Jim Wright represented Texas' 12th District for thirty-four years, rising to the speakership in 1987 and eventually resigning because of an ethics investigation. Mary Saffell, senior archivist at Texas Christian University’s Special Collections, shared items in his collection that provide insight into his relationship with his home district and his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2018 LCV Cities Tour” in Fort Worth, Texas, from April 7-13 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Charter cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2. close
