Friends and neighbors, members of the Pirie and Sinclair families resided in eastern Bexar County, Texas. The son of Scottish immigrants, John Lang Sinclair (1869-1947) attended the University of Texas at Austin from 1899 until 1904. While there, he wrote "The Eyes of Texas are Upon You," which became the official school song.
Letters, speeches, printed material, and photographs document the close relationship between the Pirie family and the neighboring Sinclair family. Several items in the collection relate to John Lang Sinclair.
