The Fort Brown Quartermaster's Ledger consists of two-page reports that were originally bound in a single volume. The reports describe specifications for buildings on the Fort Brown military installation. This includes information about the floor plans, building dimensions, construction materials, mechanicals, appliances, and any changes or updates made to the building over time. There are 192 buildings covered within the ledger from Fort Brown, in Brownsville, Texas, and four from Boca Chica, in Brownsville, Texas. Construction and facility renovation dates from the buildings covered in the ledger range from the 1860s to the 1940s, while the reports were created from 1919 to 1946. Additional reports in the ledger encompass supporting forms for operations including sewerage, maintenance, water testing, and the like, totalling 30 forms. Some present-day buildings from Fort Brown can still be found on the campus of Texas Southmost College (TSC). TSC is the owner of the Fort Brown Quartermaster's Ledger, and rights and reproductions requests should be directed to the college.
