George B. Ward, the longtime assistant director of the TSHA, will retire
at the end of May after twenty years of distinguished service. He was hon-
ored at the recent TSHA annual meeting in El Paso for his two decades as
managing editor of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly and director of
publications at the Association. At the presidential banquet on Friday
evening, past TSHA president Jerry Thompson thanked George for all
his good work on behalf of the Association (especially his ability to work
well with authors and bring out the best in their work), and TSHA presi-
dent Shirley Caldwell then presented George with a striking Lalique crys-
tal eagle in recognition of his many contributions. Earlier that day, at the
business meeting, the following resolution was read and approved after
which George's colleagues and friends gave him a warm standing ovation:
