CONTRIBUTORS
Daniel Worsham Ogletree, "Establishing the Texas Court
of Civil Appeals, 1875-1876," pages 5-18, is a native son of
the capitol city of Austin, where he attended public schools and
received from The University of Texas the B. A. in 1929 and
the M. A. in August, 1936. For his master's thesis, Ogletree
wrote A History of Dawson County, Texas, in the World War.
Ogletree's teaching career extends over a period of some fifteen
years, the bulk of which has been in Lamesa High School, La-
mesa, Texas, where for the past three years he has been the
sponsor of the Junior Historian Chapter of Lamesa High
School. Ogletree writes that his interest in Texas history and
his philosophy of history in general is best expressed in the
quotation carried on the masthead of The Junior Historian:
"No man is fit to be entrusted with the control of the PRES-
ENT, who is ignorant of the PAST, and no People, who are
indifferent to their PAST, need hope to make their FUTURE
great."

TerAn," which is continued on page 29, is the head of the
History Department of Edinburg Junior College, Edinburg,
