Harold "Doc" Mattson became president of the North Texas Association in 1947. Through his contacts with the University alumni office, Doc obtained a list of 1,500 to 2,000 alumni in the DFW area. This list helped Doc organize a group of 25 to 50 people who, under his leadership and direction, were able to dramatically increase membership in the association. Eventually, functions began drawing as many as 200 Nebraska alumni.
The North Texas Association stepped up to the plate and made the Foundation its primary benefactor of fundraising. The University Foundation used the monies raised from all sources to fund student loans and scholarship to the University. The North Texas Association also established its own scholarship fund, which still exists today.
