The finding aid for the Early Texas Documents Collection, a collection that integrates 10 smaller artificial collections, is now available online. This collection chronicles the history of Texas from the Spanish Colonial Era through the turn of the 20th century.

The collection contains documents related to the activities of several prominent Texans, including Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston. Legal and land papers also document the activities of Anson Jones and Mirabeau Lamar, who both served as president of the Republic of Texas.

Coming soon, Special Collections will also be publishing a digital collection of the Early Texas Documents, so be sure to keep an eye out for that UH Digital Library project!
