Biographical Note

Max Hugo Starcke

Max Hugo Starcke (1884-1972), a central Texas civic and business leader, was general manager of the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) from 1940-1955. Starcke was one of the nation's outstanding authorities on water conservation and development of hydro-electric power, but his interests and influence extended into many areas including politics, city and state government, parks and recreation, charity projects, banking, and other businesses.

Born in the village of York's Creek (now known as Zorn) in Guadalupe County, Starcke attended public schools in Seguin. After two years at Texas A&M University, Starcke returned to Seguin and began his life-long involvement in civic development and community service. In 1909, he was elected alderman to the Seguin city council, and in 1924, Starcke began six consecutive terms (spanning fourteen years) as mayor of the city. During his years of service, Starcke was instrumental in improving Seguin's power and water systems. For his beautification programs and recreation development for Seguin, its citizen's honored him with the Max Starcke Park. During this period Starcke was also interested in business and founded the Farmers State Bank in Seguin.

In 1938, Starcke left Seguin to become the operations manager of LCRA, headquartered in Austin. In 1940, he became the first general manager of the LCRA and remained in that position until he retired in 1955. Under his direction the LCRA completed the series of dams forming the Highland Lakes (the dam at Marble Falls Lake was named the Max Starcke Dam) and initiated electric service with prominent central Texas leaders such as Lyndon B. Johnson, Alvin Wirtz, and Tom Connally. Starcke remained a consultant to LCRA after his retirement.

Max Starcke was a very active participant in civic and community services and served on the boards of numerous local and state-wide associations. Among the organizations with which he was affiliated as either officer, board member, or member were the Texas Water Conservation Association, the Texas Good Roads Association, Guadalupe County Fair Association, Texas Racing Association, and the Texas Economy Commission. Starcke's community and social interests included the YWCA, the Austin Rotary Club, the Texas Ten-Pin Bowling League, and the Austin Yacht Club.

Starcke married Evelyn Quinn, and in 1942 they had a daughter, Margaret Frances (Mrs. Margaret S. Woodruff). He had two daughters, Maxine (Mrs. Maxine Storzier) and Lucille Starcke by a previous marriage. Max Starcke died in 1972 at the age of 88.

Frank D. Quinn

Frank D. Quinn (1894-1971), brother-in-law of Max Starcke, was born on October 21, 1894 in Ackerman, Mississippi to David H. and May Tims Quinn. He married Margaret Montgomery in 1915. Before moving to Austin, Texas he served as the general manager of Delta Pipe and Land Co., president of Sal-Mar Oil Corporation and manager of the Sequin Chamber of Commerce (1934-1939). In 1939 he moved to Austin where, most notably, he was Executive Director and later Chairman of the Board of the Texas National Park. In this capacity he was involved with acquiring the land for Big Bend National Park. While in office, Quinn successfully kept the public informed and promoted good use of the Texas State Parks. In addition he served as the president of the Austin Chamber of Commerce, a member of the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Board, and was involved with the University Presbyterian Church, the Salvation Army and the United Fund. Margaret Quinn was also active in Austin civic and social life and centered her interest particularly in the Junior Helping Hand Home for Children.

Margaret Montgomery Quinn died On October 2, 1970. Frank David Quinn died on July 15, 1971 in Austin, Texas.

Scope and Contents

The Max Starcke series (1886-1971) includes correspondence, minutes, financial and legal documents, photographic materials, creative works, maps, charts, lists, and scrapbook materials that document Max Starcke's work at the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), his involvement in civic service, his business dealings in Seguin and Austin, and his personal affairs, 1881- 1971. This series is divided into four subseries: LCRA, Civic Service, Business Affairs, and Personal Affairs.

The LCRA subseries (1937-1954) comprises the bulk of the papers and have the richest documentation highlighting Starcke's years as general manager for LCRA. The papers include correspondence between Starcke and Lyndon B. Johnson for the years 1938-1951. Xerox copies of the Max Starcke/Lyndon B. Johnson correspondence from 1950- 1972 are housed at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in a collection entitled "Papers of Max Starcke". Also, included are correspondence with other men affiliated with LCRA, notably Senator Tom Connally, U.S. Secretary of the Interior J.A. Krug, Assistant Secretary of War Stuart Syminton, and Senator A.J. Wirtz who later worked with the U.S. Department of the Interior. Minutes, printed material, financial documents, and creative works supplement the correspondence and emphasize the development and operations of the LCRA while Starcke served as general manager. Topics of the papers include the rural electrification in central Texas, security and military protection of the hydro-electric plants, labor organization, legislation pertaining to the electrical plants and dams, operations and divisions of the LCRA, construction and care of the Highland Lakes, and economic conditions in central Texas.

The Civic Service subseries (1929-1955, undated) illuminate Starcke's six consecutive terms as mayor of Seguin, his activities on state and regional boards noting especially the Texas Planning Board, the Texas Centennial of Statehood Commission, and the Guadalupe County Fair Association and finally his associations with specific lobbying groups including the Texas Water Conservation Association and the Texas Good Roads Association both of which are extremely well documented. The records of specific charitable service, and social organizations in which Starcke was involved including YWCA, the Austin Yacht Club, and the Austin Rotary Club, span the short periods of time in which Starcke was involved with then (1-4 years).

The Business Affairs subseries (1886-1946) include legal and financial records of his property interests in Guadalupe County, insurance policies, receipts, and correspondence generated from his private business activities in Seguin and Austin. Included here are the papers collected from Starcke's duties as executor of the Maria Schramm estate as well as the papers from his receivership of the Iona Frazier vs. D.D. Baker law suit over oil property in Guadalupe County. A file on Max Starcke's father, Hugo Starcke, contains assorted financial and legal documents and is limited in terms of those records pertaining directly to Max Starcke.

The Personal Affairs subseries (1927-1961, undated) comprise the fourth group and is the most loosely documented. Included here are letters received from family and friends. Especially notable are the letters from his daughter Lucille. Copies of speeches Starcke delivered, cemetery plot statements, certificates of commendation, appointment books, and credit cards are included in this group.

The Frank D. Quinn series (1865, 1886, 1896, 1902, 1913-1971) documents both his personal and business affairs and contains correspondence, biographical materials and genealogical research, memorabilia, financial records and legal documents. The series is divided into two subseries: Personal Affairs and Business Affairs.

The Personal Affairs subseries (1865, 1886, 1896, 1902, 1913-1971) includes biographical information about Frank Quinn and his wife, Margaret Montgomery Quinn; correspondence with family members and close friends; genealogical research; family photographs; financial and real estate records; as well as memorabilia associated with their involvement with social and civic organizations and their personal lives. Though he and his wife Margaret had no children of their own, Frank Quinn was a diligent correspondent with his extended family. Among the family members with whom he wrote are: his grandfather Houston Quinn, his parents David H. Quinn and May Tims Quinn, and their four sons and a daughter - Tims B. Quinn (wife Mary, son Tims Alford Quinn), Harry H. Quinn (divorced from Ola Quinn, two daughters Julia May and Sarah Quinn), James E. Quinn (wife Mary, son James Houston Quinn "Little Jimmy"), and his sister Evelyn Starcke (husband Max, daughter Mary Frances). In addition, Frank Quinn had an interest in compiling the family's genealogical record (paternal Quinn, maternal Tims) and corresponded heavily with both direct and distant family members to retrieve that data and collect family photographs dating back to 1865. Two cousins in particular were influential in gathering the family history, Eugene C. "Chap" Tims (wife Maud) and Austin Tims. It was Eugene C. Tims who published the Tims family history that is included in the collection. The real estate records include abstracts of title for the Tobin & Johnson Addition and loan and deeds of trust documents. Assorted life insurance policies are included as well.

The Business Affairs subseries (1928-1968) contains a limited amount of materials regarding Frank's involvement with the Austin Motor Company, the Mid-South Lumber Company, Quinn Brothers Lumber, Sal-Mar Oil Corporation and the Texas State Parks Board. Included are newspaper clippings, expense reports, correspondence, company letterhead, charter of incorporation, resolutions and photographs. Of interest is a letter from the director of the United States Department of the Interior with the deed executed by Governor Coke Stevenson and Quinn conveying to the United States the land for Big Bend National Park.
