Thanks to our generous benefactors, the Clements Center has become an internationally renowned catalyst for research, publishing, and public programming in a variety of disciplines related to the American Southwest and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.
In May 2005, on the cusp of the Center's tenth anniversary, the Texas House of Representatives issued a lengthy proclamation commending the Clements Center for "its outstanding contributions to preserving the rich story of the American Southwest and the borderlands."
A special thank you to:
Governor and Mrs. William P. Clements
The Horizon Foundation
The Philip R. Jonsson Foundation
The Carl B. and Florence E. King Foundation
The Summerfield Roberts Foundation
