The W. R. Poage Legislative Library, located adjacent to the Moody Memorial Library and Jones Library on the campus of Baylor University, is a special collections library and research facility that is part of the Baylor Libraries system. The building was dedicated in 1979 in honor of Congressman W. R. "Bob" Poage, Baylor alumnus and retired public official whose career spanned over 50 years. The facility houses the Baylor Collections of Political Materials, the Graduate Research Center, and the Bob Bullock Archives.
We work with a variety of partners to guide and enhance our archival work.
Baylor Collections of Political Materials
The Baylor Collections of Political Materials (BCPM), located on the first floor of the W. R. Poage Legislative Library, is an active congressional center dedicated to the study of the legislative process.
Bob Bullock Archive
The Bob Bullock Collection spans the years 1917-2003 with the bulk of the materials focusing on Bob Bullock’s political career from 1975-1999, when he was Comptroller of Public Accounts and the Lieutenant Governor of Texas.
Through our research collections and programs we inspire the next generation of students and others to civic engagement as a vital part of what it means to be a representative democracy.
