Wilmot Proviso Circulars

  • US TxSaT SC.003
  • Collection
  • 1847-1911

Collection of circulars, pamphlets, speeches, and other ephemera related to the Wilmot Proviso. The Wilmot Proviso was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on August 8, 1846 by Congressman David Wilmot as a provision of an appropriations bill. The proviso sought to ban slavery in any territory acquired from Mexico as a result of the Mexican-American War. The bill passed in the House but failed in the Senate. Although it did not pass into law, the Wilmot Proviso is credited with intensifying the slavery debate in the years leading up to the Civil War.

Miscellaneous Manuscripts

  • US TxSaT SC.000
  • Collection
  • 1805-2007

Special Collections and Archives regularly receives individual manuscripts and small groupings of materials that have historical significance, but are not substantial enough to necessitate a full finding aid. For administrative and storage purposes, these materials have been grouped into an artificial collection, the Miscellaneous Manuscripts Collection.

This collection consists of materials covering a wide range of topics and format. The contents reflect the breadth of the holdings in Special Collections and Archives, with a particular emphasis on Texas history. Materials may be added to the collection on an ongoing basis. Subject headings have been assigned at the item level.
