The American Association for State and Local History, 151
East Gorham Street, Madison 3, Wisconsin, has initiated a new
publication which should be of tremendous interest and real
functional value to multiplied thousands of the American people.
The overall publication is to have the general title of Technical
Leaflet. The first undertaking consists of four printings entitled
"Caring For Your Collections: Metals and Leather." The poten-
tial of such an enterprise is almost without end. The publication
will, in its very nature, be of interest and service both to museum
enterprises and to the field of history. Every Texas library (wheth-
er public, educational or private) will profit immeasurably
through having complete files of this newly launched publication.
All members of the Association are encouraged to write di-
rectly to the American Association at the above address and to
make subscription and publication arrangements. Apparently sin-
gle copies may be purchased for no greater sum than ten cents.
As many as fifty copies may be purchased for $3.00. This is ob-
viously a step in the right direction and in the very nature of
things. The enterprise must eventually cover America, which will
mean that Texana items will certainly be coming along from time
"Long Trail from Texas," the reminiscences of Bob Fudge, are
included in the Summer, 1962, Montana, the Magazine of Western
History. Before he died in 1932, Fudge wrote his reminiscences
which included accounts of cattle drives from Texas north in the
summers of 1881 through 1884 and a drive up the trail with a
herd of horses in 1885. Fudge's life story ran serially in the
Powder River Examiner (Broadus, Montana), in 1953. The
manuscript from which the newspaper account was taken and
from which the chapter printed in Montana was taken is depos-
ited in the archives of the Historical Society of Montana.
