The All-Girl Orchestra provided entertainment at collegiate dances, assemblies, and other social events around campus during the years of 1943-1946. The orchestra came into existence when a large portion of the Sam Houston male population went into service for WWII. The group, directed by Eileen Wooten, debuted in November of 1943 and was a hit with students. The group also found success outside of Huntsville traveling to areas like Kearne, Nebraska. The group was disbanded after the war’s conclusion.
We do not have a lot of material on this amazing group nor a list of its original members (the university did not publish a
yearbook the year they formed) but we will keep digging.
