Born at the north gate of Randolph Field, University City is located primarily in Bexar County with some of its territory entering Guadalupe County. Its location across the main gate of Randolph Air Force Base gave the town its name which denotes the universal importance of the air base. The main street of the area, Pat Booker Road was built in 1935 and named after Francis P. “Pat” Booker, a pilot who was killed in an airplane crash at Maxwell Field, Alabama. The catalyst that fueled Universal City’s tremendous growth was when Headquarters, Air Training Command moved from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, to Randolph in 1957.
