Texas State Library and Archives Commission:

An Inventory of Records at the Texas State Archives, 1857-1979, undated



Overview

Creator: Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Title: Records
Dates: 1857-1979, undated
Abstract: Records of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission include minutes, correspondence, reports, printed materials, accession books, catalogs, financial materials, photographs, blueprints, and a phonograph record. Dates covered are 1857-1979, undated. The Library was under the administration of other agencies until the establishment of the Library and Historical Commission in 1909. Early records are scant and consist of a few catalogs of books and government documents, lists of archives and historical manuscripts and artifacts, book orders, and some notes regarding expenditures. In 1909, the Library set up its own files. The records of three State Librarians -- Klaerner, West, and Rogan, 1915-1927 -- are minimal. Even with these gaps, the records of the Texas State Library do document its history and its functions through evolving policy and procedures, increasing complexity of administration and duties, and its relations with state government and the public. The records also show the growth of libraries and state government in general.

Agency History

The Texas State Library began as the National Library of Texas. In 1839, under President Mirabeau B. Lamar, the Third Congress appropriated $10,000 for books to be housed in the office of the Secretary of State. The first purchase of this appropriation was $300 paid to Ashbel Smith for his Edinburgh Encyclopedia.

During the remainder of the Republic period and until after the Civil War, an occasional appropriation was made for book purchases and document exchanges. Then, in 1866, the office of State Librarian was created at $1,000 a year. Robert Josselyn was appointed Librarian and catalogued the 5,427 books in the Library before being removed from office, along with the rest of the state government's officers, as an impediment to Reconstruction. The Library remained under the Secretary of State until 1876 when it was transferred to the new Department of Insurance, Statistics, and History. One of the duties of the State Library in its new setting was to serve as a depository for historical materials.

In 1881, the Capitol burned and the Library's 8,000 volumes were lost. Since most of the state's records were still in the custody of the creating agencies or stored in vaults, the loss of archival material was not great.

The Library began to move forward again in 1891 when the 22nd Legislature appropriated $1,500 for a Historical Clerk and $360 for a Librarian and Office Assistant. Governor James Hogg appointed Cadwell W. Raines as Historical Clerk. He began his duties May 5, 1891 and actively collected historical materials throughout the state. Although appropriations were reduced each biennium, the State Library had 25,000 volumes in 1901.

The modern history of the Texas State Library begins with the creation of the Texas Library and Historical Commission in 1909 by the 31st Legislature. The Commission was charged with the control and administration of the State Library whose functions would include historical work, legislative reference, and encouragement of library development in Texas. E. W. Winkler was appointed State Librarian at the Commission's first meeting, March 29, 1909.

Gradually, all the Commission's mandates have been addressed. Historical work began with Raines in 1891. Legislative reference formally got under way in 1910 with the appointment of a Legislative Reference Librarian. In 1916, the Library offered twelve different traveling libraries to communities in Texas to concretely demonstrate the value of libraries. In 1917, an effective county library law was passed; and, in 1920, the first county library was established. In 1927, the position of Library Organizer was created by the Legislature. Books for the blind were available through the Library in 1919.

An estimate of the Library's holdings in 1931 specifies 88,800 bound volumes, 85,000 pamphlets, and 85,000 manuscripts. The Depression was a time of salary reductions, little book buying, and curtailed extension activity.

Following World War II, the State Library entered a period of expansion to meet the increasing demands placed on it by the public and by state government. The Library responded with greatly increased budget requests for new programs to meet these needs.

In 1956, the Archives Division was forced by the crowded conditions in the Capitol Complex to move to a quonset hut at Camp Hubbard. The Library and its friends had long been seeking a separate and appropriate building for the Archives and Library, and the move to the quonset hut was a rallying point. Funds were appropriated in 1957 and the Library moved to the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building in 1961.

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission is governed by the Library and Archives Commission (Vernon's Ann. Civ. St., Article 5434 (1925, originally created in 1909 as the Texas State Library and Historical Commission)). Commission members are appointed by the Governor, with concurrence of the Senate, to six-year overlapping terms. The Commission appoints the State Librarian and Director who serves as the executive officer of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission as well as the executive and administrative officer of the agency. Duties of the State Librarian and Director are to record the proceedings of the Commission and keep account of its financial transactions; approve expenditures made in connection with the State Library; have charge of the State Library and materials contained therein; demand and collect records of state agencies and officials not connected to their current duties; endeavor to collect manuscript records in the hands of private individuals; procure archives of the state which have been removed, including those found in Mexico and other states; preserve historical relics and memorabilia which come into possession of the State Library; give proper attention to the care and availability of the archives in custody of the State Library; make a biennial report to the Governor; and ascertain the condition of all public libraries in the state and report the results to the Commission. Additionally, he is authorized by law to transfer, dispose, or otherwise destroy records in his custody which have no permanent value.

The State Librarian and Director oversees the operations of the divisions in the State Library through which his duties and responsibilities are carried out. Divisions as of 1984 were Administration (includes offices of the State Librarian, Assistant State Librarian, and publications), Administrative Services (includes personnel, accounting, building services, purchasing, and a print shop), Archives (administers the permanently valuable official records of the state and related historical materials), Data Processing (provides computer operations and assistance to the divisions), Blind and Physically Handicapped (provides materials for blind and disabled patrons), Information Services (includes genealogy, reference, U.S. and Texas documents programs, and technical services), Library Development (works with public libraries to secure funding, etc.), Local Records (operates a depository program for county records), and Records Management (provides records management assistance to state agencies and ensures records are sent to the Archives for permanent storage or are disposed of due to a non-permanent value).

By 1995, the divisions had been condensed into Administrative Services, Automated Information Systems, the Talking Book Program (providing services to all disabled Texans), Archives and Information Services (combining the majority of the old programs of the Archives and the Information Services and managing Regional Historical Resource Depositories), Technical Services (responsible for acquisitions, cataloging, processing and binding of library materials), Statewide Library Development (to promote and improve Texas libraries), and State and Local Records Management. Since 1995, the Executive Office has been the unit incorporating the Public Information Office and the offices of the Assistant Librarian and the Director and Librarian.

The State Librarian through the years has served on various state boards and committees, sometimes appointed, sometimes as an ex-officio member, such as the Board of Library Examiners and the Sesquicentennial Commission; and s/he has been involved with legislation affecting public libraries in Texas, including the Library Systems Act and the Library Services and Construction Act. S/He has also worked to secure grant funding from several sources for public libraries and various programs within the State Library, such as the Blind and Physically Handicapped program. S/He has also served in varying capacities (committees, boards, etc.) with a number of library/historical groups, including the Texas Library Association, the Texas State Historical Association, the Society of American Archivists, and others. The Librarian also makes presentations to groups such as these, to smaller organizations (such as county-wide groups), and to public libraries.

Correspondence and subject files, 1909-1976,
5.4 linear ft.

These records are correspondence subject files of the State Library, including correspondence, reports, budget materials, and inventories. The files in this series date from 1909, the creation of the Texas Library and Historical Commission, to 1976. The records of some of the earlier Librarians (Klaerner, West, Rogan) are almost nonexistent. The same gap appears in the Texas Library and Historical Commission subseries Correspondence. Files include records of the internal operations of the Library (e.g., Archives Division, Blind Service, Staff Memos); relations with the Commission (Biennial Report, Budget); dealings with the Texas Legislature, individual lawmakers, and other state agencies (Budget, Legislative Files, Board of Control); relations with libraries and librarians throughout the state and various lay groups supporting libraries; and dealings with regional and national library and other professional groups (American Library Association, American Historical Association, Society of American Archivists, National Association of State Libraries).
The files of the Texas State Library and Historical Commission were originally arranged in vaguely chronological and/or alphabetical groups with only occasional subject folders. To make the materials accessible for research, a subject arrangement was imposed.
Because of the original arrangement of these records, materials regarding some subjects are scattered. The researcher is cautioned to check every folder that is in any way related to the topic under investigation. For example, material related to the Library's budget request may be found with the Texas Library and Historical Commission series, and in this series in folders labeled Budget, Legislative Files, and Deficiency Applications.
Arrangement
These records are arranged alphabetically by folder title and then chronologically.

Preferred Citation
(Identify the item and cite the subseries), Special correspondence and subject files, Records, Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Archives and Information Services Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Extension Division, 1905-1960,
2.3 linear ft.
Records in this series include correspondence, applications, subject files, circulation records of traveling libraries, and travel expense accounts, dating 1905-1960. Correspondence in these records may be between the county librarians and the State Librarian or Extension Director; between the Division and county residents interested in organizing a library or seeking advice on running a library; between the State Librarian and/or Extension Director and county librarians, community residents, friends groups, legislators, and librarians.The function of the Extension Division was to aid and encourage the development of libraries in Texas. The name of the Division changed many times, but since Extension was used longest during the period covered by the files, it is used here. The mandate of the Extension Division has always been one of the central goals of the Texas State Library under the Texas Library and Historical Commission, however the Division experienced many different levels of support. The files reflect this and also the interest in library development in Texas by persons outside the Library or Commission. A series of letters of interest in the subject files are the letters re: Service to Negroes. See also Oversize, Official County Library Sign of Texas, [before 1925].
Organization
The records of the Extension Division were filed four different ways; that system has been maintained in the following series:
County libraries, 1914-1952 (bulk 1928-1946), 1.0 linear ft.
Chronological file, 1905-1960 (bulk 1927-1945), 0.4 linear ft.
Subject files, 1928-1953, 0.6 linear ft.
Logs, 1916-1939, undated, 0.2 linear foot
County libraries, 1914-1952 (bulk 1928-1946),
1.0 linear ft.
The records are correspondence between county librarians and the State Librarian or the Extension Director, mostly the former; correspondence with county residents interested in organizing a library or seeking advice on running a library; applications, letters of inquiry, etc., regarding positions as county librarians. The records date from 1914 to 1952, the bulk dating from 1928 to 1946. A few city libraries are included in these files. See also Chronological File.
Arrangement
These records are arranged alphabetically by county and then chronologically.

Book orders, catalogs, accession books, 1857-1956,
63 volumes

These records consist of book orders, catalogs, and accession lists and volumes of State Library materials, dating 1857-1957. Among the accession materials are registers of historical documents, manuscripts, and artifacts belonging to the state, dating 1877-1926. The oldest record of the Texas State Library is a volume in this series that dates from 1857 and lists book orders for the Library. As is frequently the case with volumes, they are used for more than one type of record. The early volumes of the Texas State Library are no exception and, therefore, each of these will be separately described.

Photos and lantern slides, 1928-ca. 1961,
146 photos and 81 slides

Only a few of the photos in the Texas State Library records were found with related papers. These are listed first in the finding aid. The rest of the photos were either loose or in one box. The county library photos were probably solicited by the Extension Director. Since most of the lantern slides relate to county libraries and their development, it is assumed that they were used as a show to encourage county library development in Texas in the early 1930s. Dates of these images are 1928 - c. 1961.
