ary 11, 1984.
The development of Texas from rural frontier to republic and
statehood is filled with romantic history and folklore of the men and
women who molded a society in the untamed West. One such hero,
William Alexander Anderson ("Bigfoot") Wallace, comes alive
through a collection recently placed in the Eugene C. Barker Texas
History Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The collection,
acquired from a relative, Mildred D. Varner of Ivor, Virginia, includes
manuscript letters, photographs, and personal memorabilia that give
enlightening details about the developing Texas society, as well as
about the man who became one of the Lone Star State's most out-
standing folk heroes.
