Traces of Texas reader Daphne Hatcher sent in this nifty photo of her mom, Hazel Harbison Roehr, mugging for the camera while wearing her dad’s boots, hat, and gun belt, and posing with her calves. The photo was taken in 1940. Hazel raised the calves to pay for her college tuition. She was a freshman at Texas College of Arts and Industries, which is now Texas A&M-Kingsville, but went on to graduate from University of Texas at Austin—paid for by the calves.
