The Texas Collection recently opened the "Come to Texas" exhibit that features antique promotional brochures unique to Texas. This includes enticing pictures, promotional brochures and other publications used to draw people to the Lone Star State between the 1880s and Great Depression.
Everyone is welcome to stop by the Texas Collection in the Carroll Library building to view this wonderful exhibit. This will run until Baylor Homecoming in November 2011, at which time another exhibit featuring homecoming memorabilia will be presented.
In addition to the main exhibit, accompanying materials are displayed at the entrance to the Reading Room and many of the promotionals may also be viewed online through our Digital Collections.
