Special Collections in the Library
Hill Collection (Texana)
The John L. Hill Texana Collection was established in 1984. It consists
of 1,000 volumes of Texana, Texas History, Texas Government, and Texas
Fiction. Also, included in the collection are John Hill's Texas Attorney
General's files, as well as pamphlets of Texas history.
The Hill Collection was donated to Kilgore College by former Texas Supreme Court Justice John L. Hill, Jr. in honor of his parents Jessie Hooverttill and John L. Hill, Sr. In addition there are rare,
semi-rare, and first editions of Texana volumes.
Texas Heritage Resource Center
In January 1982, the Randolph C. Watson Library was designated as a Texas
Heritage Resource Center by the Texas Historical Foundation. It is one
of several across the state established to provide Texas history teachers
with easy access to books and materials about the state. The library met
the requirements for a resource center and is considered a charter member.
