Facilities for Graduate Work

Graduate students in history have access to major collections of research materials in a number of fields. The Benson Latin American Collection of printed and manuscript materials is of international importance for research and study in the history of Latin America in general and Mexico in particular. The Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum and its Oral History Project offer an unprecedented wealth of material for the study of United States history in the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson years. In the Perry-Castañeda Library, the Harry Ransom Center, and the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History are major collections related to the history of science, twentieth-century writers, British and European history, and the history of Texas, the South, and the West, and documents of the United States and of the United Nations. The Natchez Trace Collection in the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History provides an unparalleled resource for the study of the history of the lower Mississippi region in the nineteenth century. At the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest near the University campus are the national archives of the Episcopal Church, containing books and manuscripts from the colonial period onward.
