The Association will hold its ninety-third annual meeting in Lubbock
at the Holiday Inn at the Civic Center, March 2-4, 1989.
The TSHA Executive Council voted at its May 30, 1987, meeting to
sponsor the twentieth annual meeting of the North American Print
Conference in Austin, November 9-12. The subject of the conference
will be "Prints and Printmaking of Texas."
"The Print Conference is one of the most important meetings for
people interested in historical prints," said TSHA director Ron Tyler.
"I have been going for more than fifteen years and always enjoy myself
and learn something. The Conference met in Fort Worth in 1978, and
I am happy that we will be bringing them back to Texas."
A number of other institutions are cosponsoring the conference, in-
cluding the Barker Texas History Center, the Center for Studies in
Texas History, the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the
Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery, and the Texas Memorial Museum,
all at the University of Texas at Austin. We are in the process of plan-
ning exhibits, receptions, and a trip out to Coupland for bar-b-que, so
mark your calendar now for the North American Print Conference
and contact our office for further information.
The theme for National History Day, 1988, is "Frontiers in History:
People, Places, Ideas." Junior and senior high school students from all
across Texas will compete on that topic in Austin at Texas History Day,
May 6 and 7, 1988. First- and second-place winners will advance to the
national competition held in Washington, D.C., in June. Students com-
pete in seven categories-historical papers, individual projects, group
projects, individual performances, group performances, individual
media presentations, and group media presentations. There are also
four special award categories: the three best entries on black culture in
Texas, the three best entries on women in Texas, the best entry on
American colonial history, and the best entry using oral history. There
are twenty-two regional history fairs across the state, and we are ex-
pecting that about 850-900oo students who compete in those fairs will be
eligible to go on to the state level. In related news, the Junior Historian
Annual Meeting will be held April 8 and 9, 1988, in Austin. Exhibits
will be in the Texas Union Ballroom.
