This is a complete package from the retirement of Texas State Senator Ralph W. Yarborough. Yarborough resigned from office in 1970 after having been elected in 1957. He was the chairman of the Labor and Public Welfare Committee and the Sub Committee on Health besides serving on many other committees.
What makes this packet so special is that not only is it a booklet from the Texas dinner in honor of his retirement but it also contains stationary from his office as Chairman of the Labor And Public Welfare committee, has a handbill from a Fiesta and Tribute Supper, a US published Tribute, a glossy photograph of the Senator, and another hand-drawn reproduction for a dinner given on July 27, 1972 in Houston.
In the state-wide dinner program there are remembrances from Hubert Humphry, Barbara Jordan and President John F. Kennedy.
This is not only a fabulous collection it is a piece of history. It is all in excellent vintage condition with some light curling of a corner on the blue and white dinner program from 1972.
