GERALD ASHFORD, "Jacksonian Liberalism and Spanish Law
in Early Texas," although a Midwesterner by birth, has rapidly
acquired the attributes of a native Texan since his introduction
to the state during World War II. Attracted to the study of
Texas history by the Spanish missions near San Antonio and the
colorful past of the region surrounding the military reservations
in that city, Ashford remained there after the war and began
the investigations of early Texas history which have culminated,
in part, in this examination of one part of that study. Ashford
holds an editorial position on the San Antonio Express.
SEYMOUR V. CONNOR, "A Statistical Review of the Settlement
of the Peters Colony, 1841-1848," is archivist for the Panhandle
Plains Historical Society and associate editor of the Panhandle
Plains Historical Review. While attending the University of
Texas, he taught in the history department and was a contributor
to The Handbook of Texas; in 1952, as his doctoral dissertation
for the University, Connor completed a comprehensive study of
Kentucky colonization in Texas. This more extended study, of
which this article is an integral part, is currently appearing in the
Register of the Kentucky Historical Society, beginning in the
January, 1953, issue.
WAYNE ALVORD, "T. L. Nugent, Texas Populist," brings a
diversified background to bear upon his study of the Populist
leader. Alvord, a graduate of Cottner College and the University
of Nebraska, also attended the University of Wisconsin and South-
ern Methodist University. Before joining the faculty of Hockaday
Junior College, Dallas, Texas, he taught history in several mid-
western public schools and, in 1944 and 1946, worked as a re-
search analyst for the Illinois Legislative Council. Alvord has
written many professional articles for national educational
journals and extensively for the Illinois Legislative Council.
