Carpenter, who lived at 4809 Drexel Drive, which is one of the historic homes on the 2011 Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society’s Home Tour, was involved in writing the bill which placed one of the major Texas Universities at its current location.  Which university was it?  Baylor in Waco, Texas in Austin, Texas Tech in Lubbock or SMU in Dallas?
