Agency History

The Director and Librarian of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission oversees the operations of that agency's divisions through which his/her duties and responsibilities are carried out. The Librarian, through the years, has served on various state boards and committees, sometimes appointed, sometimes as an ex-officio member, such as the Board of Library Examiners and the Sesquicentennial Commission. The Librarian has also been involved with legislation affecting public libraries in Texas, including the Library Systems Act and the Library Services and Construction Act. The Librarian has also worked to secure grant funding from several sources for public libraries and various programs within the State Library, such as the Blind and Physically Handicapped program. S/He has also served in varying capacities (committees, boards, etc.) with a number of library/historical groups, including the Texas Library Association, the Texas State Historical Association, the Society of American Archivists, and others. The Librarian also makes presentations to groups such as these, to smaller organizations (such as county-wide groups), and to public libraries. During the time period covered by these records the State Librarians were Dr. Dorman Winfrey, William D. Gooch, and Dr. Robert S. Martin.

The Texas State Library and Archives Commission was created in 1909 (House Bill 142, 31st Legislature, Regular Session) and is governed by Chapter 441 of the Government Code, V.T.C.A. (previously Vernon's Ann. Civ. St., Article 5434). Commission members are appointed by the Governor, with concurrence of the Senate, to six-year overlapping terms. The Commission appoints the Director and Librarian who serves as the executive officer of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission as well as the executive and administrative officer of the Commission's governing board. Duties of the Director and Librarian are to record the proceedings of the Commission and keep account of its financial transactions; approve expenditures made in connection with the State Library; have charge of the State Library and materials contained therein; demand and collect records of state agencies and officials not connected to their current duties; endeavor to collect manuscript records in the hands of private individuals; procure archives of the state which have been removed, including those found in Mexico and other states; preserve historical relics and memorabilia which come into possession of the State Library; give proper attention to the care and availability of the archives in custody of the State Library; make a biennial report to the Governor; and ascertain the condition of all public libraries in the state and report the results to the Commission. Additionally, s/he is authorized by law to transfer, dispose of, or otherwise destroy records in his/her custody that have no permanent value.

As of 1984, divisions were Administration (including offices of the Librarian, Assistant Librarian, and publications), Administrative Services (including personnel, accounting, building services, purchasing, and a print shop), Archives (administering the permanently valuable official records of the state and related historical materials), Data Processing (providing computer operations and assistance to the divisions), Blind and Physically Handicapped (providing materials for blind and disabled patrons), Information Services (including genealogy, reference, U.S. and Texas documents programs, and technical services), Library Development (working with public libraries to secure funding, etc.), Local Records (operating a depository program for county records), and Records Management (storing official records of the state until they are transferred to the Archives for permanent storage or are disposed of due to a non-permanent value). By 1995, the divisions had been condensed into Administrative Services, Automated Information Systems, the Talking Book Program (providing services to all disabled Texans), Archives and Information Services (combining the majority of the old programs of the Archives and the Information Services and managing Regional Historical Resource Depositories), Technical Services (responsible for acquisitions, cataloging, processing and binding of library materials), Statewide Library Development (to promote and improve Texas libraries), and State and Local Records Management. Since 1995, the Executive Office has been a somewhat independent unit, incorporating the Public Information Office and the offices of the Assistant Librarian and the Director and Librarian.

(Sources include: the enabling legislation, 1909; Chapter 441 of the Government Code, V.T.C.A.; and the records themselves.)

Survey of public libraries, 1965,
1.56 cubic ft.

The Director and Librarian of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission oversees the operations of that agency's divisions through which his/her duties and responsibilities are carried out; one of those responsibilities is to ascertain the condition of all public libraries in the state and to report the results to the Commission. This series consists of a statistical compilation (on a computer printout) of data concerning public libraries in the state of Texas. All records date from 1965. The survey was undertaken to gather statistical data on the operations of public libraries. The information was gathered by the Field Services Division of the Texas State Library. Tabulation was done by Management Research International, Inc., of Austin, Texas. This is or has been a continuing project. In other years the library survey has been published. Copies of most years (beginning with 1966) of Texas Public Library Statistics can be found in the Texana collection of the Archives Division. No published copy of the 1965 data has been located to date.
Reports were done in three sections: individual libraries, organized by size of the city's population; individual libraries, organized alphabetically by city; and county summaries of libraries and services in the county. Type of data present include name and location of library; number of branches, stations, and bookmobiles; population served; number of volumes on hand, ordered and withdrawn; circulation statistics by type of book; number of registered borrowers - adult, juvenile, per capita; hours of service per week; financial status (receipts and expenditures) of library; and classification of staff by type of position. County summaries include number of libraries in county, population served, volumes on hand, income of libraries, and assessed valuation of libraries.

Sam Houston Regional Library and Research Center files, 1973-1993,
1 cubic ft.

The Director and Librarian of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission oversees the operations of that agency's divisions through which his/her duties and responsibilities are carried out; one of those responsibilities is to give proper attention to the care and availability of the archives in custody of the State Library. Records document the planning of, funding for, construction of, and operation of the Sam Houston Regional Library and Research Center under the guidance of Director and Librarian Dorman Winfrey. Types of records include correspondence, grant proposals, committee membership lists, printed material, memoranda, plans, specifications, project reports, product information, blueprints, contracts, notices to bidders, deeds, leases, bills, newspapers, press releases, programs, agenda, a speech, an organization chart, and an invitation, 1973-1993. The facility was constructed by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, in conjunction with Lamar University, to serve the ten counties in southeast Texas that comprise the original Atascosito-Liberty District of the Republic of Mexico, by preserving and providing access to official and private papers of historical interest. The Research Center also provides teaching facilities and library collections on Texas history, general history, government, and religion. The construction, decoration, and furnishing was funded by individual and foundation donations and grants; no public funds were used save for operational and maintenance funds. The site itself was donated by former Texas Governor and Mrs. Price Daniel and family. Price Daniel, who served on the board of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, appears frequently in the records, donating funds, assisting with the planning and fundraising, serving on the Building Committee (as did then Lieutenant Governor William Hobby), inspecting the building while it was under construction, and expressing an interest in its operations. A few records concern the Atascosito Historical Society, funded in 1973, which sponsored the establishment of the Research Center.

Records are listed in the order in which they arrived.

Gifts and donations, 1952-1968, 1988-1993,
1.05 cubic ft.

The Director and Librarian of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission oversees the operations of that agency's divisions through which his/her duties and responsibilities are carried out. This series consists of donation forms and correspondence with donors concerning money, books and other items donated to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Records range in date from 1952 to 1968 and 1988 to 1993. Donor forms are attached to relevant correspondence and usually contain a brief description of the gift, the donor's name and address, the date, and the division of the State Library where the gift was placed. By the mid-1960s a typed donor form had replaced most of the correspondence and is usually the only item present which documents the donation. These forms were rarely signed. It is quite possible that correspondence concerning the donation can be found in the miscellaneous files or in the correspondence found in previous library accessions. Donor forms for 1969-1983 were interfiled with the Director's correspondence and can be found in the series Correspondence and subject files (see the files labeled "Gifts.")
Arrangement
Records appear to be arranged in roughly reverse chronological order.
