    To mark the legacy of the alumnus and journalist, watch a video about “And That’s the Way It Is,” an art installation by new media artist Ben Rubin.

      So awesome a tribute for an amazing man and journalist, who was trusted because he delivered news, not sensationalism. Can't wait to visit Austin to see it.

      Walter Cronkite was such an influence on so many of us. It is exciting to see the creative way the University has used his words to, perhaps, influence a new generation.
