Mr. Frederick C. Chabot, 403 Madison Street, San Antonio,
Texas, is preparing to publish privately a volume entitled With,
the Makers of San Antonio. Besides sketching the history of
San Antonio during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries,
the book is a genealogical and biographical record of the early
Spanish residents of San Antonio and of their descendants. It
is the product of most efficient and painstaking research in the
ecclesiastical, municipal, and county records of San Antonio and
is a worthy monument to the original inhabitants of San Antonio.
Publication of the book will depend to some extent upon pre-
publication subscriptions at $5.00 a copy, and Mr. Chabot will
be pleased to receive subscriptions at the address given above.
Mr. Chabot gives the following information about himself:
"I was born in San Antonio in 1891. My father's mother's
family, the Van Derlips, came to San Antonio from Gonzales in
1844. My mother's mother's family, the Bradleys, came to San
Antonio in 1840. I was educated in the San Antonio High School
(graduated 1909) and continued my studies in Germany and
France. In 1915 I was in service for the Department of Justice
and in 1917 I entered the diplomatic service of the United States
of America after competitive examination, and was assigned third
secretary of the Embassy in Paris. I resigned from the service in
1925. Since that date I have traveled in Europe and in Mexico,
and have done considerable research work. The last several
months I have concentrated on the Spanish Archives and on the
San Fernando Cathedral records."
