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: This photograph is a portrait of the four Bogel brothers in Germany. All four are wearing suits with bowties including vests and watch chains. In the center of the photograph, there is a decorative end table with books and other objects on top of it. Two of the brothers are standing behind the table, leaning on some of the items, and the other two are sitting in ornate chairs to either side of the table. They are standing in front of a wall with decorative moulding. A related source names them from left to right: Theodore, Gustave, August, and William (father of William Woodwoorth Bogel).
