Edward B. (Jerry) Baker Aerial Photos Collection

Identifier: A-0043

Scope and Contents

This collection consists mostly of aerial photographs and negatives of Nacogdoches, area industrial buildings, and schools (1960s-1980s). Items researchers might find interesting include:

Eight photographs taken inside the courtroom during the Edward Otho Haggins murder case featuring prominent figures during the trial. It began in February 1961 when the murder occurred. Haggins and Elsie Marie Milner were caught, tried, indicted, and convicted by June 1961. It is one of only two capital murder trials in Nacogdoches.

Two images show fire damage to the International Paper Mill. This was one of two major fires that hit Nacogdoches in 1984 (the other destroyed the downtown mall).
