Sam Houston Bicentennial Birthday celebration ephemera

The Sam Houston Bicentennial Collection consists of correspondence, articles, clippings, catalogues and materials relating to the Bicentennial celebration.  This collection is housed in two archival boxes, arranged in two series. Series one contains correspondence related to seeking additional Sam Houston materials, clippings and articles about Sam Houston the man. Series two has materials relating to Sam Houston’s Bicentennial celebrations. Materials in both series are dated 1992 and 1993.

The materials that make up the first series are a part of efforts made to acquire Sam Houston (the man) related materials. Correspondence between Mr. Paul Culp and various University and College libraries make up a large part of this series. There are also catalogues and other lists showing Sam Houston-related holdings. The second series consists entirely of materials related to Sam Houston’s Centennial Celebrations including brochures, invitations and newspaper clippings. Many of these items have biographical information about Sam Houston the man including timelines of his life and accomplishments, as well as information about the celebrations themselves which took place all over Huntsville, Texas in 1993 (two hundred years after Sam Houston’s birth.)
