Scope and Content Note

The R. D. and Margaret S. Warden Collection is a collection of materials reflecting the Warden's interest in the art and history of the Western United States. The collection was purchased in 1973 from R.D. Warden and Margaret S. Warden through International Bookfinders of California. Additional items were transferred to UTSA over the years after the initial purchase. The items purchased included approximately 8100 volumes and 7 feet of pamphlets, maps, and brochures now housed in the Library at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Materials are dated from 1835 to 1990 and include brochures and maps for state and national parks of the Western and Northwestern states; art prints, gallery guides, exhibition catalogs, periodicals and prints (some reproduction) of art and artists of Western subjects; maps, government documents, tourist brochures, souvenir books, Native American history, and articles about the cities and regions of the American West. The collection itself is divided into three series: Art, History, and Personal.

The Art series includes artwork with a Western theme, in the form of original prints, print reproductions, photographs, posters, engravings, sketches, and artwork published in newspapers and periodicals. The series is divided into the following subseries: Artists and Art Periodicals. The Artists subseries is arranged alphabetically by the surname of the artist with the folders containing their artwork, exhibitions, and any written information on or especially attributed to them. Many famous Western artists are represented in this subseries, with a large portion of the artwork from Frederic Remington. The Art Periodicals subseries consists of various periodicals that focus primarily on Western art. It includes art magazines, gallery catalogs, conference journals, and a stamp collection.

The History series includes newspaper articles, pamphlets, maps, government documents, tourist brochures, souvenir books, Native American history, and items covering the cities and regions of the American West and Canada. The series is divided into the following subseries: People and Places. The People subseries is organized into five sections containing any written information on or especially attributed to: George A. Custer, J. Frank Dobie, Lyndon B. Johnson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Walter Prescott Webb. The Places subseries is organized by geographical regions and states. It contains histories, pamphlets, newspaper articles, brochures, maps, government documents, periodicals, poems and other ephemera that correspond to geographical areas and states in the American West and Canada. Much of the material covers the American West in general and the state of Montana. Within the materials for the state of Montana, Louis A. Parson's Metallurgy Trip Diary (1909) is an outstanding item. The diary details visits to the Washoe Smelter of the Anaconda Copper Mining Co. at Anaconda, Montana and to the Boston and Montana Consolidated Copper and Silver Mining Company Smelter at Great Falls, Montana. The diary includes an index, several drawings, and detailed descriptions of the operations of the smelters.

The Warden series is made up of items that are associated with the Wardens themselves. It includes catalogs, correspondence, photographs, printed materials, and sheet music.
