It may seem like a long time off, but we are already planning the
1991 annual meeting of the Association, which will be held in Dallas.
John Crain of the Dallas Historical Society and Tom Smith of the Dallas
County Historical Commission are helping us with local arrangements
to insure that it will be a special meeting. It will have been six years
since we last met in North Texas (Fort Worth in 1985), and we are look-
ing forward to coming back. Reserve early March 1991 and watch the
Quarterly and Riding Line for more details on the Dallas meeting.
For many years the University of Texas at Austin and some of its
finest historians have studied and written about Mexico. The Institute
of Latin American Studies at UT has solidified that connection recently
by establishing a new Mexican Center within the ILAS. The purpose
of the Mexican Center is to assist in the coordination of Mexican and
Mexico-related research activities at the university and to promote
scholarly research on Mexico. UT is ideally suited for such a center. It
is home to the Benson Latin American Collection, named after our
good friend Nettie Lee Benson, which is considered one of the best col-
lections of contemporary and historical material on Mexico. UT Austin
is also home to more than fifty faculty members from a wide range of
disciplines who are studying some aspect of Mexico. More than sixty
graduate students at an advanced stage in their research on Mexico are
also located here. The Association's friend and supporter C. B. Smith
some years ago established a program, now administered by the Mexi-
can Center, which sponsors graduate seminars on Mexico each semes-
ter. All of these resources and activities make for a rich environment in
which to study Mexico. For more information about the Mexican Cen-
ter, contact its director, Bryan Roberts (a sociologist who holds the
C. B. Smith, Sr., Centennial Chair) at the Mexican Center, Institute of
