Our History

Texas Press Clipping Bureau was created in 1910 by Frances Edith Calahan. The company expanded when William Henderson Kittrell joined the team. Kittrell, a well connected member of the Democratic party and part-time lobbyist, began to sell clippings to political candidates. Sadly in 1966, he passed away as a well respected member of the community, having had relationships with many influential members of government including President JFK.

TPCB still carries on Kittrell's public relations tradition to this day. We still assist politicians in monitoring their media exposure, as well as a great many other individuals for their business, their events, or their brands. We have evolved from the original idea of a 'clipping bureau' and function as a fully comprehensive media monitoring group. That means we use all the new gizmos (computers and software) but still cover all the old gadgets (ink on paper).

We are proud to work with you as a Texas-based veteran-owned business and are registered on the TX Centralized Master Bidders List.
