Bauerle Road, formerly James Bauerle Road[1] and one of the original roads on campus,[2] is the north-south artery on the eastern half of the Main Campus that almost reaches Peace Boulevard. It meets with UTSA Boulevard to form one of the south entrances to campus, meeting Ford Road and serving to divide Key Drive from East Campus Drive. It then reaches the Main Building and the Baurle Road Garage.[3]


James E. Bauerle, D.D.S. (probably pronounced similar to "barley"[4]) was elected to the UT System Board of Regents by Governor Preston Smith for the term January 1973 to January 1979.[5] Bauerle was born in Travis County but grew up near Johnson City, getting his undergraduate degree at UT Austin and his graduate dental degrees in St. Louis and Pittsburgh. He became a fellow of the American College of Dentists and of the International College of Dentists in 1957 and 1958, respectively. He served as president of the San Antonio District Dental Society 1959-1960 and of the Texas Dental Association, 1967-1968. Curiously enough, he was a Scottish Rite Mason and a Knight Templar, and in 1974 he also got an Honorary Doctor of Law degree from UTSA which has never had a law school.[6]
