About Us

These historical and genealogical documents were published in Texas by J. Marvin Hunter from October, 1923 until December, 1954 under the title, J. Marvin Hunter's FRONTIER TIMES MAGAZINE. In the 1970's, Western Publications reprinted most of the volumes. Reprint hard copies and collectable originals are available on request. Mr. Hunter published his periodical during a time when early Texas settlers, pioneers, cattlemen, and observers of the events of Texas history were still alive and able to tell their stories. This is one of the most valuable assets of this magazine. Its articles are written largely from the vantage point of the eye-witness observer or actual participant in the event. Mr. Hunter sought to gather as much of this eye-witness testimony as he could before the generation of these settlers passed on.
