Texas Alpha commissioned Vantine Studios to recreate composites from 1978 through 2015. They recently arrived and are now hung. These composites are 2/3 the size of the originals to conserve wall space. They all have matching frames and, like everything else in the new house, they look very good. Unfortunately, Vantine does not have composites before 1978 and that is where alumni brothers need to step up. With today's technology, we can take small composites and blow them up to 2/3 their original size without losing sharpness. We can then send them to Vantine for matched framing. We are trying to get all composites going back to the '50s when they first began. Texas Alpha needs to borrow any small composites and send them to Dallas for enlarged imaging. They will be returned once the process is complete. Brothers willing to loan their small composites, please contact Brent Monteleone '84 at (832) 922-1041.
