nearly 150 years, the Texas Almanac has provided a
detailed portrait of the state - its geography, population,
industry, and commerce. But the 1936 Almanac was
special, the largest to that date, celebrating the state's 100th
year of independence. SMU's William P. Clements for Southwest
Studies has rendered a great service to all students of Texas
history -- both professional and amateur -- by republishing this
valuable and rare book.

1936 Almanac offers today's reader the opportunity to visit
the state as it was before the enormous post-World War II boom

highways and jet airplanes and filled its cotton fields with
homes and schools. It was a different time and place, and the
Almanac gives us a sense of what these differences were.
