The Texas Music Collection contains research files on the history of Texas music, particularly musicians and record labels, including the administrative and financial files of Duke/Peacock Records of the Houston area. Newspaper clippings, photographs, financial records, songbooks, and administrative files comprise the research files.
The collection is divided into six series, which are arranged in order of volume of material, from most to least represented: Artists; Production and Events; Geography; Genres; Reference; and Ephemera. The Production and Events series is further divided into five subseries: Labels and Studios; Radio; Producers; Venues; and Record Shops.
Open for research.
