R.B. Creager Papers
Collection — Container: 0007
Scope and Contents
R.B. Creager papers cover the whole of Creager's life. His records include when he served as the Brownsville Customs Collector under Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. His 1916 run for Governor of Texas as a Republican is not well documented, but his other service to the Republican Party is. There is correspondence documenting his relationship with President Warren Harding and his activities as a conduit for political patronage for those rare Texas Republicans before World War II.
- 1920 - 1950
