Houston Harte (born January 12, 1893 in Missouri; died March 1972 in San Angelo, Texas) founded, with Bernard Hanks, a regional chain of newspapers which eventually became the media company Harte-Hanks. His son was the newspaper executive, journalist, philanthropist, and conservationist Edward H. Harte.
He also created the book, "In Our Image" along with Time illustrator, Guy Rowe, a collection of Bible stories published in 1949 by Oxford University Press. Together they won a Christopher Award.
Harte was instrumental in preserving historic Fort Concho in San Angelo. He also donated substantially to Angelo State University.
Harte was also a confidant of U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson. His association with Johnson led him to end his longstanding friendship with a leading Johnson critic, the historian J. Evetts Haley.
