The University Archives at East
Texas State University has developed
the Last Caddo Bateau exhibit with a
grant from the Texas Committee for
the Humanities. The traveling exhibit
includes a bateau, and a plank piroguelike
boat. Master boat builder Wyatt
A. Moore has crafted a bateau so it
could be documented. The exhibit is
scheduled to tour Texas and Louisiana
in 1985. A written narrative will be
available on the construction of this
significant folk craft. For information
and scheduling contact East Texas
State University Archives, Commerce,
Texas 75428, (214) 886-5000.

NEWSLETTER TO BE DISCONTINUED

At the most recent meeting of the
Board of Directors, it was determined
that due to rising paper, printing, and
postage costs, The Cornerstone will no
longer be published on a monthly
basis. However, the information contained
in the monthly newsletter will
be incorporated into the quarterly
magazine, TEXASHERITAGE within
the section titled The Cornerstone.
This decision is part of an overall plan
to conserve operating expenses which
will enable the Foundation to more
actively continue supporting important
preservation programs around the
state.
Austin, A Mapguide to the Heart
of the City is available through the
Treaty Oak Press, P.O. Box 50295,
Austin, TX 78763. This beautiful map
includes details on the Capitol Complex
and government buildings, downtown
streets and buildings, The University
of Texas, historic sites, parks
and trails, Town Lake and museums.
ERRATA
In last month's issue of the Cornerstone
an article appeared on the development
of a television series on archaeology
in Texas, called "Land and
Legacy." We wish to state that Dr.
Glenna Dean, Assistant State Archaeologist
for the Texas Historical Commission,
who helped initiate this project,
will continue to serve as the
Humanities Advisor for the Texas
Committee for the Humanities Planning
Grant.
