The Association will hold its ninety-fourth annual meeting in Austin
at the Hyatt Regency, March i-3, 1990. The 1980 meeting in Lubbock
was well attended, and we hope everyone who came to that meeting will
join us in Austin in 1990 for the beginning of our centennial decade.
(The TSHA-the state's oldest learned society-was founded in 1897.)
We especially hope that some of our new friends from West Texas who
met with us for the first time in Lubbock will come to Austin next
March. Mark it on your calendar now and plan to bring a friend who
loves Texas history but hasn't yet experienced the stimulation and good
fellowship of a TSHA meeting. See you in Austin.
The Executive Council voted unanimously to invite the Western His-
tory Association to meet in Austin in 1991 and the WHA has accepted
the invitation. The organization has met in Fort Worth and San An-
tonio, but this will be its first meeting in Austin. We will provide further
information on the meeting as the time approaches.
The University of Houston Libraries, in cooperation with the Rock-
well Fund, Inc., is organizing the Houston Conference on Forged Docu-
ments, which will be held at the Houston Marriott Medical Center on
November 2-4 and will have as its theme the authenticity and integrity
of historical document collections. The impetus for organizing the con-
ference is the discovery of several counterfeit Texas imprints in the col-
lections of the University of Houston Libraries. The conference will ex-
amine the evidence of forged documents that have found their way
into the collections of university libraries and large research-oriented
public libraries, archives, historical societies, and museums, as well as
into privately held collections. This meeting will afford the first occa-
sion for a large and diverse audience to gather, to learn, and to partici-
pate in discussions of the significant implications of these discoveries.
The conference will examine issues concerning the credibility of docu-
ment collections and their impact on scholarly research. Further, it will
explore protocols that institutions may adopt in order to deal honestly
and responsibly with forgeries, or totally fabricated documents, once
they are discovered. The program has been structured to give ample
and immediate opportunity for audience participation during each of
the four sessions. The proceedings will be published in book form to
increase public awareness of forged documents and to ensure the widest
possible dissemination of the information and ideas generated at the
