US TxSaT SC.036 · Collection · 1959-1975 (bulk)

This collection contains material created and assembled by Henry J. Graham concerning the efforts to stop the construction of the 281 North Expressway in San Antonio, Texas. Graham, along with his sister Wanda Ford and businessman Hal Dewar, was one of the leading organizers of this movement.

[Add brief history of the expressway stuff]

Graham's records of the Expressway opposition include a wide variety of formats, including correspondence, editorial writing, meeting notes, research, clippings, and ephemera. Correspondents include such notable figures as Lloyd Bentsen, O'Neil Ford, Wanda Ford, Henry B. González, Lady Bird Johnson, Maury Maverick, Boone Powell, Peggy Tobin, and John Tower.

In addition to Graham's records, the collection includes files created by businessman Hal Dewar and local Sierra Club president Anthony Athens. Following Dewar's death in 1975, Graham had suggested that an archives documenting the opposition efforts be assembled in his memory; it is likely that the addition of these two series to the collection represented such efforts.
