About the Collection

The Humble Echo started in 1942, providing a window into Humble life through local news, ads for local companies, and personal memos from local townspeople to their loved ones fighting in the war. Later issues show the construction of Houston Intercontinental Airport when it was being built in the area. Funded by a Rescuing Texas History grant.
