Agency History

The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (TSDHPT) was responsible for the building and maintenance of Texas roads and highways and for developing public mass transportation in the state from 1975 to 1991, when it was merged into the Texas Department of Transportation. State government oversight of transportation infrastructure in Texas began with the creation of the Texas State Highway Department by the 35th Texas Legislature in 1917 (House Bill 2, Regular Session) to administer a program of state aid to counties for the construction and maintenance of roads. Financial and advisory assistance for road-building to counties remained the department's major program until 1924, when it assumed active control of maintenance and construction of state highways under provisions of the Federal Highway Act of 1921. Passage of the Federal Highway Act of 1956 led to the initiation of the Interstate Highway System in Texas. In 1969 the state legislature created the Texas Mass Transportation Commission (House Bill 738, 61st Legislature, Regular Session) to "encourage, foster, and develop public mass transportation in Texas." This agency was merged with the former Highway Department in 1975, creating the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (Senate Bill 761, 64th Legislature, Regular Session). The department's responsibilities included designing, constructing, maintaining, and operating a comprehensive state highway system. An executive order of May 1976 transferred the Governor's Office of Traffic Safety to the department, and the agency became responsible for administering state and federal traffic safety acts and programs.

The governing body of TSDHPT was the Texas State Highway and Public Transportation Commission, composed of three members appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate for overlapping six-year terms. The positions were part-time salaried positions, and the chair (appointed by the governor) had the title of commissioner of transportation. The state was divided into 25 geographic districts (each composed of approximately ten counties), with each district administered by a district engineer.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) was created in 1991 (House Bill 9, 72nd Legislature, 1st Called Session), merging the Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation, the Texas Department of Aviation, and the Texas Motor Vehicle Commission. In 1997 the Texas Turnpike Authority merged with the Texas Department of Transportation (Senate Bill 370, 75th Legislature, Regular Session). The Texas Transportation Commission became the governing body of the agency.

In 1936, at the request of the legislature, the Travel and Information Division of the Texas Highway Department established information bureaus to counsel visitors drawn to Texas by the Texas Centennial celebration at Dallas. The information bureaus were so popular among visitors that the legislature asked that they be operated permanently as a service to tourists. TSDHPT continued this work and supported tourism by developing and disseminating information about recreational, historic, and scenic points of interest in Texas. As of 2017, the Travel Information Division (its new name under TxDOT) runs the information bureaus, called visitor centers, available at 12 tourist bureaus (also called Travel Information Centers) around the state. The division publishes the state's official travel magazine, Texas Highways, and distributes folders, posters, brochures, audiovisual programs, and news media materials. In 1985 the division also began promoting several anti-littering and cleaner air programs: Don't mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, Drive Clean across Texas, and the grassroots partnership Keep Texas Beautiful.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (TSDHPT) was responsible for the building and maintenance of Texas roads and highways and for developing public mass transportation in state from 1975 to 1991. These are records of the Travel and Information Division (Travel Information Division under TxDOT) and consist of 76 film projects on 16mm film, made up of 41 motion pictures, 487 motion picture components, 10 open reel audiotapes, and an audiocassette. Also included is a 35mm work print, These materials date 1963-1990, bulk 1970-1985. Projects comprise Texas tourism and other films, as well as radio and television programs, news stories, commercials, and public service announcements that were produced by the division. Subjects include bridge construction, anti-littering campaigns, tourist attractions around Texas, highway safety, highway funding, and public transportation.

TSDHPT was formed in 1975 when the Texas Legislature merged the Texas Highway Department and the Texas Mass Transportation Commission into this single agency. After 1991, TSDHPT was merged into the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). Both TSDHPT and the Texas Highway Department operated a Travel and Information Division that promoted travel to and within the state of Texas; highway safety; and anti-litter campaigns through the distribution of publications, audiovisual programs, and news media materials. The division also operated a free loan library of public service and tourism films, beginning with the Texas Highway Department in 1965 and running through 2005 under TxDOT.

Each film project may include only one motion picture or motion picture component or may be made up of many different motion picture components, such as work prints, internegatives, sound tracks, and film clips. Motion picture components may be dated later than the film's release date if they were reprinted after the release. On occasion, unused footage from one film may be intended for use in a later project. Not all projects were completed or released, such as film projects in the series Stock films. This series includes motion picture components that may have been used in complete projects or were kept as resources for future productions.

Throughout, project titles with known releases, copyright dates, or other evidence of completion are italicized in the inventory. Projects that seem to have been completed, but with no evidence of copyright or release, have titles in quotes (with the exception of an episode title of a completed series, which will appear in quotes before the italicized title of the series). Titles of projects that appear to be stock film or unfinished projects are not formatted. Projects with no known copyright or release dates have estimated dates that reflect when work appears to have stopped on a project. Film footage and running times of each reel are approximate. Running times of each reel are determined from film footage.

The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (TSDHPT) was responsible for the building and maintenance of Texas roads and highways and for developing public mass transportation in state from 1975 to 1991. The Travel and Information Division promoted keeping Texas roadsides free from litter and produced many public service announcements for television, radio, and roadside advertising. In 1977, it produced a short film titled A Litter MESSage, which was available from the division's lending library. In 1986, it began the anti-littering campaign Don't mess with Texas, producing over 60 television commercials starring Texas celebrities, along with radio ads and billboards. The entire run of television ads, radio spots, and billboards for the campaign are available on the Don't mess with Texas website. The first Don't Mess with Texas television commercial featured musician Stevie Ray Vaughan and is included in this series. (Note: The Stevie Ray Vaughan commercial is an episode title of a completed series, and appears in quotes before the italicized title of the series.) The records in this series consist of three film projects of 22 motion picture components dating 1974-1979, 1985-1986, and includes work prints, camera original footage, internegatives, and magnetic and optical sound tracks.

15.55 cubic ft.

The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (TSDHPT) was responsible for the building and maintenance of Texas roads and highways and for developing public mass transportation in state from 1975 to 1991. The Travel and Information Division promoted travel to and within the state and Texas tourism and produced several tourism films, including Texas, America's Funtier, which received a certificate of excellence in the 1970 Sunset Travel Film Festival; and Law West of the Pecos, a film still shown at the Judge Roy Bean Visitor Center in Langtry, Texas. Records in this series consist of 11 film projects, dating 1965-1966, 1969-1970, 1972-1973, 1975, 1977-1985. These projects are made up of 19 motion pictures and 213 motion picture components, including work prints, camera original footage, negatives, internegatives, and magnetic and optical sound tracks. Also included are a 35mm work print and one open reel audiotape.
Titles that were available through the division's film lending library include Festival Time in Texas, described as "A light-hearted romp through more than a dozen events where Texans congregate for fun. It captures the exuberance of celebrating Cajuns, the belting rhythm of deep soul music, fiery Mexican fiestas, and lots of down home entertainment where guitars and fiddles are king. "Missions of Texas, narrated by actor Ricardo Montalban that tells the "story of 10 missions from El Paso to the Piney Woods, built by the Indians and missionaries in the late 1700's," and Texas - Live the Legend, "frontier history, recreational activities and diverse cultures are portrayed against backdrops of scenic splendor and living heritage" (a book with the same title was also released in 1981). These film projects, along with Texas, America's Funtier and Texas, Land of Contrast include more than one finished print. Texas, Land of Contrast has both an English and Spanish version, while Texas - Live the Legend had versions of varying lengths that were printed for distribution.
