Southwestern Historical Quarterly
several works of medical history and a complete set of the South-
western Historical Quarterly to date. Other items in the collec-
tion represent Dr. Nixon's interest in anthology, American his-
tory, and bibliography.
Dr. Nixon, presently eighty years old, is a member of the San
Antonio Historical Association, of which he is a founding father;
the Texas State Historical Association, of which he is an honorary
lifetime fellow and a former president; the Texas Geological So-
ciety; and the History of Science Society. He came to San Antonio
as a practicing physician in 1911 and has been on the staff of
three San Antonio hospitals. In addition, he has served as chair-
man of the San Antonio Board of Health since 1945.
The Texas State Historical Survey Committee and the county
historical survey committees are continuing their fine efforts to
promote interest in the history of the state. During Texas Civil
War Historical Appreciation Week in April, George Schneider
of Bel Air High School, El Paso, received a college scholarship
for winning the poster contest, while Charles Heintz won the
essay contest. For the Texas muster and centennial at Center,
Texas, and Mansfield, Louisiana, the state historical survey com-
mittee published Red River Campaign, a pamphlet which in-
cludes the speeches given at the centennial by several public
officials, reprints of Confederate battle reports, and articles on
the history of the campaign. Copies of the pamphlet have been
distributed to public and school libraries in Texas by the El Paso
Natural Gas Company.
The theme of the historical survey committees' annual meeting
at Austin on October 23 and 24 will be "History and Tourism."
The committees are also working to collect archival material on
the Civil War period such as commissioners court minutes, the
1907 census of Confederate veterans, county histories, diaries,
letters, muster rolls, memoirs, and newspapers, which are being
placed in county folders in the Archives of the Texas State Li-
brary. In addition the Texas State Historical Survey Committee
is furthering its efforts to help place markers on historic buildings
and at historic sites, to assist in the establishment of local mu-
seums and the restoration of some historic buildings, and to hold
workshops to promote these projects.
