From 1717 through 1836 the governments of Spain and Mexico collected in San Antonio de Bexar, the then capital of Texas, an amazing series of official documents detailing the military, civilian, and political life of the Spanish province of Texas and the Mexican state of Coahuila y Texas. These records, which have become known as the Bexar Archives, constitute the most complete and detailed primary source in existence for the study of colonial Texas. In cooperation with the Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin, UPA has published The Bexar Archives, on microfilm, reproducing in their entirety its more than 250,000 pages of manuscript documentation and the more than 4,000 pages of printed material on colonial and regional Texas history.
