The late Joe M. Kilgore was a founding director and executive committee member of the Greater Austin Crime Commission. Following decorated Air Corps service in World War II, Kilgore served in the Texas House of Representatives (1947–54). He was then elected to the US House of Representatives, succeeding Lloyd Bentsen, and spent a decade representing the Rio Grande Valley’s 15th Congressional District before relocating to Austin and joining the law firm that later became McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, L.L.P. A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin and its School of Law, Kilgore also served as a system regent (1967–73) and was honored as a distinguished alumnus (1982). Previous Kilgore Award recipients include Adm. Bobby R. Inman, USN (Ret), Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, University of Texas President William Powers Jr., US Ambassador Antonio O. Garza Jr., and Senator John Cornyn.
