Historical Note

The Texas Bureau for Economic Understanding is a non-profit, non-political organization funded entirely by contributions from the business community. Its programs of education and educational assistance were developed under the name Better Business Bureau of Texas from October, 1948 to June, 1954, at which time its activities, members and assets were transferred to the newly chartered Texas Bureau of Economic Understanding. The original purpose of the TBEU, as stated in its charter, was to extoll the free enterprise system. In 1959, however, the Bureau's new director stated that the organization "was formed exclusively to support the teaching of Americanism in Texas public schools and its sole function is to provide financial support for such programs throughout the state."

Scope and Contents

Correspondence, minutes, financial documents, statistics, speeches, photographs, maps, newsletters, lists, newspaper clippings, charter, programs, certificates, reports, and printed material. Files and personal papers of the executive directors of Texas Bureau for Economic Understanding, especially longtime directors, R. H. Lawrence, 1950-1969, and Leon B. Blair, 1970-1979. Includes records of the Better Business Bureau of Texas, 1948-1954, and correspondence with the Texas Education Agency and Texas Education Association.



The records were received in fairly good order. The original chronological division was retained, resulting in the following series:
  • Series A. 1945-1960
  • Series B. 1960-1969
  • Series C. 1970-1984
Folders were arranged alphabetically within each series, and material within each folder was placed in chronological order.
