We were pleased to hear about the Carter Museum's acquisition of
the fine oil painting A Cloudy Day, Bluebonnets near San Antonio, Texas, by
Julian Onderdonk (1882-1922). This impressionist work was acquired
in honor of Lady Bird Johnson for her tireless contributions to Texas
and the United States, and will be proudly displayed as a part of the
museum's regional collection. Prints and note cards are available from
the Amon Carter Museum Store at the number listed below.
The Museum also published its first children's book, Cowboy with a
Camera, Erwin E. Smith: Cowboy Photographer. Don Worcester, historian
and author of thirty-one other books, presents the story and art of Erwin
E. Smith as Smith documented his own and others' lives on the cattle
trails of the early twentieth century. The book presents numerous
images of cowboys as they relate to the celebrated mythological figure of
the west, and can serve as a supplemental teaching source and sound
edition to western Americana libraries. Intended for children ages nine
and above, Cowboy with a Camera is available from the Amon Carter
Museum Store for $18.95 hardcover. If you have questions about any of
the above exhibits or materials, please contact the Public Relations
Office at telephone 817/738-1933, or e-mail ruthann.rugg@cartermu-
The Texas Council for the Humanities celebrated its twenty-fifth
anniversary on March 13 at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and
Museum in Austin. We applaud the Texas Council for the Humanities
for touching the lives of millions by presenting the humanities as a
source of inspiration and insight into every aspect of life. Grounded on
the premise that democracy requires a thoughtful, responsible citizenry,
TCH programs help to foster what scholar Charles Black called "the
humane imagination"-the capacity to envision and appreciate the lives
and traditions of our neighbors across the street and across the globe,
today and in the distant past.
The celebration included exhibits on Texas statehood and Latino lit-
erature in the United States, offered a tour of the LBJ Library and
Museum, featured speakers William R. Ferris and James F. Veninga, and
held a festival of award-winning feature and documentary films.
If you've enjoyed this issue's focus on Germans in Texas, you'll be inter-

Texas at Austin, will facilitate the workshops. For more information or to
