Nellie Murphree Collection

Does anyone know about some watercolor sketches that Miss Nellie Murphree (1882-1982) had done of old homes in DeWitt county?

They were referenced in an article: "Historical Hobby – Retired Teacher Studies Homes" that was on page 12C of the 15 Oct 1961 edition of the Corpus Christi Caller Times. An excerpt from that article: “Miss Nell recruited a Cuero Jeweler and painter, the late L. A. Carter, to do watercolors of the old homes as they appeared during their opulence.”

Also, does anyone know where Miss Nellie's collection of her research papers may have been left? I am especially interested in old photos that I believe were in that collection.
