A native of San Antonio, Texas, Claude B. Aniol (1900-1980) was involved in advertising in his home town for much of his life, owning and operating an advertising agency from 1936 until 1967.
Reflecting a personal interest in Texas history and the use of historical information in promotional publications, the Claude B. Aniol collection is made up of subject files that gather material on a variety of Texas topics. The contents of the files vary, but they commonly include clippings, pamphlets, brochures, printed ephemera, and photocopies. Many files are related to general Texas subjects or to specific cities and towns, but over half are entirely or in part associated with San Antonio history. Of note are files related to San Antonio cultural institutions, clubs, financial institutions, military bases, missions, and churches.
