An attractive manuscript schoolboy / schoolgirl map of Texas by Ernest W. DuBois. Entitled the 'West Central States,' this map in fact focuses primarily on Texas with the adjacent Indian Territory (Oklahoma), Louisiana, and Arkansas also included. The map is finely drawn throughout with great attention to rivers and town placement. No counties are identified.

The author, Ernest W. DuBois, no doubt drew this map during his schoolboy years as St. Augustine College for Boys, an Episcopalian boys school in Benicia California. DuBois was born in 1870, suggesting that this map must have been drawn between 1880 and 1887, when DuBois attended the school between the ages of 10 and 17. DuBois parents emigrated to Marin County California in 1863. DuBois himself spent his life in California where he amassed considerable real-estate holdings.
