Despite this admittedly secondary shortcoming the Streeter
Bibliography of Texas remains eminently useful, and certainly
deserves some sort of best Texas book award. The very nature of
the book, however, may put it into a category in which no award
is available. Until such recognition can be given let this reviewer
say to Streeter: "The Eyes and Thanks of 'Texas Are Upon You."
Members of the Texas State Historical Association will be par-
ticularly interested in what Streeter has to say relative to the
value of the Association's publications:
In recording the help given me in Texas, I would be remiss if I
did not speak of the Handbook of Texas, Austin, 1952, and the
Southwestern Historical Quarterly, both publications of the Texas
State Historical Association. Both are a must for anyone working
in the field of Texas history, the Handbook for quick and almost
always reliable reference, and the Quarterly for authoritative articles
on every phase of Texas history. The Association is to be congratu-
lated on its present project of continuing the General Index now
ending with the issue of April, 1-937. In this it is setting an example
which historical societies in many other states might follow to the
great benefit of all those using their publications.
