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.

About this Partner

St. Philip's College has provided the Portal with items focused around the history of San Antonio's historically black college; including over 500 photographs. The College is dedicated to providing an educational environment which stimulates leadership, personal growth, and a lifelong appreciation for learning while focusing on socioeconomic diversity.

The Library has maintained a small, select archive since 1978. The library preserves not only the college documents it receives on a voluntary basis, but also historical documents donated by the faculty, staff, and community members.
