Long Description:
Corsicana Daily Sun 3/3/1961

"The Frank N. Drane school was erected in 1930, though it received an east wing addition built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938. A plaque in the front hallway says, “This school is dedicated to the enrichment of life, the spirit of youth measured by progress, activity, friendliness, co-operation, idealism, and character and good citizenship.” This school is now known as “Sam Houston Elementary,” although the engraved former name still resides above the entrance."
