Will on Vacation

Will Hogg, whose estate seeded the creation of the Hogg Foundation, was an important cultural and political figure in Texas in the early 20th century. He was also well known for the pleasure he took in spending the money that came to him as a result of the family's oil wealth. He spent most of it on various business and philanthropic ventures. But he also liked to spend it on himself, and was an avid traveler. The two photos below are from his travels. The first is of Will (middle) vacationing in Miami Beach, lounging on the sand with a couple of his friends. The second photograph shows Will (right) horseback riding in Yosemite in 1912. Take a look at his stylish riding socks!
