The Association will hold its ninety-fourth annual meeting March 1 - 3,
1990, at the Hyatt Regency in Austin. As we mentioned in the October
Quarterly, the sessions run the gamut from seventeenth-century Spanish
topics to oil technology in the twentieth century. Program Committee
chairman Randolph B. (Mike) Campbell continued our tradition of
seeking out papers from all eras and areas of Texas history: oil and gas,
Spanish missions, Mexican American biographies, Texas Unionists in
the Civil War, the military in twentieth-century Texas, Texas legal devel-
opments 1846-1865, twentieth-century Mexican American women in
Texas, Anglo Texas life in peace and war 1821-1836, Dallas and labor
unions, Texas football culture, business regulation in early twentieth-
century Texas, history and folklore in the study of Texas, Catholic parish
history, small Jewish communities in Texas, oral history with those out-
side the law, maps as sources of Texas history, and many others. As al-
ways, there are papers and sessions for almost every interest.
The annual meeting is also a time for fellowship. We will have our
usual round of banquets and special speakers. Association president
Robert Calvert will give his presidential address and Mike Campbell, a
fellow of the Association, will speak at the Fellows' Luncheon on his
years of research into Texas slavery, which led to his recent book from
LSU Press, An Empire For Slavery: The Peculiar Institution in Texas, 182z1-
1865. Mike's book is the definitive work on the subject, and his talk will
be a stimulating one. We can also look forward to one of the annual
meeting highlights: the regular and silent auctions of Texas books,
maps, and other artifacts. Last year we set new records for the number
of high-quality items in the auction, and we hope to top that record this
Those of you who have been to our annual meetings before know
that they are also a time for informal and congenial discussions of
Texas history and books with old friends and new acquaintances. If you
have never been to one of our meetings, please come to Austin next
March and join us for three days of history and fun. Again we ask Asso-
ciation members to bring along a friend or two this year. In the course
of a year we all encounter people who have a deep love for Texas his-
tory yet have never heard of the Association or been to one of our an-
nual meetings. If each of us sets out to bring only one of those people
to Austin next March it will make a real difference. Mark March i-3
on your calendar, and we'll see you at the Hyatt Regency in Austin.
The High Museum of Art, along with the Atlanta Historical Society
and Emory University, will host the twentieth North American Print
