The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Volume 45, July 1941 - April, 1942

Texas Collection

of the sectional meeting of the Texas State Historical Associa-
tion at San Antonio, has presented excellent programs at its
monthly gatherings. The most recent meeting, held Friday,
March 20, was high lighted by Mrs. Donald E. Forker's paper,
"The Heritage of Texas is the Gentleman's Agreement." The
hostess for the occasion was Mrs. E. A. Holmgreen. Non-
member guests are invited to the San Antonio Association's
meetings.
Timely now and possibly a collector's item ten years hence
is the first booklet on one of our naval leaders, Admiral Chester
W. Nimitz, His Heritage and Training, by Julia Estill of Fred-
ericksburg, Texas, who is a member of the Texas State His-
torical Association and the former sponsor of the Fredericks-
burg chapter of the Junior Historians. The reprint of an article
appearing in the Fredericksburg Standard, the booklet dis-
cusses Nimitz's background and career. It is profusely illus-
trated with photographs, including one of the old "Steamboat
Hotel," and is an interesting addition to any library.
Attention is called to the appearance of new names on the
editorial staff of the Quarterly. Four graduate students in the
Department of History have accepted appointment as editorial
assistants for the remainder of this year. They are Charles
Cumberland, James H. McLendon, Andrew F. Muir, and Van
Mitchell Smith. These men have assisted in preparing copy and
news items for the current issue of the Quarterly and have
answered inquiries that come in to this office. As time goes on
this graduate student staff will have the opportunity of taking
over more of the work of the Association, a sort of laboratory
experience in editing and publishing historical material.
