Lubbock is the site of the ninety-third annual meeting of the Texas
State Historical Association, which will take place March 2-4 at the
Holiday Inn. It has been a few years since we last met west of Walter
Prescott Webb's famous 98th meridian, and we are looking forward to
our rendezvous out on the High Plains. Many people have commented
about the excitement and good fellowship of recent annual meetings,
and our good friends Alwyn Barr and David Murrah in Lubbock have
worked hard to insure another special get-together.
Several sessions will have a distinctive West Texas twang, including
programs on J. Evetts Haley and Texas history, West Texas fiddling and
western swing, the frontier military experience, southwestern ranch-
ing, and others. But this is just the beginning. We will also have papers
on the usual wide range of Texas-related topics: folklore, sports, con-
servation, the Texas Revolution, Indians, economics, Civil War and Re-
construction, religion, ethnicity, and more. But as many of you know
who have been meeting with us over the years, TSHA annual meetings
are much more than the excellent sessions. As always, we will have our
annual auction of Texana (books, art, and artifacts), including another
silent auction, which was a new and well-received feature last year. The
usual round of social events and banquets with guest speakers will fill
the slate. Just as important as these activities will be the opportunity
to make new acquaintances, renew old friendships, and visit with the
many historical and scholarly organizations that will be jointly sponsor-
ing sessions with us. We hope to see you in Lubbock March 2-4 for
what promises to be yet another three days of stimulating presenta-
tions. Surely every Association member has a friend or two who loves
Texas history but has never been to one of our meetings. Bring them
along this year and introduce them to the good scholarship and fellow-
ship of a TSHA annual meeting. See you in Lubbock.
The Gulf Coast History and Humanities Conference will meet in
Mobile, Alabama, next year for the first time in its eighteen-year his-
tory. The theme of the conference, scheduled for March 9-11, 1989,

South Alabama, which has joined the University of West Florida and
Pensacola Junior College in sponsoring the conference, will host the
meeting. Sessions will be held at the Riverview Hotel, overlooking his-
toric Mobile Bay. Proposals for papers or for sessions should be sub-
mitted to Dr. George Daniels or Dr. Michael Thomason at the History
