The Vertical File of the Archives and Information Services Division includes material from newspapers, magazines, Texas documents, pamphlets, and maps which includes information about Texas people, places, things, and events.

The purpose of the collection is threefold:

1.To provide articles that are historical, summary, or comprehensive in nature, containing an overview on a particular Texas topic.

2.To lead a researcher to additional material on a subject by including bibliographies, cross references, and dates of significance.

3.To be a source of ready reference facts and statistics for use by staff.

The vertical file does not aspire to be a comprehensive source of information on any topic. It does not serve as a current events tool nor as a day-by-day chronology of any given event.

In the index, headings in ALL CAPS denote specific file folders in the Vertical File. Some folders may contain only a page or two of clippings while others may include several. The Vertical File is available for public use.
