The twenty-first annual meeting of the American Association
for State and Local History, held in San Francisco, California, on
August 29 to September 1, i961, featured an address by H. Bailey
Carroll on the subject of "The Junior Historian Movement." Dr.
Carroll defined the research and writing program of the Texas
Junior Historians as the "calf pasture" of local history-the train-
ing ground for the thoroughbred historians of tomorrow. The
response to the session was gratifying, and the exchange of ideas
among the leaders of the various state programs advocating strong
support of the junior historian movement was most enlightening.
Members of the panel included: Olive Foster, editor of Illinois
History; Doris Platt, editor of Badger History for the Wisconsin
Junior Historians; and Maurice Frink, who represented the
Junior Historians of Colorado and their publication, The Gold
Nugget. From the discussions held in San Francisco it is obvious
that the Junior Historians of Texas enjoy an enviable position, and
the members of the Association can be proud of the progress
being made by its junior program.
In addition to the recognition accorded Texas Junior His-
torians and their program, Texas received further recognition at
the meeting. Three Association members were announced as
recipients of American Association for State and Local History
publication awards: Virginia and Herbert Gambrell for A Pic-
torial History of Texas, and Dorman H. Winfrey for his History
of Rusk County.
