In the pursuit of scholarship, we must occasionally circumnavigate monolithic obstacles impeding our path. In this case, the stairwell in the Poage Legislative Library. #baylor #bayloruniversity #mybaylor

You'll never know what you'll find when you wander around #PoageLibrary! For this #wanderingwednesday, we found an old-fashioned stereoscope in the Jack E. Hightower Book Vault. Popular in the early 20th century, a stereoscope provides two views of the same image, making the picture appear three-dimensional. #stereoscope #oldstuff #vintage

It must be something to watch yourself being turned into a sculpture! In this photo, Joan Dell creates a clay model of Congressman “Bob” Poage in honor of his dedicated service to the people. The metal sculpture is on permanent display in the W. R. Poage Reading Room. #PoageLibrary #BCPM #Archives #sculptures #Congress

On this #wanderingwednesday, we happened upon one of the many treasures at the #PoageLibrary. This is Bob Poage's congressional desk, purchased for him by his staff after he retired from Congress. A great piece of history at the Poage! #WRPoage #Congress

I'm Hannah Schwartz, and I'm a senior University Scholar major with concentrations in English Literature and Linguistics. I just started working at Poage this semester. I'm very excited to get to work here because it's an important step towards my career aspirations of becoming an archivist/special collections librarian. #PoageLibrary #studentspotlight #HarryPotterFan #WeAreAllJealousOfThisPhoto #FutureArchivist

Although "Love is in the air" this week, the faculty and staff at Poage Library love our students every week! We could not run the library and process archival collections without their valuable work. #OurStudentAssistantsAreTheBest #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

We have a lot to celebrate at #PoageLibrary today! Not only is it #ValentinesDay, but it was also Mr. and Mrs. Poage’s wedding anniversary. Isn’t this Valentine from Frances Poage to her husband just the sweetest? AND today is #LibraryLovers Day, so of course we’re all about that! #Archives #BCPM #WRPoage

Hannah, one of our student assistants, has spent much of her time this year working on our collection of the political papers of Texas and U.S. politician #JackHightower. Included in the Texas Government section of this collection are papers relating to the Constitutional Convention of 1974 which attempted to revise Texas’ 1876 constitution. Pictured here are copies of a Proposed Constitution of the State of Texas in both English and Spanish. #PoageLibrary #BCPM #Archives #TexasHistory

Welcome to #NationalSpousesDay! Members of Congress are sometimes accompanied on committee trips by their spouses, who lend perspective, support, and diplomacy. #WRPoage #ChetEdwards #CongressionalPapers #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM Photo 1: Congressman and Frances Poage on an Agriculture Committee trip to Honduras. They are at the United Nations Park lookout on Mt. Picacho with a view of the town of Tegucigalpa. They visited with farmers, ranchers, school children and dignitaries on this trip. Photo 2: Lea Ann Edwards (on left) join spouses Kayi Lewis and Sandie Knollenberg on an Appropriations Committee trip to military bases. They are with soldiers from the US Army in Kosovo.

State Representatives put in long hours on the floor of the legislature but also in speeches and public appearances. Here, John Hopkins and the Texas Youth Commission compliment State Representative Jim Dunnam for his “excellent speech” at the McLennan County State Juvenile Correctional Facility Open House in 2000. On #NationalComplimentDay, it is important to remember the work legislators do for the public good and commend them for it. So, send your state and national representatives some compliments on their hard work today! #PoageLibrary #LaudYourLegislator #ThankaRepresentative #BCPM #ComplimentDay

Handwriting refers to a person’s unique style of writing characters created with a writing utensil such as a pen or pencil. Check out future Lt. Gov. Bob Bullock’s early handwriting practice! #NationalHandwritingDay #PracticeMakesPerfect #GodBlessTexas

Our student Hannah has been dedicatedly working on the #WRPoage State Senate papers from the 1930s. For #WayBackWednesday, we wanted to share some #TexasCentennial materials found in this section. This correspondence and certificate from 1936 commemorates Poage’s work to establish the #TexasMemorialMuseum in Austin as part of the Centennial celebrations. #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

At #PoageLibrary, our #ArchivesResolutions involve processing more #HouseJointResolutions (and other materials), like this one from the Texas State Legislature in the Chet Edwards State papers. (See what we did there?) #ArchivesHashtagParty #ArchivesFun #CongressionalPapers

Happy Birthday, Judge Sam B. Hall! Born January 11, 1924, Hall served as a congressman in the 1st Congressional District of Texas, 1976-1984, and as a U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas beginning in 1985. Our student, Cameron, has been busily working away at rehousing and labeling his collection for easier research access. #SamHall #PoageLibrary #Archives #BCPM #Texas #PoliticalPapers

It’s a new year, new semester, and a fresh start! In honor of National #CleanOffYourDeskDay, we cleaned up the workspace where the #SamHall papers are being processed. Looks good, right? We’re excited for our students to come back! #ArchivesIsAMessyBusiness #ProcessingSpace #WorkSpace #PoageLibrary

Christmas cards are a fun holiday tradition that everyone enjoys, even Members of Congress! All of these cards were sent to Rep. Poage to brighten his holiday season. (Swipe right to get a closer look at a card from the well-known Senator Strom Thurmond). #MerryChristmas #ChristmasCards #PoageLibrary

The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, left a deep impression on the American public, and both Congressman Bob Poage and Congressman Marvin Leath focused on the importance of the event in their oral histories. Poage had been concerned about the possibility of war. He began hearing basic details of the attack on the radio that night, but while “there was a great deal of talk,… nobody had much information” until the following morning. Leath was ten years old at the time; when his mother—looking “like somebody had just shot her”—told him the news, he “absolutely thought the world was coming to an end.” #PearlHarbor #PearlHarborDay #December7 #WRPoage #MarvinLeath #PoageLibrary #OralHistory #BCPM
