Agency History

The Texas State Preservation Board was created in 1983 by Senate Bill 147, 68th Legislature, Regular Session. The Board is composed of the Governor, who acts as chair, the Lieutenant Governor, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Additionally, the Governor appoints one member, and the Lieutenant Governor and Speaker each appoint one member from their respective chambers. The appointed members serve two-year terms.

The enabling legislation creating the Preservation Board also created a Permanent Advisory Committee to assist the Board. It was composed of the Executive Director of the Historical Commission, Chairman of the Antiquities Committee, Director of the Library and Archives Commission, Director of the Commission on the Arts, and three citizens, one each appointed by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Speaker of the House. The Committee assisted in the development of the annual budget and work plan, the master plan, and collection policy and furnishings plan, and made recommendations concerning Board approval of these documents. This committee was abolished in 1995 by Senate Bill 1428, 74th Legislature, Regular Session.

The functions of the State Preservation Board are to preserve, maintain, and restore the building, contents, and grounds of the state Capitol, the Capitol extension, and the 1857 General Land Office, and convey their historical significance to visitors. The Architect of the Capitol develops and implements a master plan of at least twenty years projection for the maintenance, preservation, restoration, and modification of the buildings and their grounds. Tthe Curator of the Capitol develops and maintains an inventory of the buildings and their contents, develops a collection policy regarding the historical items, makes recommendations on conservation needs, and coordinates restoration of historical furnishings.

Funds for the building and restoration projects have come from private donations and from the state. The Legislature appropriated $187.6 million in 1989 to undertake the restoration of the General Land Office Building and the Capitol, and build an underground four-level extension to the Capitol. The Capitol extension and restoration of the Capitol's exterior were completed in 1993. Interior work on the Capitol was completed in 1995. Work on the improvements and changes to the Capitol grounds was completed in 1997. The restored General Land Office Building now houses the Capitol Visitors Center and the Texas History Gallery. It opened to the public in the spring of 1994.

The projects initially undertaken by the Board have been completed--restoration of the Capitol and contents, building the Capitol extension, restoration of the General Land Office building and contents, and improvements and changes to the Capitol grounds. The agency's responsibilities now include curatorial and historic preservation maintenance programs related to the buildings, their contents, and grounds; and the development and implementation of educational programs, including operation of the Capitol Visitors Center and the Texas History Gallery. In 1997 the 75th Legislature (House Bill 1107, Regular Session) charged the agency with overseeing the planning and construction of the Texas State History Museum, which opened in 2001. The museum is operated by the Preservation Board.

The agency is headed by an executive director and consists of six divisions: Administrative, Finance, Design, Curatorial, Construction, and Visitors Center staff. Vernon's Ann. Civ. St., Article 443.

Scope and Contents of the Records

Types of records present include minutes, agenda, correspondence, memoranda, reports, architectural project manuals, master plans, artifact inventories, exhibit files, publications, press releases, clippings, photographs, negatives, videocassettes, contracts, invoices, and purchase vouchers. Dates covered are 1836-2003 (bulk 1985-2000). These records document activities of the Texas State Preservation Board. Correspondents include the Architect of the Capitol, State Preservation Board staff, other state agencies, state officials, legislators, private companies, consultants, architects, contractors, and the general public. Topics include the restoration of the old General Land Office Building and the Capitol, acquisition of historical artifacts and furnishings for the Capitol, building the underground Capitol extension, making improvements to the Capitol grounds, the Goddess of Liberty, opening and operating the Capitol Visitors Center, special events held at the Capitol, exhibits held in the Capitol Visitors Center, and building the Texas State History Museum.

Included in the records are the meeting files of the Permanent Advisory Committee, a committee that assisted the State Preservation Board in the development of the annual budget and work plan, the master plan, and the collection policy and furnishings plan. The architectural project manuals and master plans, along with the minutes of the Board and the two correspondence series provide some documentation on the restoration of the Capitol, the Capitol grounds, and the General Land Office Building. The bulk of the building project files are still at the State Preservation Board. Very little material is present concerning the construction of the Texas State History Museum. Several series of records concern the Capitol Visitors Center, such as the exhibit files documenting displays on Barbara Jordan and O. Henry. Clippings files document all activities of the State Preservation Board, but primarily cover the construction and restoration projects of the Preservation Board.

Texas Capitol, Preservation and Extension. Master Plan and Historic Structure Report was prepared by the firm of 3D/International and Ford, Powell & Carson, December 19, 1989 for the Texas State Preservation Board. The plan contains a report on the history of the Capitol, its construction, modifications over the years, and conditions, detailing architectural and functional inadequacies. It discusses needs and proposes a plan for the preservation of the Capitol and an underground expansion, including suggested construction phasings and projected costs. The master plan also includes design concepts for the Capitol Complex, focusing on the development of the area north of 15th Street and up to Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The master plan is illustrated with drawings of the Capitol, grounds, and proposed plans for the Capitol Complex area. Floor plans of the Capitol, and of offices and other areas in both the Capitol and the extension are also included. The master plan is accompanied by a four-volume set of appendices, containing a copy of the outline of the original contract and specifications for the Capitol, building surveys reports for several years, a survey of conditions in rooms and other areas in the Capitol, and several reports undertaken as part of the pre-construction process. These latter reports include a traffic and parking study and the results of an archaeological investigation of the area to be excavated for the underground extension.
The master plan consists of five volumes. The Archives holds two sets of the plan in the Texana book collection, call number 725.11028/ T413T. Copies of the master plan are also on file in the Texas Documents Collection of the Library and Archives Commission.

Architect of the Capitol files, 1985-1991,
2.12 cubic ft.

These are incoming and outgoing letters and memos with attachments from the office of the Architect of the Capitol of the Texas State Preservation Board. Attachments include clippings, brochures, press releases, proposals, contracts, agreements, drawings, reports, policies, bills, and pamphlets. Records date from January 1985 to December 1987, and October 1988 to May 1991. The files cover the period Roy Graham served as Architect, January 1985-January 1988, and most of the period Allen McCree served as Architect, August 1988-May 1991. Most outgoing letters and memos were signed by the Architect. Other staff sending out mail through the Office of the Architect include the Curator, Historian, staff architects, and administrative assistants. Correspondents include members of the Preservation Board, legislators, state officials and agencies, private consultants, private companies, architects, antique dealers, art galleries, historians, conservators, manufacturers of historical reproductions, contractors, and the general public. Roy Graham's files consist largely of outgoing letters and memos. Graham's files contain alphabetical lists of correspondents. Such lists are not present in McCree's files.
Topics discussed include restoration in the Capitol of the Senate and House chambers, the Lieutenant Governor's reception room, and the Governor's public reception room. The inspection, removal, recasting, and replacement of the Goddess of Liberty generated a considerable body of correspondence. Also discussed in great detail are the condition and refurbishment of the Capitol grounds including the removal and replanting of all of the elm trees along the sidewalk of the Capitol's southern approach, the Grand Allee. Some correspondence is also present concerning historical research on the Capitol and the preservation of the contents of the buildings. Internal administrative matters discussed include budgets, collecting policies, consultant contracts, fundraising, and trip reports. Also present are acknowledgments, responses to requests for information about the Capitol or the projects, invitations to speak, and similar materials. Most routine materials were removed prior to transfer to the Archives.
Administrative correspondence concerning most of these same topics can be found in the series, Administrative correspondence. The most complete set of correspondence documenting the restoration/construction projects can be found in the working project files at the State Preservation Board, Capitol preservation and extension project files, General Land Office Building restoration project files, and Grounds project files. Correspondence concerning the planning and construction of the new Texas State History Museum can be found in the working project files at the Board, series title unknown.
Arrangement
The records are arranged by architect. Roy Graham's files are grouped in multi-month increments, anywhere between two to five months per set, with an alphabetical list of correspondents preceding each increment. His files are arranged chronologically by year, then roughly in reverse chronological order within each set, based on the date of the outgoing letter or memo. Allen McCree's files are arranged in reverse chronological order by the date of the outgoing letter or memo. Attachments present in both sets of architect's files may predate the outgoing letters by days, months, or possibly a year or two.

Capitol Historical Artifact collection, 1989-1994,
2.28 cubic ft.

This series contains computer printouts listing the artifacts acquired by the Curator of the Capitol for use in the restoration of the Capitol, photographs, and the Status of Capitol Collections annual reports. Dates covered are 1989-1994. As part of the Capitol restoration project, the Texas State Preservation Board attempted to locate historical artifacts (furniture, furnishings, etc.) used in the Capitol during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Board catalogued artifacts housed in the Capitol, and acquired other artifacts that had left the Capitol over the years, usually [through donation or purchase] from other state agencies, private individuals, or businesses, such as antique dealers. As they acquired these items, the Board created a database of the artifacts, listing the item, assigning it an inventory number and a photo inventory number, and giving its location, a brief description, date, and the dimensions. The inventory includes some items dated later than the early 20th century, primarily things such as portraits or plaques.
Historical artifacts listed in the inventory include furniture (tables, chairs, bookcases, wardrobes, vanities, benches, sofas, mirrors, dressers, chests, rostrums, etc.), lamps, wall and light fixtures (sconces, chandeliers, etc.), office-type equipment (file cabinets, staplers, wastebaskets, etc.), silver, dishes, dinnerware, paintings, portraits, photographic composites of each legislature, sculptures, busts, and monuments.
Many of the items listed in the computer printouts have accompanying photographs. Dates of the computer printouts are 1991-1994. The curator maintains the Capitol Historical Artifact Collection. During 1991-1992, the curator sent quarterly updates of the database printout and accompanying photographs of items for deposit in the Archives and Information Services Division. An updated printout of the entire database was received in February 1994, also containing photographs for 1993-1994. The latter database replaced the previous set of computer printouts. The photographs number approximately 1700 images and are filed in seven large notebooks.
Also included in this series are the Status of Capitol Collections annual reports, dating 1989-1993. The reports contain mainly summary information on the documentation and condition of the collection. Later reports also include information on the transfer of historical items to the Capitol, the capitol furnishing project, photodocumentation of the capitol preservation and extension project, and personnel issues. All reports include the text of the Collection Policy and the Collections Manual.

Clippings, 1888, 1910, 1931, 1935, 1938, 1956, 1963, 1983-2003 (bulk 1985-1995),
3.05 cubic ft.

This series contains photocopies of newspaper clippings concerning the activities of the Texas State Preservation Board dating 1888, 1910, 1931, 1935, 1938, 1956, 1963, and 1983-2003, with the bulk dating 1985-1995. The clippings document all aspects of the Board's functions, but they primarily concern events and developments at the state capitol complex. Prominent in the series are articles on the restoration of the state capitol (1985-1995). This material documents the selection of architects, restoration planning, and replacement of the Goddess of Liberty statute on the capitol dome, fund raising and legislative appropriations, and the search for period furnishings. The series includes related articles on the renovation of the capitol grounds (1985-1997), the construction of the underground extension of the capitol (1988-1993), the restoration of the General Land Office Building (1989-1994), and creation of the Capitol Visitors Center in the GLO Building. Other topics covered in the clippings include the Capitol's centennial (1988), the acquisition of Pease Mansion (Woodlawn) by the state of Texas (1997-1999), the construction of the Texas State History Museum (1997-2000), the placement of monuments on the Capitol grounds (1986, 1990-2003), events held on the Capitol grounds or in the Capitol (1988-2003), security at the Capitol after the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacks (2001-2003), possible sale of the Pease Mansion (Woodlawn) (2001-2002), controversy over keeping the Ten Commandments Monument on the Capitol grounds (2002-2003), firing of the State Preservation Board director (2003), and early articles about the Capitol (pre 1980s).
The Board collects clippings from various newspapers. Many of these articles are variations of single articles distributed by news services and uniquely edited by individual newspapers. Articles on a particular subject may span several days.
Arrangement
These records are arranged in chronological order. The oversize clippings are filed in separate boxes.
