Nesbitt Memorial Library Journal
Mansfield Family File, Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Colum-
bus, Texas). He was elected county attorney on November 8, 1892 and
served two terms (see Record of Election Returns 1884-1898, pages 46
and 54, Office of the County Clerk, Colorado County, Texas). On
November 3, 1896, he was elected county judge (see Record of Election
Returns 1884-1898, page 69, Office of the County Clerk, Colorado
County, Texas). On July 23, 1916, having announced his intention not
to run for reelection as county judge, he secured the Democratic
nomination for his district's seat in the United States House of
Representatives. On November 7 he was elected to the seat (see The
Eagle Lake Headlight, July 29, 1916 and November 25, 1916). In 1931,
he was appointed chairman of the Rivers and Harbors Committee (see
The Colorado County Citizen, December 17, 1931). On his eightieth
birthday, February 9, 1941, the Lower Colorado River Authority dam
that had been known as Marshall Ford Dam was officially renamed
Mansfield Dam in honor of Judge Mansfield (see The Colorado County
Citizen, February 27, 1941). On March 28, 1947, Mansfield and his
family donated a lot in Columbus to the city for the construction of a
library (see Deed Book 133, pages 342-343, Office of the County Clerk,
Colorado County, Texas). The library was subsequently named Mans-
field Memorial Library. Mansfield, still a member of the U. S. House of
Representatives, died July 12, 1947 and was buried in Eagle Lake.
