Scope and Content

Collection consists of correspondence between Collett Munger and City Secretary M. G. James.

The Caruth Place addition was developed out of property owned by Walter Caruth (1826-1897).   Walter, and his brother William (1827-1885), amassed approximately 30,000 acres of Dallas County property in the area currently bordered by Inwood Road and White Rock Lake on the west and east and Ross Avenue and Forest Lane to the south and north. 

The Caruth Place subdivision, the first residential subdivision in Dallas, was built in 1863.  Its boundaries were Bonita Street to the north, McMillan Avenue to the west, Greenville Road to the east, and Richmond Avenue to the south.

Collett Munger (1879-1928), the author of the letter, was a prominent real estate man of Dallas and developer of Munger Place.​

This collection, dated 1920, contains correspondence with an attached map contending that an alley in the subdivision is public property.
