The Wittliff Collections lost a treasure when Bill Wittliff passed away on June 9, 2019. Thirty-five years ago, in 1986, Bill and his wife, Sally, founded The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University and started us on a path that has no end. We are privileged to continue collecting, preserving, and sharing the rich cultural heritage of the unbridled Southwest, through photography, literature, music, and film. The Wittliff Collections Festival will be a celebration of Bill’s vision, and a time to honor his legacy.
