Senate Bill No. 103 provided for the establishment of a "State school west of the 98th meridian and north of the 29th parallel," thereby setting the ground work for the creation of Texas Technological School. Among the purposes of the school was to provide a "co-educational college giving thorough instruction in technology and textile engineering from which a student may reach the highest degree of education." The collection contains the applications, proposal and supplemental information submitted by 36 applicants for the location of the Texas Technological School. Several include black and white photographs, maps and blueprints. A few also have leather covers.
