The Association will hold its annual meeting March 2-4 at the Dris-
kill and Stephen F. Austin hotels in Austin. The Driskill will serve as
the headquarters hotel. The registration table will be set up on the
mezzanine of the Driskill. Members are urged to preregister for the
meeting, using the form which appears in the printed program. Fifteen
publishers and dealers, the largest number ever, will exhibit books in
the registration area.
Nineteen sessions, including joint sessions with the Society of South-
west Archivists, the Texas Historical Commission, and the Texas Cath-
olic Historical Society, will make up this year's program. The joint ses-
sions provide an added dimension to the meeting, and we are pleased to
have these fine organizations meet with us.
This year's program will include two special features that all should
find interesting and entertaining. On Friday evening at 9 P.M., after the
banquet, a group will do a living history presentation: "An Evening
with the Boys in Gray." This reenactment of Confederate soldiers in
camp will delight anyone who has an interest in the Civil War. Kirk D.
Lyons and George C. Susat will star in this performance. The other
special event, a mini-tour of newly opened McKinney Falls State Park,
will take place Saturday afternoon. McKinney Park is located a few
miles outside of Austin. Those attending the session will have an op-
portunity to see what resulted from the interaction of historical and
archeological research in planning that park.
The various sessions will include papers on politics, preservation, the
cowboy, sports, urbanization, diplomacy, museums, blacksmithing, ar-
chitecture, reconstruction, law, business, church history, Texana collect-
ing, county records, and history in the classroom.
Ralph W. Steen, former president of Stephen F. Austin University
and long-time member of the Association, will speak on "Governor
Miriam A. Ferguson" at the luncheon on Friday, March 3. President
Ernest Wallace's dinner address, "The Howling of the 'Coyotes,' " will
deal with the abortive effort to establish a state in West Texas. " 'We
Had to Run the Gauntlet'--A Confederate Agent in Europe," will be
the topic of Haskill Monroe's luncheon address on Saturday, March 4.
The East Texas Historical Society will meet in Beaumont on Febru-
ary 24 and 25, 1978.
