The Archives and Special Collections unit at Texas A&M University-San Antonio was founded with the acquisition of the first private collections, the Robert H. Thonhoff Collection and a collection of newspapers from La Prensa. It grew exponentially in 2016 when the Daughters of the Republic of Texas placed their Texas history research collection from the Alamo on loan to the university. Rare books and the University Archives are also included. Learn all about what can be found in these archives.
