Henry Cisneros was elected as mayor of San Antonio on April 4, 1981, the first Hispanic mayor since Texas joined the US. He earned a BA from Texas A&M University, an MA from Harvard University, and a Ph D in public administration from George Washington University. In 1975, he was selected as a White House Fellow. President Bill Clinton appointed him to the Cabinet level post of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 1993. Cisneros was later tarnished by a scandal involving payments to his mistress. In 1997, Cisneros was named to lead Univision Communications, a leading Spanish language media company.
