Elisha Marshall Pease

In August 1960 the Niles, Graham, and Pease families donated the papers of R. Niles Graham and his grandfather Governor Elisha Marshall Pease, to the Austin-Travis County Collection. Nearly quadrupling the size of the 1960 Austin-Travis County Collection, the prolific Niles-Graham-Pease papers encompass the early years of the Republic of Texas, Texas’s annexation to the United States, the Civil War and Reconstruction years, and beyond. The Pease family continues to contribute to the Austin History Center, thereby adding to the insight these historical documents provide for researchers today.
