university charter in 1925, and became co-educational in 1970. Today, the university’s enrollment exceeds 5,000 students rom 44 states and 51 countries.
