The University of Texas System

Constructed during the period 1912-1914. This building was the seventh United States post office location in Austin, Texas. The supervising architect for the Neoclassical revival style structure was James Knox Taylor of the U.S. Treasury Department. It was built by Dieter and Wenzel Construction Company of Wichita, Kansas, at a cost of $172,987. The land cost $40,000.

Following construction of a new post office and federal building in 1965, the building was given to the University of Texas system by the Federal Government; it was remodeled into administrative offices by the University in 1970. The building was named in honor of Claudia Taylor Johnson, wife of the 36th president of the Unites States of America.
