Biographical Sketch

Walter Ewing Long was born in Fannin County, Texas on 1 November 1886. He graduated as valedictorian of Ladonia High School in 1905. Long worked various jobs as a cotton cropper, dairy farmer and a waiter to finance his education at Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He also received his master's degree at Austin College and then went on to receive a law degree from the University of Texas in 1914.

Long served as secretary, and then manager, of the Austin Chamber of Commerce in Austin, Texas from 1915-1949. During his service at the Chamber of Commerce, Long was responsible for starting the campaign for the present council-manager form of city government, championing city planning, raising money to purchase the site for the State School for the Blind, and initiating the campaign for city acquisition of Barton Springs. He was also the founder of the Texas Legislative Service. Most notably, Long helped to create the Colorado River Improvement Association, which would come to be known as the Lower Colorado River Authority.

Long was a member of the Austin Rotary Club, the Colorado River Improvement Association, Texas Fine Arts Association, Texas Association of Commerce, Texas Chamber of Commerce Managers Association and a committee which was instrumental in getting the Army to build Camp Swift at Bastrop. A foremost authority on Austin and Central Texas history, Long wrote about 40 books and hundreds of articles.

In 1951, Long was named "Austin's Most Worthy Citizen." He was also a recipient of the Texas Distinguished Service Medal and Scroll from the Texas Heritage Foundation. In 1954, Long was appointed to the State Library and Archives Commission. Although Long was a member of the American Bar Association for more than 40 years, he never had a case.

Long died from cancer in Austin, Texas on 8 November 1973.

Scope and Contents

The Walter Long papers are divided into three series, Personal, Literary Productions and Chamber of Commerce. However, there is a considerable amount of overlap between Long's personal interests and his professional life and that is evident in the records.

Long's Personal Papers contain text and photographic materials arranged alphabetically by subject relating to Austin and Texas places, people and events. The small amount of text materials (1.2 linear feet) consist of lists, clippings, correspondence, notes and ephemera pertaining to local history and span the years 1850 to 1967. Long's personal papers also contain collected photographs that date from circa 1860 to the 1940s. The photographs document an array of interests, including churches, homes, boats, water scenes, and transportation. Of note are a series of photographs of the McKinley-Roosevelt parade in Austin in 1905. There are also scrapbooks and photo albums that date from the early 1900s that document various Austin families, including the Caswell, Hocker, and Teel families. Some of the scrapbook and album material is loose and rehoused in folders. Some negatives exist, however many are copy negatives of the prints in the collection. There are 31 stereographs that document Austin, San Antonio, and areas outside of Texas.

Literary Productions include subject files relating to the research, writing and printing of Walter Long's numerous books and writings relating to local Austin, Texas and Central Texas history. Specific titles include Camp Swift, Dog Tales, Flood to Faucet, For All Time To Come, Hitching Post, I'm Much Obliged, Longhorn Crossing, Magnesium Plant, Miss Fanny, Old Sayings, Stephen F. Austin's Legacies, Stonewall's Foot Cavalrymen, and Wings Over Austin. Files consist of correspondence, clippings, scrapbooks, reports, notes, photographic materials and book proofs. The materials span from 1910-1967.

The Chamber of Commerce materials (1909-1965) make up the majority of the collection and pre-date and span Walter Long's career as manager of the Austin Texas Chamber of Commerce. The records are arranged into subject files, correspondence and photographs. The subject files, dated 1914-1965, are arranged alphabetically and are a mixture of Chamber of Commerce internal business records (administrative and financial) as well as materials related to the Chamber's efforts to promote Austin's economic development and ensure that Austin is an attractive and safe place to live and visit. The Chamber's internal administrative records include annual reports; membership lists and ledgers; financial records including budgets, dues income, salary reviews; mailing lists; resignation letters; correspondence and distributed information from professional organizations such as the Texas Chamber of Commerce Managers and the United States Chamber of Commerce; and meeting minutes for the executive committee and other committees (internally also referred to Bureaus) such as the Business Bureau, City Planning Bureau, Convention and Publicity Bureau, Health Committee; Educational Bureau, Fire Waste Committee, Hunting Information Bureau, Industrial Bureau, and Publicity Committee. In addition, there are files of materials pertaining to a wide range of projects, programs and issues of concern to the Chamber which consist of correspondence, flyers, reports, calendars of events, business directories, and newsletters. Of particular interest are the files related to the City Planning Enabling Acts legislation being considered during the 1920s and the subsequent push by the Chamber to create a City Plan Commission and adopt a City Plan; post-war city planning in the 1940s; efforts to promote farming and agriculture in the 1920s and attract industry in the 1940s; and concerns about the construction of roads and highways to improve the transportation system in Central Texas.

There are also a significant amount of correspondence files that are arranged by date and then alphabetically, rather than by subject. Included are letters sent and received by Long's predecessor, W. L. Vining, as well as Walter Long, dating from 1909 to 1948. In addition, the Austin Chamber of Commerce collected a variety of photographs documenting Austin homes, buildings, streets, and businesses. The photographs date from 1872 to the 1960s. Additionally, there are photographs from the 1940s of Chamber of Commerce staff members.
