Pictured above is the University of Houston campus in 1940. I ran across this factoid while researching something for another post:

The University of Houston moved to its present campus in 1939. Its first building, the Roy Gustav Cullen Building, was dedicated on June 4, 1939, and classes began the next day. The R.G. Cullen building is believed to be the first college building built with air conditioning anywhere in the world. (Wikipedia: The University of Houston)

This is, of course, if you’ve spent any time at all in Houston, about the least surprising thing you’ve ever heard.
