Howard was one of the original Houston Oiler cheerleaders when the program started in 1978. In this interview, Howard explains how she came to be a cheerleader. She drove a friend to the cheerleader tryouts on June 3, 1978 and was sitting in the bleachers watching when she was introduced to one of the judges. Howard decided to tryout and made the first cut and was selected to be an alternate. As rehearsals went on, the judges noted that some of the alternates were excellent dancers (including Howard), so the alternates were chosen to be cheerleaders, too. The Derrick Dolls - as the cheerleaders were known - pumped up the crowds at football games, made public appearances, acted as grand marshals in parades and took photographs with dignitaries. The Derrick Dolls were given just had one uniform and it had to last the entire season, Howard shares her favorite memory of the Astrodome: her first year was also Earl Campbell's first year, and she describes the powerful experience of the players and cheerleaders running out to the field at the beginning of a game.

Description An account of the resource Seth Morris was one of the architects for the Astrodome at the firm of Wilson, Morris, Crain and Anderson. He was also the coordinator of the contractors, architects, engineers and county. In this interview his wife, Susie Morris, shares some of her memories of the Astrodome. Many people thought the Astrodome was going to fall down and ribbed Seth about it. The air conditioning system was never done on such a scale, and there were concerns that it wouldn't work. Susie thought that Judge Roy Hofheinz was instrumental in promoting the Astrodome. He had a place behind the scoreboard which included a putting green, shooting gallery, fish pond and huge bathtub. She mentions some of the problems which arose, such as the leaks, the grass, and the glare from the sunlight. Rights Holder A person or organization owning or managing rights over the resource.

Wilbur Thompson worked as a parking cashier starting in the mid-1970's. He was at the Astrodome for Astros and Oilers games, as well as the Houston Rodeo and Livestock show, plus various concerts. His children would often come to the Dome when he was working. Joseph Thompson (Wilbur’s son) was a big Astros fan. He and his school friends would attend the games. He thought it was very cool to have a dad who worked for the Astros. Susan Thompson (Wilbur’s daughter) recalls fond memories of spending a day at Rodeo and then going to the concerts each weekend on a $5.00 ticket. The youngest Joshua Hansen (Wilbur’s grandnephew) recalls attending games as a family and being amazed at the size of the Dome. The family agrees that the Astrodome is an important part of their Houston heritage. License A legal document giving official permission to do something with the resource.
