An Ohio native, Albert Curtis (1897-1969) moved to Texas in 1933 and eventually settled in San Antonio. While working as a civilian employee at San Antonio military bases, Curtis devoted much of his time to researching and writing, particularly on San Antonio, the Texas Revolution, and the Alamo.

Manuscripts, correspondence, source material, and personal items make up the Albert Curtis Papers, reflecting years of research and writing on the history of Texas. The bulk of the papers are edited typescripts. Many of these are works on the Texas Revolution, particularly the Battle of the Alamo and commander William Barret Travis.
