Cold War Oral History Series organized by Texas Historical Commission

When the Lone Star State Met the Iron Curtain: Recollections of Texas in the Cold War is a Texas Historical Commission initiative to interpret and preserve the history of the varied roles Texans played in the Cold War from 1946–1991.

The project goal is to honor the memories of both Texans who served in the armed forces as well as those who made contributions on the home front. Initial funding is made possible through the support of The Summerlee Foundation located in Dallas, which previously contributed to the THC’s award-winning Texas in World War II oral history workshop series.
