Video Storytelling Project - Tom Vandergriff

A list of resources that will be used for my UTA HIST 3364 Video Storytelling Project about Tom Vandergriff.


Photos of Tom Vandergriff from the UTA Digital Collection

A large collection of photos (over 50) that span Mr. Vandergriff's career in Arlington. The rest of the City's History site includes a lot of information about Arlington's history.


Hall of Mayors - City of Arlington

Tom Vandergriff's entry at the Hall of Mayors at the City of Arlington website. Includes the places in town where you can see a statue of Mr. Vandergriff, and includes a video, "Remembering Tom Vandergriff."


Book: Caddos, Cotton and Cowboys: Essays on Arlington

Caddos, Cotton and Cowboys: Essays on Arlington is a book of local history by O.K. Carter covering landmarks and local points of interest. Also includes a section on Tom Vandergriff's tenure as mayor.


Book: Modern Mayors, Monumental Decisions

Modern Mayors, Monumental Decisions is a set of case studies of Arlington, Texas mayors collected by our own Dr. Allan Saxe. An essay on Mr. Vandergriff's contributions as Mayor is included.


UTA Digital Collection: Seven Seas

The Seven Seas Amusement Park (pictures from the UTA Digital Collection) was more or less a failure, but it's a credit to Mr. Vandergriff that this misstep doesn't diminish his reputation. Even the best band can release a bad album.


Book: Politics of Arlington Texas

Politics of Arlington Texas: An Era of Continuity and Growth is another contribution to this project by Dr. Allan Saxe, the book is a "chronicle of the politics, policies, and personalities" in Arlington from the early 50's to 1997.


History of Arlington, 1950 - 1977 - City of Arlington

The City of Arlington has a history on the City website spanning the time period of Tom Vandergriff's time as Mayor.
