100 Southwestern Historical Quarterly July
The TSHA's 1996 annual meeting, which will be held at the Stouffer
Hotel in Austin on February 29-March 2, promises to be a special one
indeed: it will be the one hundredth annual meeting of the Association
and we will celebrate that anniversary by officially unveiling the New
Handbook of Texas. In addition, this year's program committee, chaired
by Janet Schmelzer of Tarleton State University, has pulled together a
fine-looking program that features our usual broad array of Texas top-
ics: women in nineteenth-century Texas; the recent battles over the
Alamo; law, order, and power on the Spanish frontier; new perspectives
on LBJ; Frank Erwin and the University of Texas; Apache Indian policy
during the Republic of Texas; Confederate soldiers and religion; and a
host of others. As usual, we will be sponsoring joint sessions with some of
our sister organizations, including the Texas Folklore Society (on folk
and popular music in Texas); the Texas Catholic Historical Society (on
the legacy of European Catholic missionary activity in Texas); the Texas
Historical Commission (on the Texas archeological stewardship net-
work); and others. This list is merely the tip of the iceberg. Check this
spot in upcoming Quarterlies for additional details on the program.
As always, the TSHA annual meeting is probably the best place to hear
good Texas history and have fun at the same time. We will have ban-
quets with featured speakers; award ceremonies recognizing the best his-
torical work being done on Texas; and our much anticipated auctions of
Texana, including rare books, maps, and other items. Come to Austin
next spring and help us celebrate one hundred years of the TSHA and
the publication of one of the most monumental historical works of any
time, the New Handbook of Texas. See you there.
The thirty-fifth annual Western History Association conference will be
held on October 11-14, 1995, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Denver.
Forty-nine sessions have been planned around the theme "The North
American West: New Boundaries." The welcoming reception will be
held at the new Denver Public Library, Denver Art Museum, and Col-
orado Historical Society. WHA President Norris HundleyJr. will preside
over the conference and deliver a luncheon address on Friday, October
13. Stephen Ambrose, director of the Eisenhower Center at the Univer-
sity of New Orleans, will give the banquet address that evening. Confer-
ence programs and registration material are available now. For more
