Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

[Group Portrait of Children]

Description:

Photograph of a portrait of a group of children organized into three tiered rows. The front row consists of a small group of young boys sitting on the ground. The second row consists of a group of seated young girls and a young woman who is seated in the middle. The back row consists of a small group of slightly older girls wearing either tartan printed or white dresses. There is a window both behind the group and on the right-hand side of the image. Many of the boys are holding wide-brimmed hats. The photograph is mounted on a patchy, light-colored piece of cardboard. There is a handwritten note in Spanish on the back of the photograph that translates to read, "This portrait is affectionately dedicated to the President of the Children's Society - Delia Lopez, G.A. Walls, Laredo, Tex Oct. 27, 1920"
