Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Martin A. Row Collection (1766-1957; nine boxes) contains materials belonging to attorney Martin A. Row.  The collection includes legal briefs and arguments concerning Sun Oil Company as well as Martin A. Row’s professional notes on Padre Island and photographs of the Texas coast.  The collection also contains Martin A. Row’s personal books and a small amount of his professional correspondence concerning the Texas Tidelands case.

The Tidelands controversy between the United States and Texas involved submerged and coastal lands in the Gulf of Mexico.  The focus of the dispute was the royalties and leasing of the submerged lands of Texas and whether the rights belonged to the Federal government or the Texas government.
