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

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
It’s #CartoonTuesday here at Poage Library, and we have a 1986 Bob Bullock cartoon to share. Bullock was Comptroller of Public Accounts during this time, known for making accurate state finance forecasts. Here he has predictions for Governor Mark White.

The staff at Poage Library really appreciates and depends on the work of student assistants, so we wanted to introduce them to you and the projects they are working on.

While the official “Meet the Bears” was on August 19th, we are excited to watch Duke’s Blue Devils meet our Bears this Saturday! This Baylor Bears cartoon is located in our Bob Darden cartoon collection, and was drawn by Darden circa 1975. We’ll be featuring at least one cartoon from the Darden collection on #CartoonTuesday each month this Fall.

Peace. Love. Archives.
It’s 8/8/18, so that means a special #ArchivesHashtagParty! This month’s theme is #Archives80s, and what could be more 1980s than Representative Marvin Leath meeting President Ronald Reagan? This photo was taken May 1981. Swipe left to see Rep. Leath with Rep. Poage – Leath was Poage’s successor in representing Texas’ 11th District from 1979-1991.

Student summer projects update #2: Our Dowdy Intern Kendall has been completing the processing of the Texas Government, Legislative series of the Jack Hightower papers. She is also working on planning for iEngage, which is now in two weeks! This year’s theme at Poage Library asks the question: “How do citizens investigate community issues?”

Can we call it #TransportationTuesday? (We do love alliteration!) One of our projects this summer has been transportation research for one of five iEngage stations. The kids will be exploring root causes of local transportation issues. In Rep. Poage’s collection, we found a folder of material from the 1970s advertising the Transbus, designed to be more accessible for all people due to its wide doors, lower floors, and fewer steps.

Today is graduate student Jake’s last day with us at Poage Library. We are grateful for all of his hard work, including processing the Alan Steelman papers and the Marvin Leath papers, and we wish him well as he moves away to begin his Ph.D. studies. Sic’Em, Jake!

Student summer projects update #1: Our graduate assistant Kristina has been finalizing the John Dowdy papers and moving them to document boxes. Don’t they look nice?! She is also hard at work doing research to get us ready for iEngage on July 31st, when 100 kids come through our doors!

Even though we’ve passed the 4th of July, many will continue to celebrate this weekend. This month’s #ArchivesHashtagParty is all about #ArchivesFestivals, and what better festival is there than a good old-fashioned Independence Day parade!? In this photo, Rep. Chet Edwards participates in a Granbury, TX parade in 2009.

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.
