Corsair--Tex Hill was a legend in the best sense of that word. I never had the privilege of meeting General Hill, but I know a few folks from Texas who knew him casually. They describe him in similar terms--a kind, generous man who was also a great leader.

I was saddened by the death of General Hill. While in Graduate School, I included as part og my Master's Theisis a section on one of the Tigers, Bert Christman. After corresponding briefly with Erik Schilling, he directed me to contact Gen Hill and Ed Rector for more information about Bert. Rector was quite ill at the time, and did not respond. Some time passed, and out of the blue I received the most beautiful hand written letter about Bert from Gen. Hill. It arrived too late for any inclusion in my research, but remains one of my most treasured items from the experience.
