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.

Not Now

[Abel Stationers at retail fair]

Description:

Photograph of Abel Stationers booth at a retail fair. An employee talks to a customer reclining in a chair. Another employee talks to a man at a typewriter at a desk in the background. The showroom is set up to look like a modern office, with wares on display as they would appear in an office setting. Other booths and customers are visible in the background.
