Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Lubbock Avalanche

What's Inside this Collection.

Lubbock Avalanche

The Lubbock Avalanche Collection spans 1908-1922, representing the growth of Lubbock, Texas, as the Hub City of West Texas. The first issue of the Lubbock Avalanche was published in 1900, and it was a weekly publication until late 1922, when it became a daily newspaper except on Mondays. In 1926, the Lubbock Avalanche merged with the Lubbock Daily Journal to become the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, which continues daily publication to the present.
