Biographical Sketch/Historical Sketch
Brothers Corky and Bill Kuykendall opened the music venue, Panther Hall, in Fort Worth, Texas in 1963. The Hall quickly became a popular destination to hear country music on Saturday nights. Some of the artists that performed at Panther Hall include Bill Anderson, Tanya Tucker, Loretta Lynn, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hank Snow, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty and Fats Domino. Panther Hall also became the site for a local television network’s, KTVT, “Cowtown Jamboree”, which aired some of the Saturday night performances. Panther Hall closed in 1978.
Wayne Beckham was a photographer for Panther Hall. Beckham’s family donated the Panther Hall Collection to the Southwestern Writers Collection in the 1990s through the efforts of The Center for the Study of Texas Music. Beckham took many pictures, both on- and off- stage, of the performers that frequented the concert hall on Saturday nights. In addition to his participation at Panther Hall, Beckham also had other business interests within the country music industry. Beckham was a publisher for the Country Music Reporter, a magazine that contained stories and bios of many of the Panther Hall performers, as well as other country music artists. Beckham also owned Becko Printing and Way-Beck Talent, an agency that booked concerts for other venues in Fort Worth and the surrounding areas.
Scope and Content Note
            The Panther Hall Collection spans 1963-1978 and documents Country and Western music in Fort Worth, Texas. The bulk of the collection is photographs with subjects including performances as well as on- and off-stage posed and candid shots. The collection is arranged into six series: Identified Photographs, Unidentified Photographs, Negatives, Promotional Materials, Papers, and Published Materials.
Series Description
Series I: Identified Photographs
Box 1 and 2
 This series is divided into 4x6 photographs and larger photographs. Within those categories the photographs are arranged alphabetically by the last name of one of the subjects within the photographs. However, there still remains a large number of people within the photographs that have not been identified. Some of the identified subjects include Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Hank Snow, Loretta Lynn, Tanya Tucker, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Jimmy Dickens, Tony Douglas, and Willie Nelson.
Series II: Unidentified Photographs
Box 3 and 4
This series is also divided into 4x6 photographs and larger photographs. Within those categories, the photos are arranged by the type of subject (crowd shot, performance, etc.).
Series III: Negatives
Box 4-7
The negatives are arranged in no particular order. In addition, there has not been careful study of the negatives so they may include images which have not been printed and included in either series I or series II.
Series IV: Promotional Materials
Box 8
This series has been arranged by the type of promotional material: ephemera, artist promotional material, and country music promotional material. Some of the material includes photo books with biographies of Country and Western music artists as well as artist books about Charley Pride, George Jones, and others.

Series VI: Published Material
