Provenance

This collection was created through a cooperative effort with the Dallas County Historical Commission. The Texas/Dallas History and Archives Division of the Dallas Public Library began photocopying the Commissions files in 1986. In September 1987, the first phase was completed. Files that were missed and those that are continuing to be added are being copied as the second phase of this project continues. This will be a perpetual process over the years as other markers are designated.
