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.

Scope and Contents of the Records

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. Records consist of bound volumes containing briefs to litigation in which the Texas Attorney General's office played a part or had an interest, dating 1913-1938. In general, briefs are those that the attorney general's office prepared; however, briefs from other parties are also present.

The majority of the cases are civil rather than criminal. The courts involved included state district courts, state Courts of Appeal, the Supreme Court of the State of Texas, the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas, US district courts, US circuit courts of appeals (especially the 5th Circuit) and the US Supreme Court. The focus of this litigation covers a variety of issues which faced the citizens and the state. Subjects include banking, conflicts with other states, oil and gas, railroads, taxation, and transportation.

The binding of these briefs was apparently authorized by each attorney general in office at the time of the litigation: B.F. Looney (1918), C.M. Cureton (1922), W.A. Keeling (1922-1925), Dan Moody (1925), Claude Pollard (1926-1929), Robert Lee Bobbitt (1929-1930), James V Allred (1931), and William McCraw (1935-1938). Apart from chronology, no relationship seems to exist between and among the briefs included in each volume, until volumes 62 through 82, wherein only related cases were bound together. Volumes 17, 21 through 50, 52, 54, 57, 59, 67, and 74 are missing.

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.
