Are you wondering when the recent Texas wildfires were officially declared a state disaster? Or interested in a copy of Sam Houston's inaugural address? Take a look at the library's Texas Governors Database. It includes biographical information and dates of service for all of Texas' chief executives, from J. Pinckney Henderson in 1846 up to current Governor Rick Perry. In addition, each governor's page provides links to full-text copies of their speeches, executive orders, proclamations, vetoes, and other official documents. The searchable database indexes documents by type, session, and bill and lets you search across multiple governors. The database is a work in progress and we're still tracking down documents for some governors, so check with the library if you don't see a document you are looking for.
