About this collection

This collection consists of items from Clifford Ward. Some of the highlights of the collection include documents related to the establishment of Pflugerville's Colored Addition. In 1910, African-American workers who worked in the Pflugerville cotton industry and ice factory were not allowed to move into the town. La Rue Noton, a farmer who owned 1,200 acres of land west of Pflugerville, set aside an acre and sold lots to the workers at fifty dollars each. In April 1910, the settlement was placed in the county records as Pflugerville's Colored Addition. The original settlers included Pete McDade, George Caldwell, Will Smith, Ned Tyson, Willie Allen, and their families.
