We fell slightly behind our projections when we ran out of articles to
edit last fall. We will not lose much time, however, because we have di-
verted our copy editors to analyzing the topical printouts with our ad-
visory editors, a process that they are continuing while editing approxi-
mately three-quarters of their time, and one that is necessary to finish
the Handbook anyway. Our efforts to reach volunteer authors by attend-
ing various meetings and by sending our county researchers to the
counties they are working on have begun to pay off in terms of the
number of manuscripts submitted by volunteer authors. Dr. Martha
Allen's history class at Southwestern University contributed 137 com-
munity articles this past fall, and four student interns from Southwest-
ern worked with us this spring.
Our program on "Women and Texas History: A Conference" is
drawing nearer. Sponsored by the Center for Studies in Texas History,
the Barker Texas History Center, the Mexican American Studies Cen-
ter, the Women Studies Center, the College of Liberal Arts (all at
the University of Texas at Austin), the Texas Historical Commission,
the RGK Foundation of Austin, the Woman's Foundation of Texas, the
Foundation for Women's Resources, the Lyndon B. Johnson Library
and Museum, and Texas Woman's University, the conference will en-
able us to assess an important aspect of historical research and show-
case some new research.
There will be approximately thirty sessions on such topics as litera-
ture, art, politics, labor, war, domesticity, ethnicity, and race, plus "how
to" sessions on such subjects as methodology, finding resources, getting
published, and teaching about women. In addition, the Barker Texas
History Center is sponsoring a special exhibit of its own resources and
of the photographic exhibit "Rural Texas Women at Work, 1930-
1960." Conference keynoter is Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, Eleonore Raoul
Professor of the Humanities and director of women's studies at Emory
University, whose subject is "Texas Women in Southern Women's His-
tory." We will also be able to develop new Handbook topics out of this
conference and, perhaps, find authors for some of the articles. Planning
continues for a conference on Mexican American history in Texas.
The Development Committee continues to raise funds for the Hand-
book. We have sent applications to a number of foundations and, while
Here’s what’s next.
