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.

Vacation Bible School

Date: June 1937
Creator: unknown
Description: Photograph of a group of children and an adult female standing outside of a building to the right of the image identified as the Vacation Bible School. They are standing roughly into 4 rows, with the front row of girls wearing knee-length dresses and the boys dressed in different styles of dungarees. Only two of the girls are wearing shoes. There are two large trees in the distance. Black hand-written text on the back of the photograph is in a Germanic language, possibly Dutch, while a succeeding blue line of text reads, "Vacation Bible School, Stephanie Swendsen".
