The Year of Moon and Eichelburger Home File
These images feature members of the Weed 'N Wish Garden club visiting a home. Some images display Christmas decoration, including a creative Santa Claus riding a rocket towards Earth. The package of slides is labeled "Year of Moon" but all prints were created in November of 1963, meaning this title does not reference the 1969 moon landing. One theory is that the title references the ongoing effort of the Apollo missions (which began in 1961), or it could reference the completion of the Manned Spacecraft Center (later to be renamed Johnson Space Center) in 1963.

In the night time gar fishing contest, competitors would try to win the boat and motor as the biggest prize, while daytime competitors attempted to win prizes for other species of fish.

Dues Family Images- Magliolo Family Files
These images featuring the Dues family were generously donated by Dr. Mike Magliolo and Diane Magliolo (née Dues). Photographs in this file include images from Dickinson as early as the 1890s, and the file displays several Dickinson businesses and recreational activities. Dues family members AJ Dues, Teressa Dues, and Tony Dues are especially featured throughout this collection.
The Dues family have been active members of the Dickinson community for years. George H. Dues, patriarch of the family, was a successful farmer in Philothea, Ohio and lived with his wife Catherine Dues and their seven children: Henry, Leo, Edward, Tony, Clara, and Mary. He was advised by his family physician in 1906 to move to a warmer climate in order to improve the health of his two youngest children, who suffered from pulmonary issues. A family friend, Mr. Thaman, had recently purchased land in Alta Loma-Dickinson, Texas area, then regarded as a "southern paradise". Mr. Thaman successfully convinced the Dues family to head southward. George Dues purchased 150 acres of coastal prairie along present day FM 646 from Mr. Thaman at $35 an acre. All members of the family, save for Mary, who married and stayed in Ohio, headed to Dickinson. Following clerical errors by Thaman, Mr. Dues ended up paying for his land twice. The family cultivated the land and planted a variety of crops and planted 100 pine trees in symmetrical order, creating the "Pine Row" that can still be viewed from FM 646. George and his sons established a nursery and landscaping business that introduced new kinds of plants to Galveston County. They and their descendants would continue to develop this company. The Mary Austin League Nursery was named after the land purchased on FM 646, as it was part of Stephen F. Austin's "Old 300" original land grants given to Austin by the Mexican government. The Dues brothers opened a second location on Galveston island and planted several of the oaks found around Galveston. In addition to their work with various forms of flora, the brothers were skilled woodworkers. In 1918, the Dues purchased cattle and expanded their scope of business into the dairy market. Dues milk would be used at the famous "The Garden" restaurant, known for its delicious ice cream and the presence of the only female restroom between Houston and Galveston. The Garden was owned and operated by Clara Dues, daughter of George Dues.
The Dues dairy would grow even larger in the 1940s under the tutelage of George Leo Dues Jr, becoming one of the largest dairies in this part of Texas. Dues Jr. would go on to purchase more land in Dickinson.
Up until the 1960s, The Dues family owned the Gulf, Sinclair, and Humble service stations in Dickinson. Tony Dues would marry Teressa Park, daughter of J.M. Parke, who was stationmaster of the G. H. & H Railroad Station. He owned the Gulf Oil distibutorship, Gulf service station, and an insurance agency, and would instrumental in creating the Dickinson Volunteer Fire Department. He was the first chief and would serve for many years. Bob Dues, son of Ed Dues, would help create the Gar Rodeo, a huge fishing tournament attracting fishermen and beauty queens from around the area. Bob and his wife Bonnie would also purchase an RV business that remains today: Dues Campers. Dues family member, Julie Dues Masters, would go on to be the longest serving mayor of Dickinson and serve as the executive director of Keep Dickinson Beautiful.
In addition to numerous other familial contributions to Dickinson, members of the Dues family have volunteered with the Junior League, Ronald McDonald House, Galveston County Medical Auxiliary, CHAMPS, Dickinson and Santa Fe Little League, Rotary and Optimist Clubs, Galveston County Family Service Center, the Knights of Columbus, and several other organizations.

Medicine Men Article
This magazine article focuses on the history of the Magliolo family, beginning with the immigration of Dr. Andrew Magliolo from Sicily, and moving on to focus on his grandson, Dr. Mike Magliolo. The article describes important moments in the Drs. Magliolo's careers.
Magliolo Family File
This file is composed of 11 digitized photos focusing on the Magliolo family. This file includes photos from the foundation of the Magliolo Clinic and family photos of the Magliolo brothers throughout the years. All content was graciously donated by Dr. Mike and Diane Magliolo.
Magliolo Familial History
When Andrew Magliolo immigrated to the states from Favigana, Siciliy in 1905, he was a barber with dreams of owning his own shop. Told by a family friend that America was a land of endless opportunity where he could achieve that dream, he immigrated in 1905 with $50 and the knowledge of two words in English- "thank you". He entered the country through the port of Galveston and began working with his future brother in law, Rosario Vassallo, as a barber. He would meet his wife, fellow Sicillian Grazie Dimare, in 1909. He was naturalized in 1920. Andrew would achieve his dream of owning his own shop on the corner of 25th and The Strand in Galveston, and Andrew and Grazie would go on to have seven children- Joe, Ursula, Andrew, Adolph, Albert, Amedeo, and Virginia.
The 5 male children of the family would go on to work in the field of medicine. This crossover was spurned not only by the quality of barbers often doing some medical work (pulling teeth, suturing wounds, bleeding) but because Andrew Sr. had numerous doctors as clients. Prior to and during their pursuit of medicine, many of the sons followed in their father's footsteps and worked as barbers. Grazie contributed through her work as a skilled seamstress and took care of the Magliolo family home. Some of her signature dishes were squid lasagna and seasame seed and kooka detchie fig bar cookies. Ursula Magliolo would go on to work as a secretary for the G H & H railroad.
During WWII, Dr. Joe Magliolo, the eldest, was spared the draft due to his status as the only doctor in Dickinson when the war started. Andrew Jr. was drafted shortly after the war began. Adolph was drafted after finishing dental school, Amedeo and Albert were drafted under the V-12 program that allowed them to finish medical school. After the war, all five brothers began to work in the clinic in Dickinson. They would assist in the creation of the Galveston County Memorial hospital and helped triage victims of the April 16th, 1947 Texas City disaster.
The Magliolo family clinic grew in 1967 and had nine doctors operating within its newly opened doors. All members of the Magliolo family would continue to be important fixtures in the Dickinson community, serving as school board members, scout leaders, little league workers, church volunteers, blood donors, medical society projects, voluntary school nurses, Lions and Optimist club members, and much more.
Dr. Mike Magliolo would go on to follow in his family's footsteps and become the first second generation OB-GYN at Baylor (following his father, Amedeo, aka Dr. Amy).
This file focuses on the Magliolo family, especially the Magliolo brothers and their medical pursuits.
