The Pat Neff Collection is housed in the Texas Collection at Baylor University. Pat Neff was Governor of Texas from 1921 to 1925 and President of Baylor University from 1932 to 1947. As Neff is an important figure in Texas politics in the 1920s and 1930s and in education in the 1930s and 1940s, his collection is among the most popular for research at the Texas Collection. This thesis includes a brief biography of Pat Neff, which will form the basis for the biographical note of the Neff Collection finding aid. This will be followed by a history of the collection, with emphasis on the recent processing project. Additionally, the thesis will include a proposal for digitization of portions of the collection.
