Series Description

From the Series:

Series XI contains oversized materials. Its first subseries includes non-newspaper materials that range from campaign materials for U.S. Senator Ralph W. Yarborough, to photographs, a map, and an audio disc. The other subseries all contain newspapers, ranging from the 1920s to the 1970s. Two subseries include newspapers featuring articles by Dudley Dobie, Sr.’s cousin, J. Frank Dobie. The remaining subseries have a wide variety of newspaper issues from across Texas. Many are fragile. A significant amount of the issues are commemorative, special, historical editions published upon the anniversary of the founding of the city, county, state, or newspaper itself. (An example is the Dallas Morning News’ 1936 commemorative issue regarding the Texas Centennial Exposition – for which Dobie was on staff.) Normal editions often also include historical articles. Some represent a newspaper’s inaugural period of publishing (as with the 1971-1972 issues of The North San Antonio Times).
