Texas History - Dan Moody

The 30th Governor of Texas was Dan Moody.
Accomplishments: Moody became the youngest governor and the first to hold an outdoor inaugural ceremony when he took office in January 1927. During his terms in office he sought reform of the judiciary, taxation, and the prison system; improvements in the highway system and education; and development of a uniform accounting system and creation of a state civil service system. The legislature passed only about half of Moody's proposals: funding for education was increased, taxes were reduced, the highway system was expanded, and the administration of the prison system was changed superficially.
He was born on June 01, 1893 in Taylor, Texas and died on May 22, 1966 in Austin, Texas.
