        (in whose public schools he was educated), encouraging the development

        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

        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
