Texas State University’s Wittliff Collections Now Home to Vast Tejano Music Archives
From The Statesman:
One of the largest known collections of Tejano music materials and memorabilia has found a new home at the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University.
The Wittliff, known for its collection of materials from authors and artists whose work focuses on the Southwest, spent $150,000 to acquire the archive of renowned musicologist and San Antonio-based collector Ramón Hernández.
It’s a treasure trove,” said Hector Saldaña, curator of the Texas Music Collection at the Wittliff. “The Mexican-American experience is still being discovered, and, musically, it has not been given the most in-depth look.”
The Witliff Collections are part of the Texas State University Libraries.
