About the collections



Special Collections contains a wide array of unique materials with the mission of documenting the history of Southeast Texas, particularly Beaumont and the Big Thicket. The aspects that make this region distinct, including its dense forests, and economy based on lumber, ship building, and petroleum are well represented.

 

One of our chief collecting focuses is the Big Thicket with over 25 collections documenting this unique area. These collections include Larry Jene Fisher’s collection of over 8,000 recently scanned images which document Big Thicket fauna and flora, social life and customs, and timber and oil production.
