A History of Dedication to Quality

Over the past few years, I have had the good fortune to chronicle the history of TXAPA in a series of articles that have appeared in the association's fine quarterly publication, Texas Asphalt. With the challenges and growing complexities of our industry, I have found a periodic view of our past to be quite instructive and even inspiring.

Over the past few years, I have had the good fortune to chronicle the history of TXAPA in a series of articles that have appeared in the association's fine quarterly publication, Texas Asphalt. With the challenges and growing complexities of our industry, I have found a periodic view of our past to be quite instructive and even inspiring. It's my hope this blog will provide convenient access to all of the articles that have appeared before as well as new articles and papers. At this time, the portal is broken down into three categories, the history of TXAPA, articles that deal with the history of the association, TXAPA Pioneers, articles about some of the older founding member companies, and the Greatest Generation, generally, lifetime members that have made outstanding contributions to the success of TXAPA.

In addition to this offering, we are placing a paper that I wrote a few years ago that is a historical overview of the highway system in Texas which I found fascinating as I hope our readership does. I hope that you will make this portal a regular stop during your online time. As we will be adding new material regularly, I would encourage you to check the site often. In addition, I will be placing more emphasis on member companies and new features in the future instead of the hard association history writings. Also, this venue gives us a marvelous opportunity for some two-way communication. I would love to hear from you with any ideas, criticisms, or just to say hello.

Best regards and happy reading,
Gary Corley, San Antonio
