THE TEXAS STATE CAPITOL
SELECTED ESSAYS FROM THE
Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Through its majestic form and monumental style,
the Texas State Capitol (erected 1882-1888)
reflects the pride of Texas citizens in the culture
and government of their state. Now, as we cele-
brate the restoration of the century-old structure
and the completion of a stately new underground
wing, a team of specialists in architecture, decora-
tive arts, art history, landscape history, and labor
history helps us reflect on the history and signifi-
cance of the Capitol
and the American
practice of commemo-
rating democratic gov-
ernment in grand pub-
Each chapter in this
informative book cov-
ers a different facet of
the Capitol's history,
making it clear that
only through the dedi-
cated commitment of
our elected officials
was one of the finest
statehouses of the late
nineteenth century completed. The chapters are
selected from the Southwestern Historical Quarterly,
which won a certificate of commendation from
the American Association for State and Local
History for its Capitol centennial issue in 1988.
