Historical Note

Founded in 1970 to coordinate the activities of environmental groups (over 40 in 1977) in public education and to sponsor "Public Inquiries" - open discussions for industry and concerned citizens of local environmental issues, the Citizens' Environmental Coalition (CEC) is still active and publishes a monthly newsletter.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of the papers of the Coalition from 1971 to 1981, and the CEC Education Fund Inc. (CECEF). It includes the following types of information: correspondence, newsletter (Newsleaf), minutes of meetings, financial information, grants, reports, special events, Task Forces, educational programs, hearings and inquiries stemming from its active involvement in the environmental concerns of the Upper Gulf Coast area, in particular the Toxic Waste Task Forces and the bayou and open space preservation.

The topics of the reports, hearings, inquiries and task forces include: land subsidence and waste water refuse, open beaches, mass transit, flood plain management, air quality, energy conservation, fluoridation, ship channel pollution, Matagorda Island conservation, air pollution/emission control and toxics task forces.


The collection is arranged as follows: Boxes 1 thru 4 are the business papers arranged chronologically; Box 5 contains CEC reports and information on various environmental concerns; Boxes 6 through 13 contain extensive reports of the Toxic Waste Task Forces and Boxes 14 & 15 contain odd numbers of a wide range of environmental periodicals in Texas (except for folder 7 thru 14 of Box 15 which are non-Texas publications).
Box 16 contains 75 photographs and slides of CEC activities and Houston views, especially of Buffalo Bayou.
The last 7 boxes contain reports and surveys relating to the concerns of the Task Forces.
