Francis Norman Wagner, born in 1910, lived in Nederland and Port Arthur most of his life. He wrote two books about life in Southeast Texas, and so amassed a large collection of newspaper clippings on topics related to the area. These clippings, and some other personal files related to his involvement in the Rotary Club, are collected here.
Herbert Roedenbeck (1881-1975) in the given course of time will suffice as one of the last legendary pioneers of this century; his achievements in agriculture and land development proved to be an integral part of the present demographic status of Southeast Texas. The greater portion of this collection consists of correspondence during the conclusive years from 1932 to 1970 while he was active in the oil leasing business.
