In 1910, after the urging of Texas Superintendant of Public Education Robert B. Cousins and a competition among various cities, the state legislature established West Texas State Normal College in Canyon. The college trained teachers for the growing Panhandle region and proved to be "more than brick and mortar" after the 1914 fire destroyed the administration building.
One-hundred years later, the institution has gone through a number of name changes but the dedication to education remains. West Texas A&M University has a rich history with a mixture of academics, faculty and administrators, students, sports, and arts and entertainment. The history of the institution often reflected regional, state, national, and even global events. Lifelong Canyon resident, West Texas State University alumnus, and West Texas A&M history professor Dr. Marty Kuhlman spent years researching and writing the history. The institution has enhanced the lives of everyone from alumni to citizens of Texas and beyond.
