The historic records of Jesse Jones (1874-1956), one of the nation's most powerful appointed officials during the Great Depression and World War II and one of Houston's pre-eminent developers during the first half of the 20th century, are now archived at Rice University's Fondren Library.

Fondren Library announces the acquisition of the Rose Lambiotte Family Francis Poulenc Archive, consisting of original autograph musical manuscripts, signed and inscribed printed scores, autograph letters and related material. Francis Poulenc (1899–1963) was a French composer and a member of the group Les Six. He has come to be considered the greatest composer of French mélodies of the period from the 1920s until the early 1960s. The collection originates with the Lambiotte family, who were longtime personal friends of the composer.
