Agency History

The Office of Texas Attorney General (OAG) was first established by executive ordinance in 1836. The attorneys general of the Republic of Texas were presidential appointees by act of the First Congress, October 6, 1836. The practice of executive appointment continued during the first years of statehood, but in 1850 the office became elective. Per the Constitution of 1876, the attorney general is one of seven officers constituting the executive department of Texas state government (Article VI, Section 22). Effective in 1975, the term of office was extended from two to four years (Senate Joint Resolution 1, 62nd Texas Legislature, Regular Session).

The attorney general is the lawyer for the people of Texas and is charged by the Texas constitution to defend the laws and the constitution of the state of Texas, represent the State in litigation, and approve public bond issues. To fulfill these responsibilities, the OAG serves as legal counsel to all boards and agencies of state government; issues legal opinions when requested by the governor, heads of state agencies and other officials and agencies as provided by Texas statutes; sits as an ex-officio member on numerous state committees and commissions; and defends challenges to state laws and suits against both state agencies and individual employees of the state.

The OAG has taken on numerous other roles through the years. Texas statutes contain nearly 2,000 references to the attorney general. In addition to its constitutionally prescribed duties, the OAG files civil suits upon referral by other state agencies. In some circumstances, the attorney general has original jurisdiction to prosecute violations of the law, but in most cases, criminal prosecutions by the attorney general are initiated only upon the request of a local prosecutor.

Although the attorney general is prohibited from offering legal advice or representing private individuals, he serves and protects the rights of all citizens of Texas through the activities of the various divisions of the agencies. Actions that benefit all citizens of this state include enforcement of health, safety, and consumer regulations; educational outreach programs; and protection of the rights of the elderly and disabled. The attorney general is also charged with the collection of court-ordered child support and the administration of the Crime Victims' Compensation Fund. The attorney general assists the secretary of state and the governor in extradition proceedings, approves the form of official papers, appears before grand juries in an informational capacity, initiates inquiries into suspected illegal activities, and prepares legal instruments for state agencies. The attorney general has regulatory or punitive civil powers over corporations and must protect charitable trusts through court action. Taxation and property are significant to the work of the office; the attorney general sues for recovery of taxes owed to the state of Texas and protects the public with respect to abandoned property that escheats to the state. In addition, the office acts against persons or corporations violating the state environmental protection laws or illegally extracting natural resources, enforces the state's antitrust laws, and prosecutes persons who mishandle state funds.

Mark White Biographical Sketch

Mark Wells White Jr. was born in Henderson, Texas on March 17, 1940. He attended Houston public schools and Baylor University, earning a bachelor's degree in business administration in 1962 and a law degree from Baylor Law School in 1965. White worked briefly in a private legal practice in Houston before serving three years as an assistant attorney general. In 1969, he returned to Houston to a private practice until 1973 when Governor Dolph Briscoe appointed him secretary of state. White resigned as secretary of state in October 1977 in order to run for attorney general.

Serving as attorney general from 1979 to 1983, White co-chaired the Federal-State Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee and was a member of the Governor's Organized Crime Prevention Council. Concerned with energy matters, White was a member of the Texas Energy and Natural Resources Advisory Council (TENRAC) and served on an ad hoc committee appointed by Governor William P. Clements to comment on a national energy policy and the impact of coal severance taxes and a windfall profits tax on oil and gas.

Additionally, White was involved with the federal government on such issues as the crude oil windfall profit tax, federal regulation of railroads, natural gas and a national energy policy, and the withholding of federal highway funds to ensure a certain percentage of minority business enterprises. White also brokered an agreement with the US Department of Education over charges of racial segregation in the state colleges and universities.

In 1982, he ran against and defeated Governor Bill Clements in the governor's race. Governor Mark White served as head of the state from January 1983 to January 1987. During his term in office, White focused his energies on education reform ( including no-pass/no-play) and utility rate regulation. White also concentrated on economic development and the appointment of minorities to positions on his staff and in the government.

White was defeated by Clements in the 1986 election and returned to private life after his term ended in January 1987. He ran for governor in the Democratic primary in 1990 but lost to Ann Richards.

Mark White and his wife, Linda Gale Thompson, had two sons and a daughter. On August 5, 2017, White died in Houston.

Scope and Contents of the Records

As the chief legal officer of the state of Texas, the attorney general is charged by the Texas Constitution to defend the laws and the Constitution of the State of Texas, represent the State in litigation, and approve public bond issues. Records of Mark White's tenure as attorney general from 1979 to 1983 include correspondence, memorandums, newspaper clippings, photographs, legal briefs, court opinions, press releases, and newsletters, dating 1975-1982, undated, bulk 1979-1982.

Subjects include the drafting and explanation of attorney general opinions; filings of lawsuits; analyzing proposed legislation at the state and federal levels; enforcement of the Deceptive Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Act; the state's criminal justice system, especially Ruiz v. Estelle and the issue of prison overcrowding; energy issues such as the Bay of Campeche oil spill, the federal oil and gas windfall profits tax, and legality of coal severance taxes charged by other states on exports of their coal; Minister Lester Roloff's children's home and the enforcement of the Child Case Licensing Act; public education issues such as bilingual education in public schools, busing of schoolchildren for desegregation purposes, and a federal investigation of the higher education system in Texas for violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and drug paraphernalia and illegal drug dealing.

Correspondents include the president of the United States, congresspersons, US Secretary of Education Terrell Bell, federal agencies, attorneys generals from other states, Texas state senators and representatives, Texas Attorney General staff, members of the press, and the general public.

The first series, Correspondence and newspaper clippings, is arranged by format, then chronologically. The bulk of the series consists of correspondence arranged alphabetically by topic.

The second series,Correspondence and subject files, is arranged into two groups: filed in 1979 and filed in 1980-1982. Within both groups, further arrangement is alphabetical by topic. The filed in 1979 group is only partially co mplete; it is missing files A-B, I-M, P-Sn, and V-Z. The filed in 1980-1982 group is also incomplete, having only a few or no files from A-B, I-N, Q-R, and T-Z.

Researchers should note that due to the agency's filing practices, there is overlap between the two series.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.
