Agency History

A good neighbor policy was first established in Texas in 1943. The 48th Legislature passed House Concurrent Resolution 105, which called for equal treatment of Mexicans and other Latin Americans residing in or visiting the state. Based on this resolution, in June of that year Governor Coke Stevenson issued a proclamation establishing a good neighbor policy between Texas and Mexico, emphasizing equal treatment for Latin Americans in Texas. Following this move, the state was eligible for federal funding to put such a policy into effect. Later that same year, the Governor appointed the first Good Neighbor Commission, an unofficial seven-member commission, to carry out the good neighbor policy--generally correcting the undesirable conditions existing for individuals of Latin American descent in the state. In 1945 the 49th Legislature passed House Bill 804, establishing the Texas Good Neighbor Commission (GNC) as a temporary state agency. The Commission was composed of nine members, each appointed by the Governor with Senate approval to two-year terms. In 1947, the 50th Legislature, through House Bill 468, made the Good Neighbor Commission a permanent state commission. The members were now appointed to six-year, overlapping terms. A chair was elected by the members. Administrative duties were carried out by an Executive Secretary, later the Executive Director. The Commission was to meet annually in Austin, and otherwise as directed by the chairman. Eventually, the Commission met quarterly.

The initial mandate of the GNC was to promote inter-American goodwill, advance inter-American relations, and improve the conditions of Mexicans and those of Latin American ancestry in the state. During the early years, the Commission largely dealt with discrimination and related problems, such as school and housing segregation, and the treatment of braceros and migrant laborers. The Mexican government refused to allow the import of Mexican nationals for labor into areas with discrimination problems. This put a strain on several areas of the state needing unskilled laborers, especially for agriculture. To combat these problems, the GNC worked with local governments to establish local good neighbor or human relations councils which could deal with all but the severe discrimination cases. When a particular city/county had successfully resolved its discrimination problems the GNC would contact Mexican officials requesting removal of the area from the blacklist. The Good Neighbor Commission also launched a public awareness campaign to make Texans aware of such situations and measures taken or needed to improve conditions.

The Good Neighbor Commission also worked for education, securing scholarships for Texan and Latin American students, encouraging and assisting with visits of Mexican teachers to Texas, promoting the teaching of Spanish in Texas schools, and sponsoring the Pan American Student Forum. In addition, it established the International Good Neighbor Council; sponsored lecturers from Latin American Republics to speak in Texas; encouraged travel in Texas and Mexico; improved press relations in Texas and Mexico; encouraged and assisted in the development of international projects, such as parks, bridges, and highways; and participated in other international affairs.

In 1965 the mandate of the Good Neighbor Commission was altered to include additional migrant labor responsibilities. The 59th Legislature, through Senate Bill 179, abolished the Texas Council of Migrant Labor (established in 1957) and transferred all of its duties and responsibilities to the Good Neighbor Commission. This Council had been responsible for coordinating the work of state agencies in improving travel and living conditions of migrant laborers. Further legislation in 1971 (Senate Bill 676) required the GNC to submit an annual report on migrant affairs to the Governor and Legislature. This bill also created a Good Neighbor Commission of Texas Fund--a repository for private donations to the GNC. In 1975, migrant responsibilities were transferred to the newly-created Governor's Office of Migrant Affairs.

In 1979 the 66th Legislature, through House Bill 1061, revised the statute of the Good Neighbor Commission. Changes included the application of the Open Meetings and Open Records Act and the Sunset Act, and changes in some responsibilities. The Commission's new duties were to assist agencies and others in the advancement of inter-American understanding and goodwill; provide language translation services to state agencies and other government bodies; support and sponsor the Pan American Student Forum; gather information, do research, and conduct investigations related to inter-American affairs; maintain contact with western hemisphere officials and act as a source of information for the Consular Corps in Texas; represent the Governor and make arrangements for state officials to appear at public events; receive foreign dignitaries; serve as protocol advisors or interpreters at meetings between state officials of western hemisphere countries; and establish and maintain offices in Mexico to provide information between Texas and Mexico.

Some specific activities undertaken by the GNC included sponsoring and arranging student exchange visits; coordinating visits of Mexican officials to Texas and a series of exchange visits between Governor William Clements and governors of bordering Mexican states; assisting in establishing a series of border conferences between U.S. and Mexican border states, and arranging meetings between the GNC and other state border commissions; continuing sponsorship of the Pan American Student Forum; and interaction with the International Good Neighbor Council.

Throughout its existence, the Good Neighbor Commission endeavored to improve relations between Texas and Latin American Republics, namely Mexico. The Commission worked with several organizations that also worked toward these goals. Two organizations closely associated with the GNC were the Pan American Student Forum of Texas (PASF) and the International Good Neighbor Council (IGNC). The PASF is composed of students who are interested in studying countries and cultures of other American Republics and fostering better relations with these countries. This organization was established in Texas in 1943. Since 1949 the Good Neighbor Commission has sponsored the PASF and provided administrative assistance. The IGNC was created in 1954 following a resolution passed by the Good Neighbor Commission. The IGNC was created as an international cooperative body formed to study border problems between Texas and its bordering Mexican states--Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, and Chihuahua. In later years, other U.S. and Mexican states have joined this organization. The Good Neighbor Commission maintained close ties with this organization as its Executive Director was an ex officio member of the IGNC Board of Directors.

In the mid 1980s, funding for the Good Neighbor Commission was not legislatively appropriated. It was funded for FY 1986 - FY 1987 through the Governor's Office. The Commission was not given any funding for FY 1988 or FY 1989, and as of September 1, 1987, had been designated as a non-functioning agency. It was due for Sunset review in 1991. The Sunset Commission recommended the agency not be continued. The Legislature took no action to continue the agency, so the Good Neighbor Commission was allowed to expire (Vernon's statutes Art. 4101-2).

International Good Neighbor Council, [195-] - 1987,
9 cubic ft.

Initially called the Five State Good Neighbor Council, the International Good Neighbor Council (IGNC) was formed in 1954 following a resolution passed by the Texas Good Neighbor Commission. This resolution was designed to form an internationally cooperative body to study border problems and promote cooperation between Texas and its four sister states across the border--Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, and Chihuahua. In 1955 the states of California, New Mexico, and Arizona in the United States; and Sinaloa, Durango, Baja California, and other Mexican states were invited to join. The name was changed to the International Good Neighbor Council. Committees and sub-committees were created to study various problems on both sides of the border, such as health, education, and social welfare. Highway development programs were created, other issues such as employment, commerce, and youth concerns were studied, and the development of tourism on both sides of the border was pursued.
The IGNC is composed of government officials, businessmen, and other individuals in the United States and Mexico interested in promoting good-will between the United States and Mexico. The IGNC is governed by a Board of Directors, of which the Executive Director of the Good Neighbor Commission is an ex officio member. The IGNC meets twice annually, and the Board of Directors meets quarterly. Resolutions are passed by the committees, Board, and Council and passed on to government officials and others affected by the proposals or concerns set forth in the resolutions.
Materials consist of meeting files, correspondence, chronological files, administrative files, committee files, local IGNC chapter files, clippings, and a few topical files. Dates covered are 1950s-1987. These are the files of the International Good Neighbor Council.

Pan American Student Forum of Texas, 1951-1987,
5 cubic ft.

The Pan American Student Forum is an international and national organization begun in 1927. The Pan American Student Forum of Texas (PASF) was established in 1943. It is comprised of local chapters of students--junior high, high school, and college--who are interested in studying countries and cultures of other American Republics, and in fostering better relations with these countries. Each chapter is sponsored by a teacher and may include adult associate members. Activities of the PASF include conducting an annual state convention, awarding student scholarships, conducting or assisting with student programs and projects, publication of the Pan Am Times (the organization's official news publication), promoting the study of foreign languages--notably Spanish--in schools and colleges, and promoting better relations with Spanish-speaking peoples and countries. The PASF is governed by a Board of Directors (formerly Executive Board) composed of elected student and teacher-sponsor officers. Committees, formed of student members and an adult sponsor, carry out the duties and responsibilities of the organization.
The Forum was initially sponsored by the Texas Department of Education. In 1949, the Texas Good Neighbor Commission took over the sponsorship. It assisted the PASF by providing office space and central coordination for activities, arranged the annual PASF state convention, and provided some financing for administrative matters. The PASF, now without the Good Neighbor Commission sponsorship, functions as an independent non-profit organization.
These are records of the Pan American Student Forum of Texas. Materials consist of correspondence, memorandums, minutes, clippings, photographs, topical files, and administrative files. Dates covered are 1951-1987.

Texas Council on Migrant Labor, 1955-1965, ca. 1976,
1 cubic ft.

The Texas Council on Migrant Labor was established in 1957 by the 55th Legislature, Senate Bill 229. It was composed of seven ex-officio members--heads or executive officers of several state agencies, including the executive director of the Good Neighbor Commission. The Council had the responsibility of coordinating the work of state agencies for improving travel and living conditions of migrant laborers. Specific duties included making surveys, holding hearings, and providing consultative services on matters affecting migrant labor, and assisting state and federal agencies with formulation and promulgation of migrant-related legislation. In 1965 the 59th Legislature, through Senate Bill 179, terminated the existence of the Council. All of its duties and powers were transferred to the Texas Good Neighbor Commission.
Files contain legislation, conference proceedings, reports, newsletters, correspondence, notes, memorandums, printed materials, and clippings of the Texas Council on Migrant Labor, dating 1955-1965, and ca. 1976. These records cover the years of the Counci's existence, 1957-1965. Following these materials is a part of a migrant report prepared by the Texas Good Neighbor Commission, dated ca. 1976.
