Administrative History:

The E.F. Jarrel papers is a collection of material relating to the life of Dr. E.F. Jarrel. Dr. Jarrel was a Tyler veterinarian who was active in state Democratic politics for most of his adult life.

He was born in Stonington, Illinois in 1875 and moved to Dallas with his family around 1886. Dr. Jarrel's father was a well known Baptist minister who had written several books on religious doctrine. He became involved in a doctrinal dispute with the Campbellites while he was in Dallas and as a result was transferred to Tyler.

After serving in the Spanish-American War, Dr. E.F. Jarrel returned to Tyler, established a veterinary practice, and became active in state Democratic politics. He supported the gubernatorial campaigns of Ma and Pa Ferguson and was appointed to several commissions and state veterinary boards. He was eventually appointed as chief veterinary officer for the state of Texas.

His chief claim to fame as a veterinarian was the control of hoof and mouth disease in the state of Texas through a system of quarantine of animals coming to Texas from Mexico.
