The Texas Constitutions Digitization Project was made possible by two $20,000 TexTreasures grants from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The first grant in 1999 enabled the Library to digitize and publish the historical Texas Constitutions. The second grant in 2002 funded the digitization and publication of Constitutional convention materials, as well as the creation of finding aids that facilitate better access to the Constitutions themselves.
The Tarlton Law Library gratefully acknowledges the assistance and cooperation of the Center for American History, The University of Texas at Austin, and its Director, Dr. Don E. Carleton, for allowing numerous items from its collections to be scanned for inclusion in the Texas Constitutions Digitization Project. We especially thank Katherine J. Adams, Associate Director, and Paulette Delahoussaye for their assistance with the bibliographies and scanning.
Thanks to the Handbook of Texas Online and its Managing Editor, Douglas E. Barnett, for permission to link with the Handbook's articles on the historic Texas constitutions.
The Texas Constitutions Digitization Project was carried out under the direction of Professor Roy M. Mersky, Harry M. Reasoner Regents Chair in Law, University of Texas School of Law, and Director of the Jamail Center for Legal Research.
