  • 1894-1954

The W.B. (William Buckhout) Tuttle Papers consists largely of blueprints, correspondence, land leases, maps, newspaper articles, and reports. A few photographs are also found in this collection. The material spans from 1894-1954, but the bulk of the material is from the twentieth century. The majority of the material relates to military history of San Antonio and the surrounding area; specifically, Tuttle's involvement through the Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee in the development of Kelly Air Force Base, Randolph Field, and other military installations in the area. This collection also includes records of Tuttle's work in the creation of Big Bend National Park, his work for the War Production Board, and his work for the Quartermaster Advisory Committee. There is significant correspondence with other San Antonio business leaders, as well as government officials including Maury Maverick, Sr. In addition to family records and records of his own military service, the collection also includes copies of speeches and articles written by Tuttle on a variety of military-related topics.
