The Handbook of Texas
The Handbook of Texas project is one of the major scholarly ef-
forts in the history of our state. The researching, writing, editing, and
publication of the new six-volume Handbook, including a compre-
hensive index, will cost an estimated $3,000,000. Without the generous
intellectual and financial support of the Association's members, foun-
dations, corporations, and cosponsoring institutions the new Hand-
book of Texas would simply not be possible.
In recent months, the generosity of our membership was made clear
when they responded so positively to the Texas Committee for the
Humanities' challenge grant. The TCH agreed to award the Associa-
tion a grant of up to $50,000, matching with one dollar every two
dollars we raised for the Handbook project. In just over three weeks,
more than i50 of the Association's members sent in checks ranging
from $5 to $1io,ooo. Additional gifts from other individuals, institu-
tions, and foundations pushed the total contributions over our goal
The importance of our members' contributions cannot be over-
emphasized. Gifts of $5, $10o, $25, or $5o add up quickly. Contribu-
tions of any size make a great difference. With our members' continued
support, the new Handbook will be one of the classic works of our
time. We will seek your help often in the future and ask that you give
generously to this important work.
