Affairs of the Association.


The memorial page following serves as a reminder of a loss to the
University and to the Historical Association that is deeply felt.
The Association especially owes Professor Bugbee a great debt for
his effective efforts in enlarging its membership, building up its
revenues, and keeping its finances in order.
Professor Bugbee had proved himself a skillful investigator and
an able writer. He had done much valuable work in Texas history,
and his career was full of promise till disease began to paralyze his
energies. His race was short, but he bore well the uplifted torch,
and he has not run in vain.
It has been decided to have the regular annual meeting of the
Association for this year jointly with that of the Veterans and the
Daughters of the Republic at Lampasas, April 21st. Owing to
unexpected delay in completing the arrangements for this meeting,
which have just been made, it is now too late to provide for papers
to be presented then; but it is likely that one or two whose titles
cannot now be announced will be read. Of course the election of
officers for the ensuing year and the transaction of whatever busi-
iness may require attention will be included in the program.
The policy of holding the regular annual meetings of the Asso-
ciation jointly with the Veterans and the Daughters is intended to
be permanent, and in spite of the little time left to prepare it has
been thought best to inaugurate the custom at once.
Members will please take this as the regular announcement of
the meeting.
I wish to secure the J. Pinckney Henderson memorial number
(Vol. I, No. 12) of The Texas Magazine. Any one having this
number for sale will please address
Howard Memorial Library,
New Orleans, La.
