Because our annual meeting schedule was altered for the TSHA cen-
tennial, we have not had an annual meeting outside of Austin in three
years. That is about to change. On March 4-6, 1999, we will be getting
together at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas for the lo3rd TSHA annual
meeting, and it promises to be a great one. The program committee,
with Bonnie Campbell as chair, has come up with our biggest slate of
sessions ever. It is hard to imagine a Texas history subject that will not be
touched on. We always try to have at least a few sessions on the host
city's history, and this year there are three, including one titled "Fort
Worth vs. Dallas" which highlights that famous family feud. A session on
the impact of World War II on the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and another
on the historic sites and parks in the Peter's Colony and Farmers Branch,
will also provide a regional focus.
Regardless of your interest, there no doubt will be a session that you
will want to attend. There will be papers on Texas music, Texas firearms,
high school football, Manifest Destiny, German settlers, workers and cot-
ton on the Texas-Mexican border, artist Frank Reaugh, women and Civil
Rights in Texas, maps and Texas, entrepreneurs in Spanish colonial
Texas, and a host of others. Our meetings are always enlivened by the
joint sessions that we sponsor with some of our sister organizations, in-
cluding for 1999 the Texas Folklore Society, the Texas Catholic Histori-
cal Society, and the Texas Supreme Court Historical Society.
As usual, the meeting will be punctuated with numerous activities and
programs. Our special banquet speeches include Paul Bell's presidential
address, a woman's luncheon address from Elizabeth York Enstam, and
the fellow's luncheon address by council member Jerry Thompson.
There will, of course, be our two auctions of Texana-one silent, one
live-with hundreds of books, maps, and other items of historical inter-
est. There are always some great buys to be had and the competition
with old friends and fellow bidders is always fun. There will be author
book signings, displays of books by the foremost publishers of Texas his-
tory, our awards ceremonies for the best historical works of the year, and
a general atmosphere of learning and friendship.
If you have some special area of Texas history that you love-sports
and the Southwest Conference, architecture on the border, women in
the twentieth century, archeology, African-American religion, history in
the suburbs, gospel music, the Texas Republic, Goliad-the 1999 annu-
al meeting will have a session for you. Mark March 4-6, 1999, on your
calendar, and join us in Dallas for three days of learning, enjoyment,
and Texas history at its best.
