Scope and Contents of the Materials
This collection contains two propositions submitted to the Mayor and City Council of Denton, Texas, concerning the lease of the Normal Building which housed the Texas Normal College and Teacher Training Institute. The propositions were written in response to the mass meeting of the citizens of Denton held at the courthouse on January 29, 1894, in which it was determined that the Normal Building should be leased to "some responsible and well qualified man."
One proposition is written by A.F. Heltman, the other by J.A. Sanders of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Sanders's proposition includes a cover letter written and signed by D. Head, Chairman (of the committee appointed by the citizens of Denton) recommending Sanders. Both propositions state that the person to whom the building is leased shall assume all responsibility for the school and the maintenance of the building and that any lease shall be terminated upon an act of the state legislature making the school a state institution.
