The Williams Building (1932) was designed by architect S. C. P. Vosper in a classical revival
style as the headquarters for the Texas A&M System. The building faced the new state highway symbolizing the shift from train to automobile travel. The grand approach created New Main, and mirrored the older campus plan. The eastern facade is notable for the fourteen freestanding modified ionic columns, with portraits of cadets and a young woman. The 53 foot high second floor lobby has a rich interior treatment including a dramatic lighting fixture, and terrazzo floor map with major historical sites of Texas. Named in 1997 for the university's seventeenth president, Dr. Jack K. Williams.
