The year 2000 is almost upon us, which means that the TSHA annual
meeting is not that far away. The lo4th annual meeting will he held in
Austin at the Renaissance Hotel, March 2-4. We have finalized the forty
sessions put together by Jackie McElhaney's program committee and we
feel sure that you will find yourself having to make some difficult choices
between the excellent, diverse sessions throughout the two and one-half
days that we are together.
No matter what your specific interest is in Texas history, we likely will
have a session or two on it this year. Military history, the environment,
education, Mexican-American and African-American history, urban
studies, the arts, politics and reform, archives and preservation, Croc-
kett, La Salle and Clara Barton, the Panhandle, Galveston's great hurri-
cane, and the blackland prairie-all of these topics and many more will
be addressed in some 00to presentations.
We will have the usual joint sessions with our fellow historical organi-
zations: the Texas Folklore Society, the Texas Council for the Human-
ities, the Texas Catholic Historical Society, the Texas Jewish Historical
Society, the Heritage Farmstead Museum, the Presbyterian Historical
Society of the Southwest, the Society of Southwest Archivists, and the
Texas Commission on the Arts, among others. The choices of topics
seem endless: Texas food, the War with Mexico, the Texas Rangers,
archaeological finds of the Texas Revolution, Tejano land loss, Texas in
the year looo, a documentary film and panel on Davy Crockett and the
De la Pena Diary, Tejana history, and more. We will be mailing TSHA
members programs around the turn of the year so that as you ring in
2000 you can sit in the Y2K darkness with a lantern deciding which ses-
sions to attend.
Make sure that you attend the annual meeting in 2ooo. Austin is
always a fun place to visit with its museums, restaurants, and live music,
and of course the annual meeting itself is always a lot of fun with its full
slate of scholarly and social activities. Our special banquet speakers for
2000 will include Robert Utley speaking on the Texas Rangers, Light
Cummins discussing collegiate education in early Texas, and Norman
Brown giving his presidential address. We will, as always, feature two
great auctions-one live and one silent-of rare Texas books, maps, and
artifacts. In addition, many authors will be signing their new books. We
also will have an entire bookroom full of the leading publishers of
Texana, and rare book dealers as well. Be sure to mark your calendar for
this incomparable annual feast of Texas history. We'll see you in Austin
Here’s what’s next.
