A Guide to the Junior Historian Picture File, ca. 1958-1966.

Each year the Junior Historians have an annual meeting to share the results of their projects.
This collection consists of individual papers with photographic and other forms of illustrations on a wide range of Texas topics from Austin to Indianola and Hurricane Carla to the East Texas Oil Fields.
The collection is open for research use.
