AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION
The thirty-second annual meeting of the Texas State His-
torical Association was held at Austin, April 22-23, 1929. Papers
were read as follows: Frederick Chabot, "The Powerful Aguayos";
Abigail Curlee, "Glimpses of Plantation Life in Texas"; C. C.
Rister, "The Significance of the Disappearance of the Buffalo from
the Southwest"; Alex Dienst, "Texas Chronicles and Trouba-
dours"; David Donoghue, "Retracing the Steps of the Pathfind-
ers"; Harbert Davenport, "Irish and Mexican Colonists and the
Dr. Alex Dienst was elected president. W. S. Red, Ingham S.
Roberts, J. L. Clark and Mrs. H. J. O'Hair were elected vice-
presidents; Charles W. Ramsdell and Mrs. Coral H. Tullis were
elected, respectively, treasurer and corresponding secretary. Miss
Anna Powell and Miss Adina de Zavala were elected to the execu-
tive council. Messrs. Harbert Davenport, Rupert N. Richardson
and J. Evetts Haley were elected fellows, and Mr. and Mrs. J. R.
Cartwright and S. R. Fulmore were made honorary life members
of the Association.
A committee was appointed, consisting of E. C. Barker, Charles
W. Ramsdell and E. W. Winkler, to confer with the editor of the
Dictionary of American Biography concerning the inclusion of the
names of Texans in the Dictionary. The sentiment of the Associa-
tion was that some names which were included in the first volume
ought to have been omitted and that some which do not appear
ought to have been included. The committee was instructed to
inquire of the editor whether some arrangement could not be made
for submitting the names of Texans under consideration to the
committee for discussion.
The treasurer's report, which appears below, was received, and
W. S. Red was appointed to audit it.
