it be permitted to use the material gathered for the Handbook of Texas
project to produce a "Handbook of Victoria County." A cooperative
publication planned for distribution this fall is the result of the collab-
orative effort. Members of the VCHC have contributed a number of
articles for the book, which will also be used in the revision of the Hand-
book of Texas. The book is primarily the work, however, of Craig Roell, a
native of Victoria who spent two years as scholar-in-residence at the As-
sociation working on Victoria County articles. The Executive Council is
particularly interested in the "Handbook of Victoria County" because it
gives the Association a way to share the research for the new Handbook
before its 1995 publication date. It has also focused interest in the
VCHC on what topics from Victoria should be included in the new
The Association membership is up 103 members over this time last
year, which is the largest membership we have had since J. Conrad
Dunagan's successful campaign of 1986. We need to get more members

you can make good use of some of our membership brochures, please
let us know, and we will send them along.

the other on the Texas State Capitol. Dobie, Webb, and the Capitol all
came into being in 1888, so we had a number of important hundredth
anniversaries to celebrate and scrutinize from the historical perspective
of a century.
We are pleased that the number and diversity of manuscripts that we
receive to be considered for publication continues to increase. This has
allowed us to choose from a broad range of pieces and to publish ar-
ticles that cover many topics and use many different methodologies.
Since the last report we have received forty-four manuscripts for con-
sideration. Six have been accepted for publication; five have been ac-
cepted pending successful revisions by the authors; fourteen have been
