The Navarro County Historical Society, with headquarters in
Corsicana, has had another profitable and worthwhile year of
activities ferreting out and presenting previously undisclosed in-
cidents in the history of the county. Under the presidency of Alva
Taylor, meetings have been held regularly for the presentation
of papers. The papers have been mimeographed and are presented
in pamphlet form as a yearbook entitled Scroll, 1957. All county
and local history societies in Texas and elsewhere would do well
to observe the pattern which has been set by the Navarro County
group for the relatively inexpensive means of preserving the
local history record.
Mrs. Pete Barlow, 103o Rochow, Houston 19, Texas, has written
for the historical association of Montgomery, Texas, calling atten-

of which is well over one hundred years old.
Ronald F. Lee, Chief of the Division of Interpretation of the
National Parks Services, has sent to the Association a copy of a
new book by Freeman Tilden, Interpreting Our Heritage. This

parks, museums, and other historic places in interpreting history
and the national heritage. The book will widen the horizon of
any general reader and there is sound information to be derived
by those in charge of local museums and historical projects.
