It looks like April 27, 1962, was a windy day at the Plaza of the States as Texas Governor Price Daniel (in hat) and Welcome Chairman Leo Weisfield do their best to fold the Texas State Flag following the honoring of Texas at the Plaza. Flags of all 50 states flew from poles above plaques honoring the state. A copy of the plaque is shown below.
