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!

Description:

Photograph of a dust storm cloud.

Note:

"Blow, winds, blow," is a beautiful song, but residents of the Texas Panhandle in actuality prefer to have the volume of the blow tempered. This sand storm, the worst in twenty years, came from the north and for fifteen minutes nothing was visible without electric light. Tho violent looking as it approached, the colors were very beautiful. Entered by Dr. Elmer Moore, Dimmitt, Tex.
