HE ASSOCIATION extends proud congratulations to its pres-
ident, Dr. Ralph W. Steen, who assumed the presidency
of Stephen F. Austin College at Nacogdoches in the fall
of 1958. Recognized as an outstanding scholar and educator
throughout the state, President Steen has long been one of the
Association's most devoted supporters, both as a member and an
Dr. Joseph Milton Nance was named to succeed President Steen
as head of the department of history and government at Texas
A. and M. College. Dr. Nance, who has also been an Association
member for several years, is an admirable choice for the position.

Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas in 1941; his subse-
quent career has been one of real service to Texas education.
The Association's Junior Historian organization has again re-
ceived national recognition for the excellence of its program.
The award comes in the form of a national honor certificate that
was presented to the Junior Historian by the Freedoms Founda-
tion of Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The text of the certificate is
