This page contains resources that were originally compiled for a GIS Design & Implementation course project that begins in the fall of 2015.
The catalogs also include a narrative section about the physical plant, which provides information about campus buildings. It's a good place to look for information about the opening of new buildings.
The following resources are not yet digitized, so they must be accessed via the University Archives. Contact UnivArchives@txstate.edu with questions and/or to make an appointment to view materials. Let us know how we can help!
Building and property files contain articles, photos, dedication programs, and other information about dates of building construction, demolition, and openings. Examples include the 1948 article about transforming Evans Field into a stadium and Dr. Pohl's description of historical campus sport fields in The Death of Evans Field: The End of an Era.
President's reports to the Board of Regents contain information sent to the board regarding campus construction. The reports include descriptions of property acquisitions, construction plans, dates, naming decisions.
Campus master plans from 1985 and 1995 are in the University Archives.
