Southwestern Historical Quarterly
The TSHA annual meeting for 1999 will be held at the Fairmont Ho-
tel in Dallas, March 4-6. The program committee for the meeting, work-
ing under the direction of chair Bonnie Campbell, has put together the
largest annual meeting program to date with some thirty-eight sessions
planned. As at other annual meetings in the recent past, you will find a
real smorgasbord of choices. There will be sessions and papers on:
archeology at military sites; Texas music (including country, gospel, and
rhythm and blues); election of judges in Texas; the history of the South-
west conference; schisms among Baptists; Jefferson, Texas; rivalries be-
tween Mexico and the Republic of Texas; Manifest Destiny and Texas;
and German influence in the Lone Star State. This brief list is just the
tip of the iceberg. As usual, we will also be jointly sponsoring sessions
with organizations including some of our old friends such as the Texas
Catholic Historical Society and the Texas Folklore Society, plus newer
organizations such as the Texas Supreme Court Historical Society. Oth-
er historical groups working with us in 1999 are the Texas Baptist His-
torical Association, Texas Parks and Wildlife, the Texas Historical
Commission, and the Texas Oral History Association.
Since we will be in Dallas, it is appropriate that we have several ses-
sions with a local focus. One such session, "Fort Worth vs. Dallas," will
look at the storied rivalry between the two neighbors. Another will focus
on the impact of World War II on the area, and a third will examine the
historic sites and parks in the Peter's Colony and Farmers Branch.
No matter what your Texas history interests-railroads, maps, women
and the law, firearms, Spanish colonial history, Texas high school foot-
ball, African-American women and civil rights, Fort St. Louis or Champs
d'Asile -we can guarantee that you will have so many wonderful alterna-
tives that you will have to make some hard choices in deciding which ses-
sions to attend. But that is only if you attend the meeting, so mark your
calendars now for March 4-6, 1999, in Dallas.
In addition to all of these presentations, and special banquet speakers,
we are already at work organizing two of the best auctions (one live, one
silent) of Texas books, maps, and artifacts that we have ever had. There
will also be author book signings; displays by many of the leading pub-
lishers of Texana; social activities; and the general Texas-friendly atmos-
phere that prevails when we all get together to share our common love
of Texas history and culture. We will provide more details about the
1999 meeting in upcoming issues of the Quarterly and Riding Line, but
reserve March 4-6 for our 1o3rd annual meeting in Dallas. See you
there, and bring some friends.
