March Papers Donated to BCPM

Papers of Caso March (1911-1985) were donated to the Baylor Collections of Political Materials this spring by his son, Ben March of Dallas, executive director for the North Texas office of Baylor University Development.

As a student from 1929 to 1934, Caso March obtained BA, MA and LLB degrees from Baylor. He served as an attorney with the Federal Power Commission from 1934-1942 and became a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of Texas in 1934 and the Supreme Court of the United States in 1937. March also taught at Baylor Law School from 1946-1948 and ran for governor of Texas in 1946, 1948 and 1950.

Most of the materials are from the 1930s to the early 1950s and trace March's course from college at Baylor to his three runs for state governor. Also included are a few items from his early days in high school in Fort Worth and several items documenting his time with the Federal Power Commission, his service in the military during World War II, his time with Baylor as a law professor, and campaign materials from his races and other political campaigns of the late 1940s and early 1950s.
