        (in whose public schools he was educated), encouraging the development 
        of public housing, 2 major medical centers, numerous development 
        projects, and the public laws he authored that brought the HemisFair '68 
        World's Fair to San Antonio, thereby making the city a recognized center 
        for international conventions and tourism;
Whereas Henry B. Gonzalez, a champion for the downtrodden and the poor 
        (exemplified, among other things, by his 22-hour long filibuster of 
        segregationist bills in the Texas Senate in the 1950's), consistently 
        brought his skill and passion to bear on behalf of the underprivileged,

        on principle throughout his multifaceted career, without fear or favor;
Whereas Henry B. Gonzalez will always remain an enduring symbol of integrity, 
        independence, solid principles, and strength of character, and will
