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!

#OnThisDay in 1845, the Baylor University charter was officially signed under the Republic of Texas. Today, Poage Library joins with Baylor in commemorating Founders Day. Here at Poage, we’re proud of our many Baylor grads who have served in congressional office and donated their papers, as well as grads who have worked hard to make this library a great place of learning.

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.

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!

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 at Baylor Collections of Political Materials
