A native of Ireland, Bryan Callaghan (circa 1812-1854) came to San Antonio, Texas, about 1838, where he was engaged in business and served a term as mayor. His youngest child, Bryan Callaghan Jr. (1852-1912), received a law degree and entered politics in San Antonio, serving as alderman, mayor, and County Judge. His daughter Concepción married Julius Theodore Muegge, a member of a pioneering German family in San Antonio.

Letters, legal documents, financial documents, printed material, photographs, and artifacts document the political and personal activities of family members.
