Agency History

The 47th Legislature, by House Bill 45 (effective February 10, 1941) created the Texas Defense Guard, to be organized by the Governor whenever any part of the Texas National Guard was in active federal service (as they were during the emergency beginning prior to Pearl Harbor, and extending to 1947). This militia force was intended to serve only within the borders of the state, except (by mutual consent of the state governors involved) to aid the military or police forces of another state, or "in fresh pursuit of insurrectionists, saboteurs, enemies, or enemy forces beyond the borders of this State." Members of the Guard would neither be liable for, nor exempt from, federal military service as a result of their membership in the Guard. Eventually 51 battalions were formed, each battalion containing a headquarters and a headquarters detachment, a service detachment, and a medical detachment, in addition to between four and eight companies. Up to fifteen air force squadrons, two battalions of field artillery, and several bands, were also authorized. In 1943 the 48th Legislature, by House Bill 585, changed the name of the organization to the Texas State Guard, and made a distinction between the active and the reserve militia.

When the Texas National Guard was demobilized in 1947, the 50th Legislature (by Senate Bill 361) created the Texas State Guard Reserve Corps (TSGRC), to provide a reservoir of military strength for use by the state in time of national or state emergency, when any part of the Texas National Guard was called into federal service. When so activated, this Texas State Guard Reserve Corps would function as the Texas State Guard (TSG). The Governor of Texas appointed a Commanding General for the Texas State Guard Reserve Corps, to be supervised by the Adjutant General of Texas. Initially the state was divided into twelve districts, each with a colonel as regimental commander.

In January 1958, the TSGRC was reorganized as follows: an Active Reserve, a Ready Reserve, an Inactive Reserve, an Enlisted Reserve, an Honorary Reserve, a Provost Marshal Section, and an ROTC-NDCC [Reserve Officer Training Corps-National Defense Cadet Corps] Group. As the most important component, the Active Reserve was composed of a Corps Headquarters, one Corps Radio Unit, six Defense Group Headquarters, six Defense Group Radio Units, 30 Internal Security Battalions (about half of them strictly cadre units with officer personnel only), and 12 Radio and Rescue Detachments, with a total authorized strength of 10,000 officers and enlisted men.

In 1965, the 59th Legislature, by House Bill 410, abolished the TSGRC and replaced it with the Texas State Guard; in this act the Active Militia (or State Military Forces) is defined as consisting of the Texas Army National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard (known collectively as the Texas National Guard), supplemented by the Texas State Guard.

Detailed Description of the Records

 

Battalion records, 1941-1971, undated,
64.67 cubic ft.

These records include military orders (general, special, and field orders), correspondence and memoranda, battalion inspection reports, reports of annual federal inspections, morning reports (monthly reports of drills and exercises), monthly reports of guard duty, quarterly strength reports, special reports (mainly on incidents involving martial law), daily staff journals, petitions, legislation, news clippings, maps (mainly for maneuvers), reports of unit funds, council books with company accounts, inventories, battalion rosters, requests for reassignments, handbooks, reports of National Guard duty performed, and field training and armory drill payrolls. They comprise the battalion records of the Texas State Guard, its antecedents and its successors, dating 1941-1971, and undated, but mostly for the period of World War II (1941-1945). Since the nature of the records included in the pre-1947 period is markedly different from those in the post-1947 period, each is described separately.

Battalion records, 1948-1971, undated,
2.5 cubic ft.
These are battalion records of the Texas State Guard, dating 1948-1971. They consist partly of records of the 926th Medical Ambulance Company (211th Medical Battalion, 95th Medical Group), 1948-1950, including correspondence, reports of National Guard duty performed, and field training and armory drill payrolls. Much more voluminous, however, are the strength reports and organization files of the Internal Security Battalions and Security Units of the six Defense Groups of the Texas State Guard, mainly 1961-1971. In addition to the quarterly strength reports, there are organizational files that include correspondence and memoranda, military orders (general, special, and field orders), reports of annual inspections, daily staff journals, battalion rosters, requests for reassignments, handbooks, etc.
Arrangement
These records are arranged numerically by battalion.
