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.

On Tuesday, Mary attended the annual luncheon in honor of former Lt. Governor Bob Bullock. His birthday is July 10, and he is remembered each year at the State Cemetery. He had a deep love for his home state, and is known for the famous line “God Bless Texas.” We are fortunate to have his papers at Poage Library! “Only death will end that love affair with Texas.”
-Bob Bullock, June 5, 1997

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 at Baylor Collections of Political Materials
