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: Cropped copy-photograph of shell piles in Aransas County. A car is parked on a road to the left of the piles. In front of them, there is a pool of water. In the background, there is a piece of construction machinery. Shell was used to build streets in 1920s and 1930s before paving techniques were used.
