INSTITUTE OF TEXAS STUDIES
Fifty junior and senior high school and community college teachers
attended the second Institute of Texas Studies cosponsored by the De-

teachers attending the Institute an interdisciplinary approach to the study
and teaching of the Texas culture from 1865-1970. Fifteen scholars from
