M. K. Hage Centennial Professorship in Education
From M. K. Hage’s children, Patricia Hage Hirsh, Charlotte Hage Nacozy, Robin Suzanne Hage, and Jennifer Hage Bond:
M. K. Hage was our father, and his passing in December of 2007 was a time of profound sadness and reflection for us. He lived a life well-spent in the benefit of others. He. was an amazing man. During a long and eventful life, he transitioned from a son and young veteran of World War II to a University of Texas at Austin graduate, public school teacher, and visionary administrator. As a real estate investor he became a pioneer in the field of medical property development.
From our earliest years, Dad shared his love of learning and the deep pride he had of the University. His fondest memories were of the days he spent completing his undergraduate and graduate degrees in education and business administration. Dad knew that his friendships with fellow students and relationships with favorite professors remained a source of inspiration, influence, and happiness for him always.
