Agency History

The Public Welfare Act of 1939 (Senate Bill 36, 46th Texas Legislature, Regular Session) created the Texas Department of Public Welfare. Previously, the Child Welfare Division of the Board of Control (established in 1931 but not funded until 1935), the Texas Relief Commission (1933-1934, later part of the Board of Control, 1934-1939), and the Old Age Assistance Commission (1936-1939) had performed parts of the new agency's functions. The Department of Public Welfare (DPW) became the Department of Human Resources (DHR) in 1977 (Senate Bill 1325, 65th Legislature, Regular Session), and the Department of Human Services (DHS) in 1985 (Senate Bill 351, 69th Legislature, Regular Session). The functions of the agency grew to include state and federal services for low-income families with children, and elderly or disabled persons, as well as regulate long-term care facilities and administer programs for survivors of family violence and victims of natural disasters.

The governing Board of Public Welfare (later called the Board of Human Resources, and then the Board of Human Services) was composed of three members (expanded to six members in 1989), appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate, for overlapping six-year terms. The board appointed the chief administrative officer, called variously the Executive Director of Public Welfare, the Commissioner of Public Welfare (beginning in 1941), the Commissioner of Human Resources, or the Commissioner of Human Services.

Over the years the administrative structure of the agency has undergone significant and frequent changes. A consistent feature of the department, however, has been the division of work between the state offices (which develop and coordinate programs) and the regional offices (which actually deliver the services). House Bill 2292 (78th Legislature, Regular Session, 2003) merged 12 state health and human services agencies into five, officially abolishing the Texas Department of Human Services, and dividing its functions between two state agencies: the newly created Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS), and the already existing Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

Burton Hackney served as chairman of the Texas State Board of Public Welfare from 1958 to 1967, before he was appointed commissioner of the Department of Public Welfare in 1968. He served briefly as commissioner until 1971 when he accepted a position in the Governor's Office in Comprehensive Health Planning.

Jerome Chapman and Randy Pendleton served as deputy commissioners of the Texas State Board of Public Welfare, under the supervision of Burton Hackney and Raymond Vowell.

Scope and Contents of the Records

These files document the work of the Executive Office of the Texas Department of Public Welfare (DPW), predecessor of the Texas Department of Human Resources (DHR) and the Texas Department of Human Services (DHS), which administered state and federal programs serving low-income families with children, and elderly or disabled persons (including: temporary financial assistance for basic family needs, nutritional assistance, access to healthcare and nursing home and community-based care); regulated long-term care facilities; and administered programs for survivors of family violence and victims of natural disasters. These records consist of central files from the executive offices of the Texas Department of Public Welfare, dating 1943-1977, and are specifically the files of commissioner Burton Hackney (1960s-1971), and Deputy Commissioners Jerome Chapman (1960s-1976) and Randy Pendleton (1973). Some records include correspondence, planning records, personnel materials, and administrative records for different programs within DPW, such as the Health, Education, and Welfare Department (HEW) (1960-1974), the Children's Bureau of HEW (1943-1970), the Bureau of Health Insurance, and the Texas Medical Assistance Program. The bulk of materials are subject files from 1972-1974 which encompass administrative records and personnel files.

Restrictions on Access

Because of the possibility that portions of these records fall under Public Information Act exceptions including, but not limited to, names, home addresses and other identifying information (Texas Human Resources Code, Section 12.003); medical records (Texas Government Code, Section 552.101, information confidential by law, Texas Occupations Code, Section 159.002(d)); and other client information (Texas Human Resources Code, 21.012, 42 Code of Federal Regulation, 431.301-431.307, and 45 Code of Federal Regulations, 5b.1-5b.13), an archivist must review these records before they can be accessed for research. The records may be requested for research under the provisions of the Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552). The researcher may request an interview with an archivist or submit a request by mail (Texas State Library and Archives Commission, P. O. Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711), fax (512-463-5436), email (Dir_Lib@tsl.texas.gov), or see our web page (http://www.tsl.texas.gov/agency/customer/pia.html). Include enough description and detail about the information requested to enable the archivist to accurately identify and locate the information. If our review reveals information that may be excepted by the Public Information Act, we are obligated to seek an open records decision from the Attorney General on whether the records can be released. The Public Information Act allows the Archives ten working days after receiving a request to make this determination. The Attorney General has 45 working days to render a decision. Alternately, the Archives can inform you of the nature of the potentially excepted information and if you agree, that information can be redacted or removed and you can access the remainder of the records.

Restrictions on Use

Most records created by Texas state agencies are not copyrighted. State records also include materials received by, not created by, state agencies. The researcher is responsible for complying with U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17 U.S.C.).
