History of Land Grants to Texas Railroads, 1852-1882. iii+7o pp.
North Texas State College, Denton, Texas
Contents: This thesis is a study of the history of land grants to Texas railroads.
The first chapter traces the rise of the land grant idea, showing its roots in the
geographical and economic conditions of early Texas. The second chapter gives a
detailed history of land grant aid given to railroads in Texas from the first land
grant act in 1852 to the exhaustion of the public domain in 1882. The concluding
chapter shows effects of land grant aid on railroads and on the state as a whole.
Comparisons are made of land grant aid with other forms of aid to railroad build-
ing and also of the amounts of public land granted and of other dispositions of
the public domain. The study is designed to serve as an authoritative reference
work covering this particular movement in Texas history. The information was
collected from histories, newspaper and magazine articles, records of land patents,
and Texas laws to 1882.
