Texas Swedish Pioneers Association Records
An Inventory to the Collection
The Texas Swedish Pioneers Association (TSPA) is an organization that celebrates and documents Swedish immigration to Texas. One of its primary activities is sponsoring an annual reunion of Swedish Texans. It held its first reunion in 1917 on the 50th anniversary of the first 100 immigrants from Barkeryd, Sweden to Texas. They also maintain a website called Swedes in Texas at www.swedesintexas.com.
The bulk of this collection consists of 2 scrapbooks. One scrapbook was a gift from the Swedish community of Solberga for the 1963 reunion. The other scrapbook consists of photographs of the Nassjo, Sweden area.
The remainder of the collection consists of programs and gifts from various TSPA reunions.
