DKR: The Royal Scrapbook
by Jenna McEachern with Edith Royal
University of Texas Press
Decades after his last game in 1976, Darrell K Royal remains “The Coach,” the winningest football coach in University of Texas history. Royal is still revered as “a coach who would rather lose a game than engage in unsportsmanlike tactics; who would neither make excuses for losing nor brag about winning..." in the words of the City of Austin’s “Darrell Royal Day” proclamation. DKR offers an intimate, insider’s view of the private life of the man behind the legend through an extraordinary collection of never-before-published photographs, letters, newspaper clippings, football ephemera, recollections, and “Royalisms” lovingly preserved by Edith, Royal’s wife of more than sixty-five years.
