Statement on Potentially Harmful Material

Libraries and archives collect materials that are reflections of the time periods and societies in which they were originally created. As a result, some of the materials in our holdings may contain content that is considered racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, biased, violent, or otherwise offensive.

Texas A&M University-Commerce and Velma K. Waters Library do not endorse the views expressed in any such material. The items are preserved and presented for educational and research purposes, and as an effort to present a complete view of historical record.
