AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION
The forty-seventh annual meeting of the Association was
held in Austin on April 23-24. This year's meeting was held
jointly with the Texas Folk-Lore Society. When one considers
the wartime transportation difficulties involved, the attend-
ance was good. The Junior Historians, however, were much
missed, and all look forward to the time when the young peo-
ple can be again a regular part of the meeting.
A list of the donors to the book auction is given in the Texas
Collection. The bidding was spirited this year, and the As-
sociation is indebted to all who contributed to the success of
the auction, either by gift, purchase, or services.
Dr. K. H. Aynesworth again proved himself one of the out-
standing presiding officers in the State by his excellent handling
of the joint Historical and Folk-Lore Dinner.
