Andrew Jackson Houston (1854-1941) was the son of Texas Revolutionary hero Sam Houston. A retired colonel of the Texas National Guard, a professor of military science at St. Maryâ€™s University, and a Prohibition Party candidate for Texas governor in 1910 and 1912, A.J. Houston retired to focus on writing about Texas history in 1918. Drawing on a large collection of inherited documents from his father, he wrote and published a book about the history of Colonial Texas, featuring this intriguing series of maps. A.J. Houston died in Washington D.C. on June 26, 1941, two months after his appointment to the U.S. Senate.
