Toby M. Myers and Deborah D. Tucker Texas Council on Family Violence Records, 1974-2001 | University of Houston Libraries
The Toby M. Myers and Deborah D. Tucker Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) Records contain written records of the organization, as well as photographs and ephemera from the group. Items in the collection range in date from 1974 to 2001, with most of the material dating from the 1990s. The bulk of the collection details the various activities of the group since its inception in 1978, including conferences attended or organized, political and legislative activity, and various shelters throughout the state.
The collection is arranged into nine series: Administrative Materials, International Development Project, Programs, Workshops/Conferences, Political/Legislative/Legal Materials, Publications, Clippings, Photographs and Ephemera. The original arrangement and subject headings have been retained as much as possible, although some reorganization was necessary to facilitate research. Basic preservation procedures, including removing staples, tape, and paperclips, were applied to the collection, which was generally in very good physical condition. Each series description includes a description of its organization, either chronological or alphabetical. Oversize items are listed within their appropriate series.
