Walter Neighborhood Library

About

Walter Neighborhood Library is named after M.E. Walter, who, during World War I, received the French Croix de Guerre for heroism. After the war, he came to Houston and began a newspaper career. He retired as vice-president of the Houston Chronicle in 1964. As vice-chairman and later chairman of the City Planning Commission, he took a special interest in the development of Greater Houston, the freeway system, and the growth of the Civic Center.
