Agency History

The governor of Texas is the chief executive officer of the state elected by the citizens every four years. The duties and responsibilities of the governor include serving as commander-in-chief of the state's military forces; convening special sessions of the legislature for specific purposes; delivering to the legislature at the beginning of each regular session a report on the condition of the state, an accounting of all public money under the governor's control, a recommended biennial budget, an estimate of the amounts of money required to be raised by taxation, and any recommendations he deems necessary; signing or vetoing bills passed by the legislature; and executing the laws of the state.

The office of the governor of the state of Texas was created by the Texas Constitution of 1845. It superseded the office of the president of the Republic of Texas upon the annexation of Texas by the United States. The 1845 Constitution defined the term of office as two years, with no more than four years served in a six-year period. The governor was required to be thirty years old at minimum, a U.S. citizen, and a Texas resident for at least three years (Article V, Section 4).

The Constitution outlined a number of powers held by the governor of Texas. The governor acted as the commander-in-chief of the army, navy, and militia of the state unless they were transferred into service under the federal government (Article V, Section 6). He could call up a state militia to "execute the laws of the State to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions" (Article VI, Section 4). The governor made recommendations to the legislature and provided written information on the state of the government (Article V, Section 9). He could also convene the legislature when necessary and adjourn the legislature in the case of a disagreement between the House and Senate (Article V, Section 8). The governor had the power to grant reprieves and pardons in criminal cases except those of treason or impeachment, and to approve or disapprove bills, orders, resolutions, or votes from the legislature (Article V, Sections 11, 17 and 18). The governor also appointed supreme and district court judges and an attorney general with the consent of two-thirds of the Senate (Article IV, Sections 5 and 12).

The 1845 Constitution also created the office of secretary of state, appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Senate for the governor's term of service. The secretary of state worked closely with the governor, and was required to "keep a fair register of all official acts and proceedings of the governor" (Article V, Section 16). The Constitution called for the election of a lieutenant governor at the time of the governor's election with the same qualifications and term of office, but to be voted for separately by electors. The lieutenant governor served as president of the Senate and could cast a deciding vote in ties, as well as take on the governor's powers in his absence or until a new governor was elected and qualified or the previous governor was able to resume office (Article V, Section 12). In addition, it further called for the biennial election of a state treasurer and comptroller of public accounts by the legislature, with vacancies to be filled by the governor (Article V, Section 23). However, a constitutional amendment in 1850 allowed the public election of the state treasurer and comptroller.

The constitutional language defining the office of the governor changed marginally with the Texas Constitution of 1861, which was written when Texas seceded from the United States to join the Confederate States at the onset of the Civil War. The 1861 Constitution replaced mention of the United States with the Confederate States, removed a requirement for U.S. citizenship for Texas governors, raised the governor's salary, and set a date for the governor and lieutenant governor to take office after an election.

The Constitution of 1866 arose out of the Constitution of 1861 with certain amendments made during the Constitutional Convention of 1866. These amendments were intended to bring the Texas constitution back into compliance with United States law. The Constitution of 1866 made minor alterations to the office of the governor, extending his term of office to four years with no more than eight years served in a 12-year period, and increasing his salary to $4,000 annually. He was also granted the power of the item veto on appropriations and to convene the legislature outside of the state capital if necessary.

Another constitutional convention took place in 1868-1869 under the Reconstruction Acts of 1867, ultimately producing the Constitution of 1869. It affected the office of the governor by again raising the governor's salary, this time to $5,000 annually, and giving the governor the right to appoint the attorney general and secretary of state, with the other state offices being appointed by election.

Biographical Sketch

Edward Clark served as governor of Texas from March 16, 1861 to November 7, 1861. Clark was born on April 1, 1815 in New Orleans, Louisiana, the nephew of John Clark, Georgia governor from 1819 to 1823. Edward Clark spent his early childhood in Georgia. He moved to Alabama around 1932 and studied law. He married Lucy Long in 1840, but his wife died within a few months. By December 1841 Clark had moved to Texas and opened a law practice in Marshall. In July 1849 he married Martha Evans of Marshall. The couple had four children.

Clark was elected to the Annexation Convention of 1845, the House of Representatives in the First Legislature, and the state Senate in the Second Legislature. He served under General J. Pinckney Henderson at the Battle of Monterrey and was appointed secretary of state by Governor Elisha Marshall Pease (1853-1857), and subsequently state commissioner of claims in 1858. Clark replaced Houston as governor after Houston's refusal to take the oath of allegiance to the Confederate States of America. The focus of Clark's governorship was the raising of troops and the gathering of supplies to assist in the fight for the Confederacy. After being narrowly defeated by Francis Lubbock in an effort to win a full term as governor (he lost by 124 votes), Clark became colonel of the 14th Texas Infantry. He was wounded at Pleasant Hill, Louisiana, and was promoted to brigadier general before his discharge. After a brief exile in Mexico at the end of the war, Clark returned to business and a law practice in Marshall, where he died on May 4, 1880.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The governor of Texas is the chief executive officer of the state elected by citizens every four years. Edward Clark served as governor of Texas from March 16, 1861 to November 7, 1861. Records of Governor Clark's term relate to the affairs of the state of Texas at the beginning of the Confederacy. Types of records include correspondence, petitions, clippings, minutes, reports, proclamations, resolutions, circulars, passports, recommendations, requisitions, proceedings, and wrappers, dating from around March 4 to November 27, 1861. The majority of the documents relate to Confederate military affairs in Texas in 1861. Some of the general topics dealt with include requests for appointments to and resignations from state and district offices and to military positions, requests for commissions and offers to raise companies for Confederate service, reports on the organization of companies, requests for arms and ammunition, reports of military positions and fortifications, reports on the defense of the Texas coast, letters related to railroad matters, and reports of relations with Native Americans. Correspondents include John S. Ford, Ben McCulloch, Thomas Carothers, Charles Lovenskiold, P.N. Luckett, E.B. Nichols, William G. Webb, C.G. Forshey, and M.F. Locke. Most correspondence is incoming, although several outgoing letters are included. A few documents date from Francis R. Lubbock's term as governor.

Certain types of correspondence that appear consistently and frequently throughout the records have been omitted from the item level description, including applications or recommendations for appointments to various official positions, applications for commissions to raise companies for military service, and petitions or requests for exemptions or details from military service. Some of the descriptions of individual items were taken directly from notes made on the back of the records, likely by a secretary around the same time that the letters were received. The item-level description also specifies, where relevant, when contents include handwritten items by including the letters "ms" after the date, as well as the number of pages.

In the past, items relating to the State Penitentiary in Huntsville were removed from the records of governors, secretaries of state, treasurers and comptrollers to create an artificial collection of records relating to the penitentiary. Items related to Native American affairs and railroads may have also been removed from the records. In addition, the original order of the records was disrupted when they were sorted by date. As a result, letters or petitions that were enclosed in other letters may have been separated from their original context. In addition, one item listed in folder 63 was not located as of April 28, 2014, and one item listed in folder 30 was not located as of October 2001.
