Scope and Content
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 focus on educating the public, particularly school-age children, about the history of the Texas Governor’s Mansion. They include educational curricula, digital images from a taping done by the Texas Education Agency, a children’s activity book created by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and related records (such as speeches, emails, and digital images), dated 2008-2013. Of particular interest is the This House is Your House curriculum created by Sally Hunter and intended to place the history of the Governor’s Mansion within the broader context of Texas history.
Formats of the original electronic files include word processing files (.doc and .pdf), spreadsheets (.xls), sound files (.mp3), graphic images (.tif and .jpg), emails, XML file (.xml), and web pages (.html). Digital files presented for public use will generally be PDF for text documents and .jpg for images. Files in their original format are available on request; restrictions may apply.
