Olin Teague’s three terms as Chairman of the Committee on Space and Aeronautics are commemorated in this 1974 portrait. Seated behind a desk, Teague is shown as if at work, looking thoughtfully into the distance, with United States and Texas flags framing the figure. This is the first of three commissions from the committee given to artist Jean Pilk.
