McLean, for the Papers Concerning Robertson's Colony in Texas. McLean
has been editing the voluminous Robertson Papers for years, and the TCU
Press brought out the first of the multivolume set in 1974.
Mrs. W. D. White and Mr. John L. Tullis, daughter and son of the late
Mrs. Coral H. Tullis, each contributed another $I,ooo to the Tullis fund.
They have now given a total of $4,0oo and plan over the next several years
to increase the total to $1o,ooo, permitting the Award eventually to be
increased to $500.

session held at the old Victoria County Courthouse. At lunch members

discontinuance of the meetings but the energy problem and inflation are
taking their toll.
