By now you should have received the program for the TSHA's 0o4th
annual meeting, which will be held at the Renaissance Hotel in Austin,
March 2-4, 2ooo. The program is again full of presentations on Texas
topics that cover a wide variety of subjects ranging from military history
and historic preservation to the arts, politics, and urban studies. Jackie
McElhaney's program committee did a wonderful job of providing us
with two and a half days full of superlative Texas history, and we eagerly
look forward to the meeting. Plan now to join us.
The scores of presentations will be highlighted by our outstanding
group of keynote speakers at various banquets and functions. Thursday
at the Women and Texas History Luncheon, former TSHA staff member
and student of Association President Norman D. Brown Judith M.
McArthur will speak on "Telling New Stories: What Became of the Texas
Suffragists?" Then on Friday, at the Awards Luncheon, Robert M. Utley,
retired chief historian of the National Park Service, will present "The
Texas Rangers: A Newcomer Looks at an Old Subject," and we will pre-
sent nine awards and fellowships for the best books, articles, and
research proposals of the year. Friday evening's banquet will feature
TSHA president Norman D. Brown's address, "Garnering Votes for
'Cactus Jack': John Nance Garner, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the 1932
Democratic Nomination for President."
The Fellows' Luncheon at noon Saturday is open to everyone-not
just TSHA Fellows-and the speaker will be Light Cummins on "Early
Collegiate Education in the Republic and Ante Bellum Texas." We also
anticipate that a number of new Fellows will be elected and inducted
into membership on that occasion, so join us in helping to honor many
of those who have produced much of the distinguished historical works
that we all enjoy.
The TSHA auctions (both regular and silent) will again be a high-
light of the annual meeting, and Michael Heaston and his auction com-
mittee have assembled a number of excellent items for us to bid on.
Rare and unusual Texas books, maps, and artifacts will once again be
available. Please note that there is one change in the auction schedule
this year: the silent auction bidding will close at 6 p.m. Friday evening
instead of Saturday morning. This means that you won't have to miss
the Saturday morning sessions to protect your bids, and we will be able
to check out earlier on Saturday with less crowding. In addition to the
auctions, you also will enjoy the many book displays by the leading pub-
lishers of Texana, and we will have a number of book-signing events by
Here’s what’s next.
