Biographical Note

John Robert Peace, Jr. (1917-1974) was a Texas lawyer and public official. Born and raised near Wharton, Texas, he moved to San Antonio soon after receiving his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1939. He married San Antonio native Ruby McGee and, together, they raised three children. In 1967, Governor John B. Connolly named Peace to the University of Texas Board of Regents, where he served as chairman from 1971 until the expiration of his term in 1973. He is credited with being a driving force in the establishment of the University of Texas at San Antonio. Peace also was an avid collector of Texana, and he amassed a collection of about 900 books and 500 manuscripts, some dating back to the 1700s.

Peace was associated with several of the rare book and manuscript dealers of Texana, including Ray Walton, Fred White, Ben Whitehead and John Jenkins.

The manuscript of José Enrique de la Peña, popularly known as the "De la Peña diary", first appeared publicly in 1955 under the title La Rebelión de Texas. The manuscript was edited and published by Jesús Sánchez Garza, a Mexico City antiquities dealer. Peña served as a Mexican Army officer under General Antonio López Santa Anna's 1836 campaign in Texas, and his papers provide a first-person account of the Texas Revolution. The original manuscript and subsequent publication were practically unknown in the United States, until the 1975 publication of an English-language edition, translated by Carmen Perry, under the title With Santa Anna in Texas: A Personal Narrative of the Revolution (Texas A&M University Press).

Scope and Content Note

The collection is comprised of materials collected by John R. Peace, Jr. Materials document Texas history, including the publication of the "De la Peña diary" (La Rebelión de Texas). Materials are divided into three series: Historical Manuscripts, La Rebelión de Texas Collection, and Other Materials.

The Historical Manuscripts series is comprised of more than 350 documents--both original manuscripts and printed material--related to Texas history, concentrating on the periods before 1860: Vice-regal Mexico, Republic of Texas, U.S. annexation, and Confederate state. Peace used Thomas W. Streeter's Bibliography of Texas, 1795-1845 as a collecting guide.

The La Rebelión de Texas Collection collection is comprised of twenty-two folders containing original documents and typescripts, as well as copies of manuscript and typescript documents related to the publication of La Rebelión de Texas. The documents consist of historical manuscripts, copies and transcriptions of original documents, dated 1825-1840. Other documents, mostly undated but circa 1954, consist of letters, newspaper articles, transcriptions, drafts and notes probably created or used by Sánchez Garza for the publication.

The Other Materials series comprises additional materials either collected by or related to John Peace. Materials include an autographed record, a photograph of John Peace, and two resolutions. One resolution, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, recognizes John Peace's contributions to the University. The second resolution, from the University of Texas System, recognizes John Peace's service on the University of Texas Board of Regents.

Acquisition Information

Received from John Peace, Jr. in 1973, and from the Peace family in 1980-1981. Broadside purchaded in 2009 (Acc. 2008-079, 2009-057).

In 1973, John Peace, Jr. donated his collection of Texana materials to the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in order to establish a center for historical research at the University. In 1980, the Peace family donated a collection of 53 original Congressional Reading Bills. Then, in 1981, the family donated an additional collection of 300 books and documents, including the "De la Peña diary" and related documents, in order to augment the original contribution.

The Rebelión de Texas ("De la Peña diary") collection was purchased in 1973 by John Peace, Jr. from the widow of Jesús Sánchez Garza. At the time of its purchase, the collection included the original Peña manuscript. The collection remained in the Peace family until 1981, at which time John's widow, Ruby, loaned the Peña manuscript to UTSA for an indefinite period, and donated the related documents, along with a number of other items. In 1998, the Peace family retrieved the Peña manuscript from indefinite loan at UTSA and offered it for sale. The manuscript was purchased jointly by two private individuals who, in turn, donated it to the Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin. The related material remained at UTSA.
