A DAC marker honoring a former State Regent, Mrs. Henry Lee Tenison, was dedicated on October 6, 1941.  A granite boulder was placed on the grounds of Galveston’s Rosenberg School to commemorate the grave site of George Campbell Childress, author of the Texas Declaration of Independence, on the hundredth anniversary of his death.  The ceremony, during which the marker was presented to the City of Galveston and the Rosenberg School, was broadcast over the radio.  This project was completed during the term of Mrs. Frederick Brewster Ingram as State Regent.
