In a very real sense, vertical and local history files are a natural part of a library's holdings.  The Carnegie History Center local history files started as a part of the Clara Mounce Public Library's vertical files and moved to the Carnegie with the books.  What started as a few folders in one file drawer has grown to fill an increasing number of lateral files.  Subjects include businesses, ethnic groups, clubs, buildings, history, people and much more. 

The staff pulls files as requested and patrons may copy materials using the coin-operated machine on the second floor.  For those requesting copies by mail or email, there is a base charge of $5.00.  Please talk to a staff member for more information on charges when the file is large, or when more in-depth research is needed.  All checks or money orders (no cash) should be made out to the Friends of the Library.  For contact information, go to the Bryan-College Station Library web site.

Members of the Texas Research Ramblers are in the process of indexing the folders located in the files.  This will be an on-going project so keep checking back to see what subjects have been added.

*An asterisk indicates an estimated date or information that was obtained from other sources such as the Social Security Death Index or the Texas Birth or Death Indexes..

  From abstracts of Bryan newspapers that were done by the staff of the Carnegie History Center, several members of the Texas Research Ramblers Genealogical Society have indexed the records involving items of interest to family researchers such as birth, marriage, death and real estate transactions.

Since the abstractors did not always note the full reference of the item as to page, column and microfilm roll number and since the names of the early newspapers were not always identified clearly, the indexers have tried to indicate the data source to the best of their ability. Since the local newspaper was published at various times on a weekly basis or daily basis and the name changed from Bryan Weekly Eagle to Bryan Morning Eagle and then Bryan Eagle and at times the publications were concurrent, it was not an easy task to identify the exact source.

Given the date of publication, however, the staff at Carnegie History Center should be able to locate the reference. If a copy of the actual newspaper article is desired, the staff at the Carnegie History Center will attempt to locate the article and will make a copy for a fee. For more information you may contact the Carnegie staff through their web site at http://www.bcslibrary.org
