Pronunciation[edit]

Why do the British pronounce the name like "Hooston"? I see that Sam Houston's ancestors came from Scotland. Is the family name pronounced "Hooston" there? If so, why do Americans say "Hewston"? How did the great Sam pronounce it? Eric Kvaalen (talk) 17:05, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Happy Anniversary[edit]

It's hard to believe that a decade has passed when a small group of editors, including myself, moved this article from good to featured status. I recall the featured reviews were difficult [1], however we persevered [2]. It would be great to hear from the old crew, stop by and say hello. Postoak (talk) 19:21, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Texas Southern University Picture[edit]

Can you please replace the picture of Texas Southern University (in the education section) with a more flattering one. The campus is beautiful full of picturesque moments.Broadmoor (talk) 16:24, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
