The tradition gained broad significance during the WWII defense of Corregidor in Manila Bay. Surrounded, outnumbered, and with little hope of relief, the contingent of Aggies on the "Rock" mustered at the encouragement of Gen. George F. Moore '08. News of the Aggies' reflecting on the victors of San Jacinto and their alma mater electrified the nation.
This book traces the evolution of Aggie Muster from its early roots to the modern-day observance. Through research and hundreds of interviews, John A. Adams, Jr. '73 has captured the essence and spirit of the Texas Aggies' most time-honored tradition.
