AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION
The forty-fourth annual meeting of the Association was held
in Austin on April 26-27. At the same time the first annual
meeting of the Junior Historians was also held. The program
for both organizations appears below.
The second annual book auction was a real success, attended
by book lovers from all parts of the state. The gross proceeds
amounted to about $900. Since practically all books were con-
tributed, the Association realized more than $800 net. The
auction promises to be one of the most attractive features. Its
effect in stimulating book collecting is sure to have a beneficial
effect on the demand for books about Texas. The Association
is indebted to all those who contributed to the success of the
auction, either by gift or purchase. A list of the donors fol-
lows. If the name of any donor is omitted, he is requested
to communicate with the secretary.
