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.

Description: Photograph of Wendell Lee Tarver and two unidentified men crouching in a cattle pen filled with straw at the Houston Fat Stock Show in Houston, Texas. Wendell (left) is wearing jeans , a button-down shirt, and a cowboy hat; he is holding a rope attached to a dark-colored calf standing just behind the men with a larger, dark-colored cow. The two men are wearing suits and hats and are gesturing as if they are speaking to Tarver. There are other animal pens partially visible in the background. Handwritten text on the back of the photo says: "Wendell L. Tarver, Houston Fat Stock Show, Caught Gov. Jester's calf in calf scramble."
