The ninety-fourth annual meeting of the Association will be held
March 1-3, 199o, at the Hyatt Regency in Austin. The meeting is al-
ready taking shape and it looks to be another superb group of sessions.
The Program Committee met in May and chairman Randolph B. (Mike)
Campbell and his committee put together a strong program that ranges
far and wide both chronologically and thematically. There will be papers
that look back at the Spanish missions and others that discuss the role
of Texas oil and gas in World War II. This only begins to suggest the
range of topics. Other presentations will discuss Texas unionists before
and during the Civil War, Mexican American labor activity, race and
urban Texas, unionism in Dallas, twentieth-century Mexican American
women, legal development in Texas from the time of statehood through
the Civil War, the military in twentieth-century Texas, Anglo-Texans in
peace and war from 1821 to 1836, the relationship between the disci-
plines of history and folklore, small Jewish communities in Texas, and
cartographic sources for studying Texas history, among others. As al-
ways we are pleased to be jointly sponsoring sessions with some of our
old friends such as the Texas Catholic Historical Society and some new
acquaintances including the Presbyterian Historical Society of the
Southwest. Other groups who are putting together sessions with us for
1990o are: the Texas Folklore Society, the Texas Historical Commission,
the Texas Oral History Association, the Texas Baptist Historical Society,
the Society of Southwest Archivists, the Texas Association of Mu-
seums, the Texas Jewish Historical Society, and the Texas Association
for the Advancement of History. All of these fine organizations bring
diversity as well as new approaches to Texas history. Of course we will
have all of the usual events that make the annual meeting weekend so
interesting and fun: banquets, special guest speakers, social events, the
regular and silent auctions of Texas books and artifacts, plus the good
fellowship and stimulation of getting together with hundreds of others
who share our deep commitment to the study and preservation of
Texas's long and fascinating history. One of our goals this year can be
accomplished only with your help. We are constantly meeting people
who love Texas history but have never been to our annual meeting.
This year we are asking each of you to single out a friend or two with
that special feel for Texas history and tell them about the Association
and our annual meeting. Show them your program when it arrives.
Tell them that we welcome their active participation. And then have
them come along with you to the meeting so that they can get ac-
Here’s what’s next.
