by Bill Ryan Baker

Jim Hollers, born in the Texas Panhandle, developed an illustrious career not only as a dentist but also as a brigadier general in the U S Air Force Reserve, as president of the Texas and the American Dental Associations, and in numerous civic organizations in San Antonio. While president of the San Antonio School District Board, he pushed through the program which built Alamo Stadium, and asa trustee of the San Antonio Medical Foundation he was instrumental in locating a new medical school for the city and then a dental school, and served on the Texas Coordinating Board of Colleges and Universities.

The politics of the city and the state were rough and tumble, and Jim Hollers was a powerful force for the good of the people. In this book, with a foreword by Dr. Claude Nabers, Bill Ryan Baker shows his love of history with meticulous research and detail as he tells the story of this remarkable man.
