Ferdinand Louis Huth Papers, 1778–1937 (bulk 1843-1892), 1 ft. 5 in.
Center for American History, The University of Texas at Austin
Personal and business correspondence, financial and legal records, manuscript material, printed material, photographic material, and translations and transcriptions in German, French, and English document the business, personal, and civic activities of Ferdinand Louis Huth as he immigrated to Texas, assisted in the administration of a new colony, and served in public office. The bulk of the material dates from October 1843–April 1892, covering the time between Huth's arrival in Texas and his death. Because Huth was involved in a business venture with his family and emigrated as part of a business deal with Henri Castro, it is impossible to divide the records into business and personal. Correspondence and financial documentation are the largest series and document heavily the activities involved in colonization of Texas in the 1840s. Less well represented is Huth's business life after the end of his employment with Castro.
