Biographical Note

Kenyon Houchins was born in Hallettsville, Texas, on July 31, 1915. He graduated from South Texas School of Law in 1939. In the early 1950’s, Houchins began his career as a legal attorney in Houston with lawyer Percy Foreman, at 1116 Capital Avenue. By 1955, he had moved his services to 1207 Welch Avenue, and by the 1960’s began a longstanding partnership with Lonalee H. Tasker. Houchins and Tasker remained a well-known and respected law firm through the 1970’s. Houchins on many occasions also served as a precinct judge, and was actively involved in business ventures such as The Lanark Corporation and the Texas Oaklawn Corporation in the 1950’s, and Van’s Food Products in the 1970’s. Kenyon Houchins died on June 2, 1983.

Scope and Contents

The bulk of this collection consists of various legal documents and correspondence handled by, or personally involving, attorney Kenyon Houchins. Most of the material dates from the late 1940’s through the 1970’s. Houchins’ legal work covers a variety of subjects, including property disputes, domestic affairs, corporate entanglements, shippers’ union disputes, the Texas juvenile system, drug possession, assault, and murder charges. More specifically, and perhaps most useful, are documents regarding the International Organization of Masters, Mates, and Pilots Shipping Union, the trial and execution of John Stickney, the State Youth Development Council for “delinquents," various oil pipeline companies and local businesses, and various documents regarding Kenyon Houchins’ own business interests and associates.

Arrangement

Material in the Kenyon Houchins Collection is in loose chronological order. Boxes 1, 2 and 3 cover the late 1940’s through the 1950’s; Boxes 4 and 5 include cases from the 1960’s; and Box 6 spans the 1970’s. Within this time-line framework, materials are organized by the specific court cases of which they are a part, and within these specific cases, the different types of documents are further organized. Thus, court documents and correspondence—the two main types of material in this collection—are given their own separate folders within each specific case file. Box 7 is unique in relation to the rest of this collection. It is a dramatic account of the trial and execution of Howard Stickney in 1962, written by Robert Allen Carpenter.
