A native of Prussia, Paul Emil Maximilian Neuendorff (1830-1885) settled in San Antonio, Texas, and held several offices in the community. His son John Baptiste Neuendorff (1868-1938) was an inventor who filed many patents over the course of his life.

Letters, certificates, patent records, clippings, and a photograph make up the Neuendorff family papers, documenting significant events in the lives of family members. Early records, from 1857 through 1885, are related to Max Neuendorff, while most of the later items are associated with his son, John B. Neuendorff.
