Nestled in Donley County in the Texas Panhandle, Clarendon grew out of the cattle ranching in the region during the 19th century. The town grew into the "Athens of the Panhandle" thanks to Clarendon College and the numerous churches in the area. The Tocker Foundation provided funds to digitize materials from the city.
