about

Ima Hogg (1882–1975) was a philanthropist who left her mark on Texas through dedicated support of the arts, education, and mental health. In this engaging biography, David B. Warren paints an intimate portrait of an extraordinary woman through extensive archival research and insights gleaned from years of working by Hogg’s side. The book traces Hogg’s devotion to children’s welfare, from establishing a center for children struggling with emotional challenges to serving on the Houston school board. It also describes Hogg’s efforts to establish the Houston Symphony and her generous donations of major works of art to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston—particularly her collection of American furniture and her home, Bayou Bend. Excerpts from Hogg’s personal journals and letters, plus images from her life and photographs of landmark artworks she collected, enrich the narrative. This fascinating book celebrates Hogg’s legacy and her enduring impact on the cultural climate of an entire state.
