ON January 19, 1950, the Association offices were moved
from Garrison Hall to new quarters in the Eugene C.
Barker Texas History Center, located in the Old Library
Building on the west side of the campus of the University of Texas.
The building has been completely redecorated and refurnished,
and the Association has been allotted an excellent suite of offices
on the main floor. A few days later Dr. Barker moved into his

floor and the stack area which housed the main library of the
University until the present Main Building was completed in

convenient time either before or after that date.
There will be a tea in the building in the afternoon of April
27 and a dinner to follow at the Stephen F. Austin Hotel. Dr.

the dinner speaker and J. Evetts Haley will be master of cere-
