Agency History

The Attorney General is the lawyer for the people of Texas and is charged by the Texas Constitution to: defend the laws and the Constitution of the State of Texas, represent the State in litigation, and approve public bond issues. To fulfill these responsibilities, the Office of the Attorney General serves as legal counsel to all boards and agencies of state government, issues legal opinions when requested by the Governor, heads of state agencies and other officials and agencies as provided by Texas statutes, sits as an ex-officio member of state committees and commissions, and defends challenges to state laws and suits against both state agencies and individual employees of the State.

The Office of the Attorney General has taken on numerous other roles through the years. Texas statutes contain nearly 2000 references to the Attorney General. In addition to its constitutionally prescribed duties, the Office of the Attorney General files civil suits upon referral by other state agencies. In some circumstances, the Attorney General has original jurisdiction to prosecute violations of the law, but in most cases, criminal prosecutions by the Attorney General are initiated only upon the request of a local prosecutor. Although the Attorney General is prohibited from offering legal advice or representing private individuals, he serves and protects the rights of all citizens of Texas through the activities of the various divisions of the agencies.

The office of the attorney general was created by an executive ordinance passed by the 1836 Constitutional Convention. Successors were presidential appointees by act of the First Congress, October 6, 1836. The practice of executive appointment continued during the first years of statehood, but in 1850 the office became elective. The position now exists under authority of Article IV, Sections 1 and 22 of the Constitution of 1876 and Texas Government Code, Chapter 402. In 1972, the term of office was extended from two to four years, effective in 1975.

During the nineteenth century, the attorney general provided legal advice to all upon request; requests are now limited to officials and agencies of state and local government. Opinions of the attorney general are not binding upon the judiciary, although they are persuasive to the courts. Moreover, problems which are the subject of official opinions are not often litigated, and such opinions stand as the highest available interpretation of the current law.

The fire which destroyed the capitol in 1881 originated in the attorney general's office, and almost no early records survived.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Attorney General represents the state in litigation. The Oklahoma vs. Texas litigation file maintained by the Texas Attorney General documents the dispute between the two states over the Red River and 100th meridian boundaries. The boundary dispute records contain transcripts of the court proceedings which include testimonies, affidavits, document and exhibit descriptions, and exhibits, including maps (some bound in large atlases) and photographs; briefs and opinions issued by the U.S. Supreme Court; reports; and internal notes and documents compiled by the Attorney General's Office. Materials date 1818-1929, bulk 1919-1929.

Following the discovery of oil in Wichita County and in the Red River Valley (1918-1919), the State of Oklahoma filed suit against Texas in the United States Supreme Court. Oklahoma contended that the south bank of the Red River, including the river bed and the recently discovered oil wells, were its southern boundary. Texas refuted this claim, arguing that the boundary was the center of the main channel of the Red River. Texas filed a counter-suit claiming that the Oklahoma-Texas border along the 100th Meridian was placed one-half mile west of where it should have been located. On June 1, 1921, the Supreme Court held that the south bank of the Red River constituted the correct boundary, although a petition of intervention, filed March 29, 1920, held that the river bed was the territory and property of the United States and its Indian wards. Hearings determined what geologically constituted the south bank, as the Red River had changed course since the Treaty of 1819. On October 6, 1926, the 100th Meridian counter-suit was decided in favor of Texas, and two commissioners were appointed to locate and fix the boundary.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
