The Fort Worth Public Library in downtown has a collection in their Genealogy section. I don't know if theirs spans back that far. That's incredible that you have such a collection!

I have one from 1918, the year my grandfather moved to Fort Worth.

I think not, at least not right now. I had thought about donating it to the Dallas Public Library genealogy department, but inertia has gotten the best of me. It's out in a box in the garage. I'll let you know if I change my mind.
