Former Gov. Bill Clements Makes Historic Gift to UT Southwestern With $100 Million 'Transformative' Contribution
Date:6/12/2009

Texas physicians, medical researchers, and health care professionals who will make a profound difference in the quality of life in Texas and the nation. The Board of Regents expresses its gratitude to Mr. Clements for this generous investment in the continued excellence of UT Southwestern and the health of our state."

Mr. Clements was the first Republican to serve as governor of Texas since Reconstruction, serving from 1979 to 1983 and from 1987 to 1991. He achieved major success as an oil drilling contractor before he went into politics. He founded SEDCO in 1947, and it grew to become the world's largest oil and gas drilling contracting company, merging with Schlumberger Limited in 1984. He retired as chairman in 1985. Mr. Clements today raises cattle and is an avid Texas history enthusiast, with a personal library of more than 8,300 volumes, most of which are about Texas history and the Southwest.

An adviser to U.S. presidents, Mr. Clements from 1969 through 1970 served on the Department of Defense Blue Ribbon Defense Panel. He was Deputy Secretary of the Department of Defense from 1973 through 1977 and is credited with helping modernize America's armed forces and instituting sound business practices and efficiencies. In 1983 he served on the President's Commission on Central America and the President's Commission on Strategic Forces.

A 1939 alumnus of SMU, he served on its Board of Governors for many years and as its board chairman. He is married to Rita Crocker Clements, who was a UT System Regent from 1996 to 2007.

In 2000 Mr. and Mrs. Clements were honored with Southwestern Medical Foundation's Charles Cameron Sprague Community Service Award, which recognizes those who have provided significant support to the fields of health care, medical education and medical research.
