As you read this, we will be packing our bags and book boxes for the
trip to Corpus Christ for our io6th annual meeting on March 7-9. It is
the first time that we have ever met in the city by the bay, and we are
looking forward to it. Our meeting corresponds with the city's celebra-
tion of the sesquicentennial of its incorporation-1 852-so there will be
lots of historical things to see and do.
The hard-working program committee, under Chair Bruce A.
Glasrud, has done its work. Perhaps you noticed the terrific depth,
diversity, and interest that they managed to pack into the thirty-five
sessions that they have organized when you received the program for
the meeting. Once again, there is something for everyone-anyone
interested in any aspect of Texas will find something here.
TSHA President Jerry Thompson of Texas A&M International- Laredo
is, no doubt, still honing his presidential address on the computer, but
he promises high adventure on Friday evening, March 8, in the retelling
of "Winfield Scott's Army of Occupation as Pioneer Alpinists." Jerry
claims that he has also climbed Popocatepetl and Citlaltepetl and will
share some of his photography with us. Our other banquet speakers
include Caroline Castillo Crimm, "Tempest in a Teacup: Petra Vela de
Vidal Kenedy and the Sources"; David G. McComb, "A Conversation with
Joe B. Frantz," former director of the TSHA and a professor of history at
both the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University-Corpus
Christi; and Ronald L. Davis, "John Wayne and the Making of The Alamo. "
We will close the meeting with a tour of the fabled King Ranch, which
will include the King Ranch Museum, the saddle shop, and historic
downtown Kingsville in addition to the ranch itself. A minimum of thir-
ty-five persons must register for the tour, which will last approximately
There is still time for you to register for the meeting, the receptions,
the tours, and the book auctions. It promises to be a great time, so join us
in packing your bags. You can buy the books at the meeting. About twen-
ty-five of the state's finest publishers and booksellers will be on hand to
tempt you with their wares, new and used. And auctioneer J. P. Bryan Jr.
will wield the hammer at the annual memorial auction of Texana at 3
P.M. on Friday, March 8. The silent auction will also be held as usual.
