Each month, we post a processing update to notify our readers about the latest collections that have finding aids online and are primed for research. Here are December’s finding aids:
- Grant and Donell Teaff Baylor Football collection, 1948-2006, undated (#3835): Contains correspondence, football programs, newspaper clippings, and audiovisual materials relating to Teaff’s career as head football coach at Baylor University. As usual, the materials described in the finding aid can be seen at The Texas Collection, but many of them also have been digitized as part of the Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive in collaboration with the Electronic Library. Check out game films, ribbons, and more in the online collection!
- John B. Herpin papers, 1851-1910 (#1636): Letters, tax deeds, and receipts about Herpin’s tract of land in Liberty County, Texas.
- Onnie Clem Jr. papers, 1944-1948 (#3939): Letters between Marine Corps members Onnie Clem Jr. and “Julie” Cecile L. Julian Clem during World War II. Also included is a transcribed interview with Onnie Clem Jr. about his experience during the Bataan Death March and as a prisoner of war for two and half years.

Could you please provide instruction on how to access BU’s list of Texas county personal property tax records for 1890 through 1910.
In 2011 & ’12, my local library in Fredericksburg, TX borrowed several such films, after I went online to the BU site, & chose those of interest.
I cannot presently recall exactly how to get back to that sector of your site, thus require instruction.
Many thanks, Bob
