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
Today we bring you #BookfaceFriday from our #HightowerBookVault! Our student assistants had fun taking this photo and some future posts with books from our signed collection. Sally Shaywitz is the Professor of Learning Development at Yale University School of Medicine. #FriYay #PoageLibrary #BCPM
In honor of summer, here's a picture of Jack Hightower playing chef at an event. Happy grilling! #jackhightower #PoageLibrary #BCPM #summer #grilling
It’s our birthday!! "I hope we never complete this library, but make it a living institution with continuous additions." W. R. Poage, September 21, 1979
I'm so excited to be working at #PoageLibrary and I'm looking forward to step out of my comfort zone with a job I have no prior experience in, it's going to be a great one! - Stacy DeLeon #StudentSpotlight #baylor
Scott is a Graduate Assistant at Poage Library, currently processing the Clark Thompson papers. He will complete his MA in History this spring. His favorite object is the collection of Presidential signatures in the Jack Hightower Book Vault for several reasons: 1) the incredible dedication and patience exhibited by Hightower in gathering the collection and 2) the way the signatures help us visually understand that our presidents were individuals with their own distinct personalities.

Today marks the birthday of Alan Steelman (1943- ), former U.S. Congressman from Texas, 1973-1976. Steelman is remembered for a legacy of justice as a Republican politician who fought to protect the natural environment of the Trinity River and boosted minority representation in the business sector. Throughout his life, Mr. Steelman enjoyed baseball, polo, and fishing. Happy birthday Mr. Steelman and thank you for your selfless public service!

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
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
It’s #CartoonTuesday! On this rainy day in Waco, it seems appropriate to pull out this Bob Bullock political cartoon from 1994. Bullock served as the State Comptroller, 1975-1990, and Lieutenant Governor, 1991-1999.
Bullock’s caricature states: “Enjoy the weather now. This is what we have to look forward to!” #PoliticalCartoons #BobBullock #PoageLibrary #LibrariesOfInstagram #Archives #BCPM

We continue today with our staff and grad students’ favorite objects. Hannah is a Graduate Assistant at Poage Library and works on exhibits and with our 3-D objects. She will complete her MA in Museum Studies this spring. His favorite object is this Squiggle Jiggles pen because it is a fun memento from Ross Perot’s 1992 presidential campaign. And, he helped fund the Perot Museum of Nature and Science which makes this pen even cooler!

Erik is the Baylor Libraries Exhibit Curator and Coordinator. His favorite object at the Poage Library is this voting machine because you can see Franklin D. Roosevelt’s name on the ballot under Democratic Presidential candidate. That’s a pretty cool piece of history!

We are starting a new series over the next two months featuring our staff and grad students and their favorite objects or artifacts at Poage Library!
Amanda is the Project Archivist at Poage Library. Her favorite document is this piece of correspondence from a young girl to Chet Edwards while he was in the Texas Senate. It’s one of the more amusing artifacts she’s come across, but it is representative of her love for all that you can learn about an era and a people through their letters to their representatives.

Did you miss that hour of sleep when you turned your clock back yesterday? In a lot of our collections, we’ve noticed that constituents have had many opinions about Daylight Savings Time. This woman from the Panhandle wrote to her congressman, Jack Hightower, in 1976 to express her views.

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!
