Cover: Barton Sprzngs, Austzn, Texas by Andrew M. Rumsey, 1882. Oil painting,
20 x 24 inches. Courtesy Austzn Hzstory Center, Austin Public Lbrary.
This painting by primitive artist Andrew M. Rumsey, an Austin horti-
culturist, portrays Barton Springs, a bucolic spot on Barton Creek near
where it flows into the Colorado River at Austin. An inviting landmark,
Barton Springs attracted Indians, early white settlers, and other people
who have travelled through and lived in Central Texas. Barton Springs
has come to symbolize the natural spirit of the city of Austin, which is
located on a geological fault line where the rich prairies to the east meet
the beautifully rugged Hill Country to the west. A painting of Barton
Springs makes an appropriate cover for this special issue, which fo-
cuses on Austin, the capital city named for Stephen F. Austin, known
as the Father of Texas.
