On February 7, 2003, the Ransom Center hosted the Eugene McDermott Scholars from The University of Texas at Dallas.

The Eugene McDermott Scholars Program was established by Mrs. Eugene McDermott to give students a diverse array of intensive extracurricular experiences, including internships, travel, and cultural enrichment.

McDermott Scholars are selected on merit of high intellectual achievement, evidence of leadership skills, and high ethics.

The McDermott Scholars were treated to a private tour of the Center's conservation labs and the photography, art, and manuscripts collections.

They also visited the RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service, the State Capitol, and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.
