seum and would be on permanent display there. The ten- by
fourteen-foot canvas was completed in 1892, displayed at the
World's Fair in Chicago in 1893, and in 1904 was sent to Paris,
where for sixteen years it was on display in the French Salon.
The artist presented the picture to the city of Houston in 192o,
but until now proper display space has been difficult to find. For
three years it hung in the University Club and for four in the
Museum of Fine Arts. Since 1928 it has been in the Central
Library, but the canvas was so large that it was difficult to display
and relatively few persons, even in Houston, had the opportunity
of appreciating it. It is most fitting that Sam Houston should
return to San Jacinto, there to be permanently displayed in the
beautiful building erected on the site of his victory.

A. Garland Adair, curator of the Texas Memorial Museum and
co-editor with General Paul L. Wakefield of Under Texas Skies,

for 1950. This copy will be preserved in the office of the Asso-

The March, 1951, number of Under Texas Skies was dedicated
to the memory of Governor James Stephen Hogg. This number
contains biographical sketches of Hogg by General Wakefield and
by Robert C. Cotner, of the department of history of the Uni-
versity, as well as a collection of letters concerning Hogg written
by outstanding citizens and historians. The above issue of Under
Texas Skies was sponsored by Mr. Karl Hoblitzelle, who gener-
ously sent a copy to each Junior Historian participating in the
annual writing contest for 1951. The whole edition memorialized
the centenary of the birth of James Stephen Hogg, first native
son to be elected governor of Texas.
