Our ninety-ninth annual meeting in San Antonio is just behind us,
but it's never too early to start planning for 1996. Keep in mind that the
next TSHA annual meeting-to be held at the Stouffer Hotel in Austin
on February 29-March 2-will be our looth. Like the ninety-nine that
preceded it, the 1996 meeting will feature a full complement of presen-
tations on varied aspects of Texas history. The program committee, un-
der the guidance of Janet Schmelzer, is putting together what looks to
be an outstanding program. Of course you can count on all the usual
features which we look forward to: outstanding speakers; lively auctions
of books, maps, and other artifacts; and numerous social events and re-
ceptions. More than seven hundred people registered for the San Anto-
nio meeting, so we're growing every year, and we certainly look forward
to a big turnout for our looth meeting. Put February 29-March 2 on
your calendar and join us in Austin.
The University of Texas at Arlington has announced a special sympo-
sium commemorating the 15oth anniversary of Texas statehood. "The
Challenge of Statehood: A Sesquicentennial Symposium on Texas An-
nexation," will be held on October 20-21 and will feature sessions on in-
ternational, political, ethnic, geographic/cartographic, and
social/cultural aspects of annexation.
Annexation marked the end of the Republic of Texas (1836-1845)
and the creation of a distinctive state that has been variously identified
as southern, southwestern, and western. The symposium will focus on
the social, political, and economic implications of statehood, a pivotal
event that many scholars believe led to both the Mexican War
(1846-1848) and the Civil War (1861-1865). The symposium is spon-
sored in part by the Texas Committee for the Humanities (with support
from the National Endowment for the Humanities) and by private spon-
sors in Texas. For more information, contact Richard V. Francaviglia, Di-
rector, Center for Southwestern Studies, University of Texas at
