WEBB HISTORICAL SOCIETY
After one full year of operation this unique college/university level his-
tory club program has attracted national attention (History News, Febru-
ary, I974) by providing new leadership in historical awareness programs.
Various Webb chapters, for example, have helped establish regional mu-
seums and resource centers, are working in close cooperation with local
historical societies, are developing oral history programs, are sponsoring
history teacher's workshops and history fairs, and are serving as regional
cosponsors of Junior Historian chapters. Much of fhe program's strength
and vitality stem from its local leadership. Some of the more active chapter
sponsors are Gwin Morris, Wayland Baptist College; Dick Laird, Lubbock
Christian College; Richard E. Burton, Lon Morris College; Keith King
and Ed Bridges, San Jacinto College; Alex Pratt, College of the Main-
land; Fred Bruton and Brad Tibbitts, Weatherford College; and Judith
Parsons, Sul Ross State University.
Colleen Kain, administrative assistant, and Janie Melton, bookkeeper
and secretary, have become so much a part of the Association that the
director and I could hardly do without them. We depend upon them
for endless tasks and they both know how to cut through the University's
sometimes strangling red tape. Rebecca McEvoy joined the staff as recep-
tionist-secretary and Shelley Schleier continued in her position as mem-
bership secretary, sending friendly dues notices to you. After completing his
master's degree Bob Brown has rejoined us as a proof reader on the Hand-
book and as mail clerk, replacing Michael Swinney.
