Southwestern Historical Quarterly
The 1993 annual meeting of the TSHA will be held in Houston,
March 4-6, 1993, at the Stouffer Greenway Plaza Hotel. We're already
planning the meeting, and we want you to mark your calendar now so
that we can be sure to get together next spring. Chairman Gregg Can-
trell and the members of the program committee are putting together
what looks to be an outstanding group of sessions. Check this spot in
future issues of the Quarterly for more details on the sessions. As always
sessions will cover a wide variety of topics and time periods, from con-
quistadors to contemporary cowboys. Mark your calendars and plan to
be with us in Houston next March for three days of history, Texana
auctions, social functions, and visiting with friends.
On October 3-9, 1992, as part of its Adventures in the Past initiative,
the Bureau of Land Management and others will host a public tour
combined with two symposiums to interpret the role and legacy of
Spain and Spain's interaction with the land and native peoples in the
settlement of the American Southwest. The event, whose primary fo-
cus is in Arizona and New Mexico, has been recognized as an official
Quincentenary event by the national Columbus Quincentenary Jubilee
Commission. BLM has enlisted the support of several partners in spon-
soring this commemorative event: the National Park Service; U.S For-
est Service; U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; the University of Arizona;
and the University of New Mexico.
The commemoration, titled "A Meeting of Two Worlds," features
three separate attractions-two symposiums and a bus tour-which
may be combined as desired. The opening symposium in Tucson be-
gins the event. The five-day bus tour leaves immediately after the sym-
posium, taking participants to Spanish colonial and Native American
contact sites in Arizona and New Mexico. The tour will give partici-
pants an opportunity to "step into the past" by visiting sites that are a
part of the history discussed at the symposiums. Historians, Native
Americans, and/or interpretive specialists will be at each stop along the
route to conduct site-specific tours. Native Americans and others with
special perspectives or historical expertise will ride with the partici-
pants on the buses to provide narratives en route. The tour concludes
in Albuquerque at the location of the final symposium. Registration
costs are the following: Tucson symposium, $45; Albuquerque sym-
posium, $45; bus tour, single occupancy, $420; double, $570. For fur-
ther information, write to Gail Acheson, Bureau of Land Management,
P.O. Box 16563, Phoenix, Arizona 85011; 602/640-5504.
