Biographical Note

Born in 1906 in Dallas, Texas, Julien Lon Tinkle earned recognition as one of the Texas literati. He received his A.B. (1927) and A.M. (1932) degrees from Southern Methodist University, and subsequently started his teaching career there in 1932. Tinkle studied abroad in France, and received a diplome de phonetique from the Sorbonne in 1933. He later attended Columbia University from 1936-1937 and was a guest professor of French in 1947.

Tinkle held two jobs simultaneously throughout his life: Book critic for the Dallas Morning News; and SMU professor of French and Comparative Literature. Additional jobs included Southwest Press editor (1927-1929), and Southwest Review managing editor (1932-1933). Tinkle was very active in the Dallas arts community and co-founded the Margo Jones Theatre, Dallas Friends of the Library, and Community Course. He was also president of the Texas Institute of Letters for four terms.

Thirteen Days to Glory is considered Tinkle’s most famous literary work, since it inspired a film with John Wayne (1960) and a television movie (1987).

Major works include:

  • Thirteen Days to Glory: The Siege of the Alamo (1958)
  • The Cowboy Reader (1959)
  • The Story of Oklahoma (1962)
  • Tresor Nobel: An Anthology of French Nobel Prize-Winners (1963)
  • The Valiant Few: Crisis at the Alamo (1964)
  • Miracle in Mexico: The Story of Juan Diego (1965)
  • The Key to Dallas (1965)
  • J. Frank Dobie: The Makings of an Ample Mind (1968)
  • Mr. De : A Biography of Everette Lee DeGolyer (1970)
  • Texas: A Picture Tour (1973)
  • An American Original: The Life of J. Frank Dobie (1978)

In 1939 Lon Tinkle married Maria Ofelia Garza in Mexico City and had three sons: Jon, Alan, and Anthony. Their house was designed by O’Neil Ford and located in “Culture Gulch,” which was an area of University Park that included artists Ed Bearden, Jerry Bywaters, and John Chapman. Lon Tinkle died at home in Dallas, Texas in 1980.

Processing Information

Sixteen boxes were processed by Houston Mount, George Diaz, and other students in 2006. Paul H. Santa Cruz and Houston Mount drafted a finding aid a year later. Additional books and materials were donated by the Tinkle family in 2013.

Two accessions were transferred to the collection, as they were individual drafts of Mr. De given to the library by Lon Tinkle prior to 2004. Russell Martin processed the publishers’ catalogs in series 10 and arranged them alphabetically. The collection was not arranged in any particular order, and due to many students processing the collection, Cynthia Franco re-processed the collection and created folder titles in 2018. She wrote and encoded the finding aid in 2019.
