The auditorium was named after James Stephen Hogg, the first native governor of Texas.
Throughout the decades, Hogg has served as a hub for different aspects of the UT campus life. When it opened its doors in 1933, the inaugural event was a lecture by poet Robert Frost. In the 1950s, it was the main stage for UT's drama department and throughout time it continued to serve as a venue for lectures, debates, and traveling plays, serving the campus as well as the community. After a dormant phase when Hogg was used for lectures, exams, and film screenings, it reopened as a performing arts venue in 1997. Today, Hogg maintains many of its original architectural features that make the space a historical gem on the 40 Acres.
