Title: Aerospace, Aviation, Defense, and Texas Military Preparedness Commission files
Description: The Economic Development and Tourism Division (EDT) of the Texas Governor's Office under Governor Rick Perry specialized in encouraging business expansion and relocation within the state of Texas, as well as promoting domestic and international tourism via partnership with local convention and visitors bureaus, chambers of commerce, and private travel-related organizations. The records consist of paper, audio and video recordings, and electronic materials generated by the Aerospace, Aviation, Defense, and Texas Military Preparedness Commission, a subdivision of the EDT, dating 1997-2014. The principal role of this subdivision is promotion of retention, development, and expansion of aerospace, aviation, and defense businesses in Texas. Topics covered include closed projects, strategic planning, relationships with the defense related businesses, and correspondence with local government. The materials are split into two subseries: one dealing with aerospace company projects, and one dealing with the Texas Military Preparedness Commission (TMPC), which is a subordinate body tasked with advocating for the retention and expansion of U.S. military assets and associated defense-related businesses within the territory of Texas. Types of records include incoming and outgoing correspondence, memorandums, economic impact statements, reports, transcripts, agendas, slide presentations, videotapes, audiocassette tapes, speeches, spreadsheets, press releases, strategic plans, guides, and digital photograph files. Organizations represented include the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Vought Aircraft Industries Inc., and Safire Aircraft.
