The Crutchfield Suite

BRACKENRIDGE FIELD LABORATORY 
THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN  

"The Crutchfield Suite" 
For 45 years (Fall 1967 - Fall 2012) 
Resident Manager John Crutchfield and Grace Crutchfield 
lived in this small apartment while John cared for the facilities, 
grounds, wildlife and academic life of Brackenridge Field Laboratory. 
John and Grace were a constant force caring for both the biota and 
especially University of Texas students who experienced nature first 
hand at BFL. If you are reading this plaque, it is because BFL is still here. 
We can thank the dedication of the Crutchfields for helping secure this 
wonderful oasis of urban biodiversity for the future faculty and students 
of UT Austin and for all who care for the ecology of planet earth.
