Texas Borderlands Newspaper Collection

About the Collection

The Texas Borderlands Newspaper Collection spans the years 1859 to 2010, giving voice to ancestors and contemporary inhabitants of Texas, who come from multiple cultures.

Early settlers of what was then a frontier experimented with evolving agricultural practices to survive and become productive, and the titles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries discuss these different practices and how settlers used them to negotiate life in an unfamiliar landscape. The titles represented counties on or near the Texas-Mexico border and supported their respective populations through simple news service. Political ideologies were unique to every county, and these newspapers shed light on ways the county inhabitants dealt with civil disputes, elections, debates, and world events.

Honors

In 2019, the collection earned both the Center for Research Libraries' Primary Source Award for Access and the Texas Historical Commission's Award of Excellence in Preserving History.

Acknowledgments

This collection was digitized with the generous support of three TexTreasures grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, awarded through the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

This collection is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (Texas State Library and Archives Commission). (2017, 2018, 2019)
