The 1989 annual meeting of the Texas State Historical Association
will be held in Lubbock at the Holiday Inn, March 2-4. With the help
and guidance of Association members David Murrah, chairman of the
Local Arrangements Committee, and Alwyn Barr, chairman of the
Program Committee, the Association has planned an exciting meeting.
Participants can look forward to our usual slate of activities: the annual
auction of Texas books, art, and artifacts (including a silent auction,
which was so well received at this year's meeting); social events and ban-
quets with special guest speakers; and a full program of over two dozen
sessions on a wide range of Texas topics. Because we are meeting in the
Panhandle this year, a number of the sessions will focus on topics re-
lated to the western reaches of the state, including the frontier army,
western swing music, the Big Bend, and ranching, among others. We
will also have our usual complement of sessions, which will examine vir-
tually every aspect of the Texas experience: the Junior Historian move-
ment, the battle of San Jacinto and the San Jacinto museum, Texas in
the twenty-first century, Texas women as community builders, violence
during the Civil War and Reconstruction, the writing of biographies,
social and racial tensions in Texas, engineering and the development of
Texas, folklore and artistic expression, and a host of other topics, from
sports in Texas to buffalo hunters. We are pleased to be once again
jointly sponsoring sessions with a number of organizations that have
added to the interest and diversity of our annual meetings: the Texas
Committee for the Humanities, the Texas Historical Commission, the
Texas Baptist Historical Society, the Texas Association for the Ad-
vancement of History, the Society of Southwest Archivists, the Texas
Catholic Historical Society, the Texas Foundation for Women's Re-
sources, the Texas Folklore Society, and the Military Studies Institute.
Those coming to the 1989 meeting will have an opportunity to tour
Texas Tech, the Ranching Heritage Center, the Southwest Collection,
and other sites of cultural and historic interest. Be sure to mark March
2-4, 1989, on your calendar now and plan to join us in Lubbock for
three days of lively presentations and good fellowship.
