A copy of the pamphlet "Three Men of Texas and a Texas Insti-
tution" has been put in TZZ in the Eugene C. Barker Texas His-

Clement M. Silvestro, director of the American Association for
State and Local History, Madison, Wisconsin, has announced that
the Association will award $1,ooo each year to the author of the
unpublished manuscript in local history that makes the most dis-
tinguished contribution to United States or Canadian historiog-
raphy. The first award will be made in 1961.
In addition to the $1,ooo American Association for State and
Local History Prize, the Association has established a grant-in-aid
program for significant research projects in local history. Both
programs will be administered by the new Research and Publi-
cation Committee of the Association.
The Committee will determine which of the manuscripts sub-
mitted in the competition shall receive the $1,ooo award. The
award will convey to the Association the presumption of first
publication rights to the manuscript.
The Association may accept for publication other meritorious
manuscripts submitted in the competition, but only one award
of $1,ooo will be made each year. If the committee deems no
manuscript worthy of the award in any year, no prize will be
granted. Manuscripts must be scholarly in character, and literary
merit will be an important consideration.
This award has been established in the belief that local history
can make a major contribution to American and Canadian his-
toriography as a vital supplement to the broader interpretation
of national or international history. Significant regional and
community studies-the scholarly investigation of what happened,
why it happened, who made it happen, and its relationship to
