The finding aid for the Andrea White Papers is now available online. This collection includes speeches, written works, and other materials that document White’s civic and professional live.
Perhaps best known in Houston as the wife of former mayor and Texas gubernatorial candidate Bill White, Andrea White is also the author of eight young adult books. Her works have been featured on the Texas Bluebonnet List, and she was awarded the 2006 Golden Spur Award by the Texas State Reading Association. The collection contains drafts and translations of some of these works, along with research notes and correspondence.
Also found in the collection are drafts of speeches given by White, including while campaigning for her husband, and works documenting the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The original materials are available for use by the public in the Special Collections Reading Room.
