The Texas Historian

What's Inside this Collection.

The Texas Historian

The Texas Historical Association features the Texas Historian, one of the few historical journals in the nation dedicated to publishing the work of secondary students.

First issued in 1941 under the title Junior Historian, it was described by Walter Prescott Webb as "an experiment" founded on the belief that "Texas boys and girls are competent to collect the history, tradition, and lore of their separate communities and to write out the results of their investigations in a way worthy of publication." This magazine contains the writings of Texas's outstanding student historians and features news and events involving Junior Historian chapters and participants.
