Milestones in the life of Big Tex
By The Associated Press
Source: www.yesterdayusa.com

1949 --Erected as a 52-foot-tall "Santa Claus" on Nov. 10th, 1949, in Kerens to bolster the town's Christmas shopping.

1950 -- Transported 60 miles to Dallas and sold to the State Fair of Texas for $750.

1952 -- Transformed and unveiled as a giant cowboy named "Big Tex" and made its debut in late October as the official symbol of the State Fair of Texas.
