Southwestern Historical Quarterly
authored the popular Texas History Carved in Stone, was the
subject of a biographical sketch in the Houston Chronicle Roto-
gravure Magazine for December 8, 1957. The sketch announces
the publication of a new work by Jones entitled Texas Testimony
Carved in Stone which is a sequel to his first book. Such a work
will be valuable for all students of Texas history.
The Junior Historians at McCamey High School, working
under the able leadership of Miss N. Ethie Eagleton, are anxious
to complete their file of volumes of the Quarterly. Miss Eagleton
reports the missing volumes as numbers 1, 3, 5, 18, 22, 23, 24,
25, and 32. All of these volumes are out of print and members
and dealers who might be able to supply them are requested to
write directly to Miss Eagleton.
On San Jacinto Day, April 21, Captain Richard C. Robbins
took time off from Exercise Saberhawk in Germany to write back
a letter of appreciation for the Quarterly and to send his check
for his annual dues. Since leaving the campus of the University
of Texas about a decade ago, Captain Robbins has been assidu-
ously devoting himself to a history of the Second Cavalry. He
completed a tour of duty in the University of Houston before
going overseas. Since going overseas he has been appointed to
teach American History in the University of Maryland's exten-
sion courses in Europe. The Captain's new address is as follows:
Captain Richard C. Robbins, o01597018, Company A, 4th QM
Battalion, Fourth Armored Division, APO 326, c/o PM, New
York, New York.
R. Henderson Shuffler, Director of Information and Publica-
tion at Texas A. & M. College, is preparing a biography of Richard
Coke, the Texas governor who restored state government to the
people following the period of Reconstruction. Coke also served
sixteen years in the United States Senate and unquestionably an
account of his life will be a welcome addition to Texas history.
Shuffler spoke on the subject of his biography before the Heritage
Society of Waco on April 24. Coke was a resident of Waco, and
Roger N. Conger reports that Shuffler's presentation was received
with great enthusiasm.
