The Texas Governor’s Mansion served as the official residence of Texas Governor Rick Perry and his family for his term of office. Records in this series are financial records, lists, artwork and stationery used in various fundraising campaigns, presentations, correspondence, spreadsheets to track donor contributions, events files, memoranda, notes, reports, press clippings about the mansion fire, speeches, publications, grant applications, Public Information Act requests concerning the Texas Governor’s Mansion Restoration Fund (TGMRF), and related records pertaining to TGMRF, dated 2008-2014 and undated. Fundraising efforts conducted by the Daughters of the American Revolution and Daughters of the Republic of Texas are well represented as are those conducted at the Texas Conference for Women and a meeting of the Texas State Historical Association. Finally, these records also document the eventual dissolution of the various committees, campaigns, and boards established to raise money for the TGMRF upon completion of the restoration work.
