Politics on Corral

Texas Politics Project

The Texas Politics Project includes an archive of original videotaped interviews with current and former elected officials and other political professionals from Texas. This unique data collection constitutes an ongoing oral record of primary source accounts of contemporary political history.

Texas Politics Project interview with Ann Richards.

"Corral is an invaluable tool for solving some of our key problems. Our collection contains video of unique and irreplaceable interviews with figures from Texas political history that pose significant storage and cataloging challenges. These very large video files need to be both secure and retrievable, requirements which the system at TACC has been able to meet in ways that no other service can match."
