Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Research for this bibliography proved revealing. The Library of Con-
gress lists 13,569 titles under the keyword "Texas," 581,490 under "his-
tory," 6,649 under "business," 1,703 under "historians," and 4,969
under "economic history." No titles under the key words "Texas-Busi-
ness-History" are listed. I found nothing in the electronic card catalog
using a combination of key words including "Texas" and "history" with
other synonyms, such as "industry," "business enterprises," "industrial,"
and "economic history." I searched the following libraries for citations:
the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.; the Albert B. Alkek Library
of Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos; the Perry-Castafieda
Library, Undergraduate Library, and Center for American History of the
University of Texas at Austin; the University of Virginia Library in Char-
lottesville, Virginia; the Dallas Public Library's Business and Technology
Center; the Houston Public Library; the Austin Public Library; and the
San Antonio Public Library. I used publication lists from the Texas State
Historical Association, the Texas Historical Commission, the Bureau of
Business Research at the University of Texas at Austin, the Texas Educa-
tion Agency, and the Texas Department of Commerce.
This bibliography has 855 citations and is offered as a tool for histori-
ans to use in further exploration. Thus this work is an effort to encour-
age additional scholarly examination. An apology is extended to authors
whose titles were overlooked. The following is the first half of the select-
ed bibliography. The remainder will appear in the January 1996 issue of
the Southwestern Historical Quarterly.
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OVER TIME
The story of Texas is the story of economic development. This section includes
business and economic histories. Economic history deals with the means and
output of production over time, while business history tells of the people and
events which took place in the development of business enterprises. The listings
in this category are divided by time periods. Pre-1 9o00 works were before the dis-
covery of oil-the most important business event in Texas history. Another logi-
cal break point for this first grouping was 1945 because the post-war years were
so dynamic for the state's business community. 1980 is the most logical year to
begin the modern era of Texas business. National and international events, the
boom and bust of the oil industry, and the flowering of high technology pushed
Texas into a new age.
