Frazier, Rex Dunbar | University of Houston Libraries

Name: Frazier, Rex Dunbar

Historical Note: On August 16-19, 1915, Galveston Island was hit by a devastating hurricane. Damage amounted to $50 million, but there were only 275 deaths. The low loss of life is attributed to the protection of the seawall, constructed after the 1900 hurricane which did $40 million worth of damage and killed thousands of people.
