Holick’s Texas A&M Aggie Senior Corps of Cadet Brown Leather Boots. Holick was born in 1868 in Moravia which became part of Czechoslovakia after WWI. His main interest was in music which his parents considered frivolous so they sent him to cobbler school in Vienna, This was during the era of Strauss waltzes. He missed several classes to attend concerts of Johann Strauss in the park. By then at least two of his four brothers had left for America so young Joseph, only 16 years old stowed away on a steamer headed for America and the romanticized life of a rugged cowboy. He fell asleep while the train was side-tracked and disconnected in Bryan and woke up stranded and penniless. Within a few days he had a part time job as a shoemaker in Bryan and another job as a shoemaker and bugler working in his dorm room at Texas A&M College. His interest and talent as a musician attracted other musician to gather in his room. After a few months he approached the military college with the idea of a military band which was established and funded by the Texas State Guard and all 12 members wore the Texas Guard uniform. Joseph was the first Aggie band master and served as band master intermittently for many years. The tall Aggie Boot, the way it looks now, was not a part of the A&M cadet uniform until the late 20’s and was fashioned after the US Cavalry “Rough Riders” boots. These boots are not marked for size. Based off of the measurements taken I find these to be a size 12.5 M. Insole measurement heel to toe: 11 1/2. Outsole measurements heel to toe: 12. Outsole measurements width across sole: 4 1/8. Shaft height from the top back of boot to bottom sole measures: 17.5. Circumference of top of boot around measures: 15. I do not know the history of these boots. Please refer to the photos provided for accurate condition. Actual item pictured, item shown is what you will receive.
