The 10o3rd annual meeting of the TSHA, March 4-6, 1999, will be
held at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas. We can promise you three days
full of Texas history, and you are sure to find several sessions on your
favorite aspect of Lone Star history. Bonnie Campbell's program com-
mittee has put together the biggest slate of sessions ever--on subjects
ranging from art to archeology, manifest destiny to gospel music, sports
to German settlers, and many more. We will have several sessions on
Dallas-area topics, but no corner or aspect of the state's history will be
In addition to the scores of papers being presented, there is our
usual slate of keynote speakers. TSHA president Paul Gervais Bell's
speech, "Monumental Mysteries" will be presented at the Presidential
banquet on Friday. Each day of the meeting-Thursday through
Saturday-we will have a special luncheon speaker. Thursday, at the
Women and Texas History Luncheon, Elizabeth York Enstam, author of
Women and the Creation of Urban Life, Dallas, Texas, 1843-1920 will speak
on "Women, Public Life and Politics in Texas Before the Nineteenth
Century." Gregg Cantrell, author of the forthcoming, much-anticipated
biography of Stephen F. Austin, will let us follow him "In Search of
Stephen F. Austin" at Friday's Award Luncheon where TSHA prizes and
fellowships will be awarded for the best books, articles, and research
projects on Texas history. And on Saturday, the Fellows Luncheon
speaker will be Jerry D. Thompson, author of two recent TSHA books:
A Wild and Vivid Land: An Illustrated History of the South Texas Border and
Fifty Miles and a Fight: Major Samuel Peter Heintzelman's Journal of Texas
and the Cortina War. Jerry will speak on "When General Albert Sidney
Johnson Came Home to Texas: Reconstruction Politics and the
Reburial of a Hero."
Our live and silent auctions of rare Texas books, maps, art and artic-
facts will once again be a highlight of the meeting and a high point for
many collectors. Book lovers will also enjoy the many book displays by
leading publishers and numerous book-signing opportunities of new
titles by our latest scholars. And of course there will be the usual rounds
of receptions, social events, and good fellowship.
Members will soon be receiving the program, which will spell out in
detail the many wonderful talks and sessions available at this year's meet-
ing. Begin planning now because there are many, many choices. It's
Texas history at its best. We'll see you in Dallas, March 4-6. Come early,
stay late, and we know you'll have a good time.
Here’s what’s next.
