Giles McCrary was an oilman, a rancher, an art collector and a world traveler. On his treks across the globe he bought plenty of souvenirs, many of which now grace the OS Museum in Post.
McCrary, who died in 2011, also was a WW II Army veteran. From 1969 until 1991, he served as mayor of Post, where residents honored him and Citizen of the year in 1985.
Known for his generosity and philanthropy, McCrary often paid tuition, room and board and books for several West Texans who wanted to attend Texas Tech.
