Gohmert

GOHMERT

Louis Buller Gohmert was born in Cameron, Texas on January 17, 1926 to parents Louis F. Gohmert and Carrie Buller Gohmert. He grew up in Cameron and graduated from Cameron Yoe High School. He attended Texas A&M University and was a member of the Corps of Cadets, played on the Texas A&M Baseball team, and majored in Architecture. While squaring to bunt during a baseball game, an inside pitch broke his finger. With his finger in a cast, Louis was summoned by the Dean of the Architecture Department where he was offered a choice: he could play baseball or he could pursue architecture, but he could NOT do both. Seeing a brighter future for himself in Architecture, he wisely chose to spend his career designing buildings that came to life as he dreamed them.
