Trail, which the New York Times called "a magnificent piece
of work" and listed as one of the outstanding books of 1954.
ROBERT LEE BOBBITT, "Inaugural Address on Retracing the
Chisholm Trail," is eminently qualified to inaugurate any cele-
bration commemorating a phase of Texas history and particularly
the 1956 Chisholm Trail Celebration Drive. A native son of
Texas, whose father and grandfather were both trail drivers,
Judge Bobbitt has actively supported the preservation of the
traditions and history of the Texas cattle kingdom and is present-
ly a vice president of the Old Trail Drivers Association of Texas.
High among his many material contributions to Texas was his
service as attorney general of the state. Judge Bobbitt, who is
a life member of the Association, is widely known as a leading
patron of Texas history.
WALTER E. LONG, "Notes on the Longhorn-Chisholm Trail,"
has established an enviable record as a local historian in Central
Texas. As manager of the Austin Chamber of Commerce for
thirty-five years, Mr. Long took advantage of the splendid op-
portunities and obligations of his position to discover, collect,
and preserve the irreplaceable pictorial and written record of
Austin, Travis County, and the surrounding area. In addition
to numerous pamphlets, Mr. Long's writings include contribu-
tions to various newspapers that have been compiled in some
twenty-five extensive scrapbooks. He is presently the supervisor
of the Texas Legislative Service.
GLENN O. WILSON, "Red River Station - An Address," a
prominent lawyer and leading citizen of Nocona, Texas, has
long been a student of Texas and Western history. For a number
of years he has concentrated his investigations particularly on
Old Red River Station. As a result of his researches, he has
become a recognized authority on this important historical site,
which has been called the "Jumping Off" point of the Chisholm
Trail in Texas.
VIRGINIA H. TAYLOR, "Calendar of the Letters of Antonio
Martinez," is the archivist of the Texas State Library.
