  More about Kate Galvin Orgain

Kate Alma Galvin Orgain was born in Chicago of wealthy parents. After her education was completed, she moved to the Round Rock area where she taught music and art.

After her marriage to John, Kate taught school at Salado College in the late 1860's. During this time, Kate served as the first President of the "Amasavourian" reading society. This group, whose name literally means "love of knowing," raised funds for the purchase of books which became the basis for the Salado circulating library. Beginning in 1890, Kate taught music for several years in Thomas Arnold High School.

Frustrated at the lack of reading and teaching materials available, Kate wrote or edited several books from 1900 to 1904 which included, Southern Authors in Poetry, Supplementary Reader and A Waif from Central Texas which was later published in The Bohemian - a nationally distributed literary magazine.
