Houston History Archives

Houston History Archives supports research in U.S. history with primary sources on growth and development along the Gulf Coast. Collections cover energy management and development with resources that support exploration of Houston as an international energy center. Environmental collections reveal alternative narratives to Houston’s unmitigated pro-growth reputation and offer documentation of urban planning, flood management, and green space preservation. Collections also reflect Houston’s ethnic diversity with materials on the desegregation of downtown and evolution of Houston’s ethnic communities. A growing collection of oral histories supports these key areas and varieties of other topics.
