Through stewardship, scholarship, and outreach, the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at The University of Texas at Austin increases knowledge and fosters exploration of our nation’s past.
As a leading history research center, we collect, preserve, and make available documentary and material culture evidence encompassing key themes in Texas and U.S. history. Researchers, students, and the public mine our collections for a wide range of academic, professional, and personal uses. Our collections also inspire our own projects, including books, exhibits, programs, films, and educational materials. The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History is an organized research unit and public service component of The University of Texas at Austin.
