UNT: The First 50 Years : Our Alma Mater ("Glory to the Green and White")

The alma mater was the product of the collaboration of Charles Langford, an athlete, and Julia Smith, a music major. Composed in 1922 the song made its debut in print in that year’s Yucca. “Glory to the Green and White” has undergone several word changes over the years, mainly due to the changes in the school’s name.
