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

Alice Bishop

Description:

This photograph shows a young woman sitting in a chair. She is wearing a flowered dress and glasses and has her hair pulled back. Behind her, there is a wall that appears to be made of brick that is partially covered in ivy and has a door to the right. The chair appears to be on a path bordering a bed of flowers and other plants. Some parts of the photograph are obscured by white light. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph says "Alice Bishop." There is a printed border around the photograph.
