Un archivo de enorme importancia es del empresario y contratista británico Weetman Pearson (luego Lord Cowdray), fundador y dueño hasta 1921 de la empresa “El Águila” una de las dos empresas petroleras más importantes en México antes de la nacionalización. Este archivo contiene fondos referentes a aspectos diversos del negocio petrolero y sobre todo una enorme cantidad de correspondencia e informes de los negocios de Pearson como contratista, el más importante en México antes de la revolución. Contiene fotos de Weetman Pearson y de algunas instalaciones petroleras y de los ferrocarriles en México, la refinería de Tampico, pozos (principalmente de Potrero del Llano) y transporte. También contiene fotos de algunas construcciones de ingeniería en otras partes del mundo. Es necesario complementar estos fondos con los que son propiamente de la empresa de “El Águila” que se guardan en el Archivo Histórico de PEMEX. Existe una copia microfilm de los papeles de Weetman Pearson en la Biblioteca de la Universidad de Texas, Austin.

Benson Latin American Collection, Rare Books and Manuscripts, Inventory William F. Buckley, Sr. Papers, Prepared by the Mexican Archives Project October 9, 1995
Born 1881; died 1958. B.S. 1904 and LL.B. 1905, University of Texas. Lived in Mexico from 1908 until 1921, when he was expelled for opposition to the Alvaro Obregón government.
In Mexico Buckley served as advisor to U.S. and European oil companies, operated a law firm, and engaged in real estate and leasing of oil lands. In 1914 he founded the Pantepec Oil Company. Buckley was counsel to the Mexican government's delegation to the Niagara Falls Conference in 1914; in December, 1919 he testified before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations as an expert witness on conditions in Mexico. As founder and president of the American Association of Mexico Buckley worked to remove restrictions on U.S. oil and landed interests in Mexico imposed by the Mexican Constitution of 1917.
In 1924 he transferred the Pantepec Oil Co. to Venezuela. He continued as the company's president until 1943 and remained active in international oil exploration and production.
Scope and Contents Note
Newspaper clippings, correspondence, and literary productions relating to political conditions in Mexico during the revolutionary period and to Mexico's relationship with the United States and U.S. oil companies operating in Mexico. Narrower topics include revolutionary disturbances in Mexico; the situation of American residents of Mexico, described in materials of the American Association of Mexico and other groups representing Americans in Mexico; the 1914 American occupation of Veracruz; and Buckley's expulsion from Mexico.
Clippings, which form the bulk of the papers, are from both Mexican and American newspapers; some are in scrapbooks. Correspondence pertains to Buckley's professional and personal business and includes reports from field agents. Literary productions include transcriptions of newspaper texts as well as reports, statements, speeches, notes, and interviews reflecting Buckley's opinion of events in Mexico. Materials dating from after Buckley's residence in Mexico are few.

Abstract: Josephus Daniels was the owner and editor of the Raleigh News and Observer; secretary of the Navy in the administration of Woodrow Wilson, 1913-1921; and U.S. ambassador to Mexico in the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933-1941. The collection includes correspondence, writings, diaries, and other materials. Most correspondence relates to Daniels's activities as secretary of the Navy and ambassador to Mexico rather than to his personal life or to his work as owner and editor of the Raleigh, N.C., News and Observer. Also included are letters to his mother; letters, 1887-1889; to his future wife, Adelaide Worth Bagley; a file of "important letters"--Wilson, Bryan, Watterson, Walter Hines Page, and others; and selected excerpts of letters, probably arranged by Daniels's son, Jonathan Daniels. Writings include a typescript of the first three volumes of Daniels's autobiography, genealogies of the Daniels and Seabrook families, and drafts of speeches, editorials, and books. The diary series contains a notebook about military bases and supplies, 1917-1918; and diaries, 1913-1921, 1933, and 1940-1941. Other material includes a calendar Daniels kept as ambassador to Mexico, January 1937-August 1939; clippings of articles about Daniels; and correspondence and writings of Adelaide Worth Bagley Daniels. Some slight material relates to Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The E. L. Doheny Collection is the archival record of a research foundation, founded by Edward L. Doheny. Around the turn of the century Doheny sent a team of experts in several disciplines to Mexico to search for oil deposits, and to analyze the economic, political, and social climate of the country. The uncataloged collection includes typewritten reports and studies on all aspects of Mexican political, economic, and social life prior to 1917. A bibliography, by Dennis Alward, The Doheny Research Foundation: what remains today (1965) assists in locating materials from the collection.
