Historical Note

The Battle of Flowers Association originated with an 1891 parade held to commemorate the April 21 anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto and to mark President Benjamin Harrison's visit to San Antonio, the first presidential visit to the city. Organized by a group of San Antonio women, the success of the first Battle of Flowers parade led to plans for an annual celebration. Escalating responsibilities led to participation by other organizations, including men's groups, and from 1901 to 1908 male presidents frequently led the Battle of Flowers. In 1909, the delegation of Fiesta activities was formalized, and the Battle of Flowers organization became an exclusively female group, responsible for the parade and other selected events. In 1914, the Battle of Flowers Association became a state-chartered organization.

In addition to the parade, the Association has sponsored a number of other activities over its history. A poetry contest in 1924 evolved into the Oratorical Contest in 1926. The participation of school bands led to another continuing event, the Band Festival, which began as a competition and now serves as a showcase for high school and college bands. The other major Fiesta event for the Association is the annual luncheon. Other events sponsored by the organization have been discontinued, including an annual fete or pageant, which took place from about 1910 to 1955.

As the responsibilities of the Battle of Flowers Association have grown, so has its organizational system. Although its basic structure has remained fairly simple, the duties of its officers, committees, and advisory boards have grown more specialized over the years. Heading the organization are a number of elected officers, including the President. Vice-presidents (currently seven) are responsible for specific events, activities, or functions, and the treasurer is responsible for routine financial transactions. Recording and corresponding secretaries are also elected.

The policy level of the Association includes a number of components, including the Board of Directors, which plans and administers all activities; an Executive Board, which reviews proposals and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors; and the Former Presidents Advisory Council, which makes recommendations to the Executive Board.

Officers of the Association have broad areas of responsibility, with committees given more specific charges. The complexity of some activities requires a full committee, while other positions are managed by a chairman and assistant, or a chairman acting as a committee of one. In the early years of the organization, committees were not distinguished from one another in any fashion; since about 1969, committees have been loosely grouped, in sometimes overlapping categories. These groupings serve primarily to coordinate and track the activities of related committees and generally do not imply hierarchical relationships.

Scope and Content Note

Produced in connection with its annual activities during Fiesta San Antonio, the Battle of Flowers Association Records consist of minutes, rosters, yearbooks, reports, correspondence, financial documents, printed material, drawings, photographs, motion picture film, videotape, audio tape, and artifacts generated and gathered by its elected officials and various committee chairmen. The bulk of the records date from 1909 and later, the depth of the documentation becoming significantly greater beginning about 1950.

The records are detailed in their documentation of the practical aspects of organizing Fiesta San Antonio events, particularly the Battle of Flowers parade. Information on policy and decision-making is primarily found in minutes of meetings. Annual reports from each officer and committee chairman provide much of the detail. The extent of the reports depends on the compiler and on the complexity of her task, but most include a diary noting all Association-related activities throughout the year, a summary of events, comments, and recommendations for future events. Details of financial activities are found in ledgers maintained from 1909 to 1965. More general financial information is found in annual audits and monthly and annual treasurer's reports. Contact with individuals and organizations outside of the Battle of Flowers Association is generally handled by the president, and documentation is usually found in the notebooks maintained by the president. However, other officers and committee chairmen also have dealings outside the organization, and correspondence and other documents can be found with those records, often attached to reports.

Each officer and committee chairman is required to produce several copies of their reports. As the Battle of Flowers Association does not maintain a central office, records have usually been kept by each officer and committee chairman and passed to her successor at the end of her term, with older records stored at the Association's warehouse. Most of these records have been kept in loose-leaf notebooks. Material has been removed from these notebooks during processing, but the order has been maintained. Original file titles have been used wherever possible. In the initial processing of the records, two copies were retained, one in the chronological arrangement of all reports in the General Records series and one as part of the records of the particular officer or committee chair. This practice was discontinued in 1998 and the reports were placed in the officers and committees series. Reports frequently include numerous attachments and additions, such as correspondence, financial documents, printed material, clippings, and photographs.

Duplicate documents and routine financial documents, such as bills and receipts, cancelled checks, and bank statements, have been removed and returned to the organization.

Organization of Collection

This collection is organized into eleven series.
The arrangement of the records was created based on the organizational structure of the Battle of Flowers Association as outlined in the Association's yearbook. If the status of a position has changed from that of an elected officer to appointed committee chairman, all records are together according to the committee's current place within the organization. Committees that have been discontinued are placed in a series according to their position at the time of discontinuance. Committees discontinued prior to the development of the current organizational system have been placed in the Other Committees series. All records of committees that have changed names are under the current name, with the change noted in the inventory.
In most cases, items and folders within the series, subseries, and sub-subseries are placed in chronological order. This is usually based on the working year of the Battle of Flowers Association, which ends with the annual meeting in May.

Detailed Description of the Collection

 

Series 1: General records, 1895-2011

This series consists of records pertaining to the organization as a whole and material not associated with a particular officer or committee chair. Subseries consist of document types and items or folders are usually arranged chronologically. Some of the significant records found here are minutes, which are nearly complete from 1922; yearbooks dating from 1949 to 1950; audit reports; lists of parade entries from 1946; television scripts for the parade, primarily from 1980s and later; copies of prize-winning speeches delivered at the Oratorical Contest; programs from Battle of Flowers and other Fiesta events; and other printed material. Books, periodicals, and newspaper clippings gathered by the organization relate to Fiesta and to San Antonio in general (some clippings gathered by committee chairs are included with reports or files in committee records). Scattered design drawings of parade floats, most of the Court section of the parade, are included. Photographs are of the parade, other Association activities, and individuals. Films of the parade were usually professionally produced; later, films were replaced by videotapes of television broadcasts of the parade.
This series also holds annual reports from officers and committee chairs, dating from 1936, arranged chronologically, with another copy of each report filed under the officer or committee chair who created it. Beginning in 1998-1999, copies of the reports were no longer filed in this series.

Series 2: Officers, 1909-2011

This series is organized into subseries by individual elected positions, according to the current structure of elected officials, and sub-subseries by document type. Included under each officer is a copy of all available annual reports, which have been removed from the notebooks used by the organization. The type and extent of material associated with each officer varies widely. Records of the president usually include additional material such as correspondence and records related to the organization’s events. The headings used by individual presidents have been maintained.
The Vice President (Parade) records include subject files or notebooks associated with the production of the annual parade, beginning in the 1960s. The extent and organization of these files varies. Files have also been maintained by the Vice President (Band Festival), though the only extensive files date from the early 1950s. Records of the Treasurer include ledgers which detail financial activities from 1909-1969.

Series 3: Standing committees, 1945-

This series is organized into subseries by committee. Some of these designated committees, the Feature Bands committee and Band Festival Tickets committee, are noted in the inventory, but their records have been placed in the Band Festival Committees series, while the Parade Entries committee is included in the Parade, administrative committees series. Records in this series consist primarily of reports, with some scattered general documents of various types. Standing committees are responsible for specific administrative functions, particularly publicity and parade tickets. Changes to a committee’s name or function are noted in the inventory.
