The Special Collections and University Archives would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and good wishes for the New Year!

This 1922 Christmas Greetings card is part of a two-card collection of greeting cards done by Albert Rutherston and published in London by the Crown Press.

Albert Rutherston was a British artist who painted figures, landscapes, illustrated books, posters, and stage sets. He was the author of a book called, “Decoration in the Art of the Theatre,” 1910. This title can be found in the main library collection at call number, PN2091 .S8 R89 1919.

You can find these greeting cards in the Special Collections, Thomason Room, under John Drinkwater Christmas Cards, 2016.S12, single item collection.

We look forward to everyone coming to visit the Newton Gresham Library Special Collections and University Archives at Sam Houston State University in the coming year.

  1. Looking to sale a rare collection item: An original 45th Annual “Texas Prison Rodeo” ticket, dated
    Oct. 10, 1976. Every Sunday 2pm in October. Excellent Condition, never used Gate 2, Sec. D, row 20, Seat 12. North Side Admission $4.00. Am I in the correct location? Is this a real Newspaper, with a Sunday Edition, and all those good things?
