Biographical Note

Former Dallas Mayor and prominent land developer, Robert Folsom was born February 15, 1927 in Dallas, Texas. He grew up in Oak Cliff and is a graduate of Sunset High School and Southern Methodist University. In 1960-1966 he served on the Dallas School Board. Folsom defeated Garry Weber in a heated mayoral campaign in 1975 and served three consecutive terms.

Mayor Folsom has been described as straight forward and honest. As Mayor, he was committed to the growth of Dallas as a great modern city. He believed strongly in the city manager-city council form of municipal government at a time when it was considered to be "on the way out." Several building projects begun during his terms of office - Reunion Arena, Tollway and other highway improvements, and an Arts District - have proved successful. The Arts District was voted down in a bond election during Folsom's administration, but later proved to be a valuable project.

A controversial issue during the first mayoral race in 1975 and throughout Folsom's terms of office was integration. Due to a zoning proposal concerning private schools the problem id desegregation became a major issue in 1975. Folsom supported the private schools in order to prevent "white flight" from the Dallas area. He believed private schools would keep people in their neighborhoods and thereby retain the tax base. Folsom was also anti-busing which was another explosive side to the integration issue. Opponents often accused him of being racist based on this issue. In an oral history interview Folsom replied to this charge by saying he supported many minority issues, but those were never mentioned, only when he voted against an issue was attention given to the vote.

When asked, "Is Dallas a great city?" Mayor Folsom's response was, "Absolutely. It is the best city on this earth..."This was a strong convention. As Mayor, Robert Folsom worked to be sure Dallas remained great and continued to grow.

Scope and Contents

The Folsom Collection is strictly papers dealing with the Mayor's office during Folsom's three terms. Included are correspondence, memoranda, special projects, and proclamations.

The City Council Files include items concerning Bill Nicol, Bill Blackburn, Lucy Patterson, Juanita Craft, John Leedom, Steve Bartlett and other council members. These files include special reports, letters, and memoranda.

The correspondence files are an excellent source when dealing with all aspects of the Mayor's involvement in city projects. Foe example the reports on city goals, Love Field, Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, Low Income Energy Assistance Programs, Housing and Urban Development, Health Department, Utilities, and Downtown Revitalization reveal interest of Mayor Folsom and specific issues facing Dallas during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
