We are a small community college and do not collect archival items other than what relates directly to the history of the College. Our College and library did not even exist at that time and our newspapers only go back about a month. The question is who would have newspapers from that era.

Public libraries are a more likely source for that type of information, but I see that you have already tried the Texas City Public Library. There is the Rosenberg library in Galveston--they do keep archival information, but the focus is on Galveston. I took a look at their site and cannot verify whether they would have access to what you want or not. Here is a link to Galveston and Texas History Center at Rosenberg Library: http://www.gthcenter.org/.

Houston Public Library might also be a possibility. Here is a link to their Texas and Local Hsitroy Collection: http://www.houstonlibrary.org/texas-and-local-history-collection. If neither of those libraries have what you are looking for, I think you may be out of luck.

The only other possibility that I know of is Google News archives. I did a search on Edsel and restarted to 1957. Unfortunately, when you add the term Texas City, you get no results.  https://www.google.com/search?pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&tbm=nws&gl=us&as_q=edsel&as_occt=any&as_drrb=a&tbs=ar%3A1&authuser=0#authuser=0&gl=us&hl=en&q=edsel&tbm=nws&tbs=cdr:1,cd_min:1957,cd_max:1957.

 

Good luck!
