Turns out the facility is named after Morton Myerson, former president of Electronic Data Systems. In 1984, Myerson, who chaired the concert hall committee, gathered up the nerve to ask for a $10 million donation to build the center from EDS’s founder, and later U.S. presidential candidate, Ross Perot.

Perot said yes under one condition: he did not want naming rights for himself and insisted the building be named for Meyerson.

Meyerson says he was embarrassed and resisted but finally agreed because Perot made it a condition for his donation.

The PAC is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a parade and tours Sept. 13, followed by free concerts.
