Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Each year, more than 130 professional and lay historians and students
gather to present the fruits of their research at the annual meeting of the
Texas State Historical Association, and another 500-plus history lovers
come to listen, question, discuss, and, yes, in some cases, debate the his-
tory of our state. Even among the many thriving state historical societies
around the country, the annual TSHA rendezvous is perhaps the largest
such assembly in the country. If you have ever attended one of these year-
ly conclaves, you are probably hooked, so you should tell your friends and
fellow history lovers about our next annual meeting, which will be held
on March 4-6, 2oo4, at the Renaissance Hotel in Austin. This is a home-
coming in a way, because the annual meeting has toured the state during
the past three years-with great meetings in Houston, Corpus Christi,
and El Paso-and this will be the first meeting to be held in Austin since
This past spring's meeting in El Paso was a splendid event, with more
than 650 persons in attendance, including more than 12o new members
from the El Paso area. We expect no less this coming March, with out-
standing speakers already scheduled and a terrific program, assembled by
Ken Hafertepe and his able committee. Make your plans now to attend
the lo8th TSHA annual meeting. Anyone who loves the subject-espe-
cially anyone who teaches it--should plan now to be on hand for the fel-
lowship and scholarship of the TSHA annual meeting. As usual, there will
be programs on every aspect of Texas history, from the pre-historic to the
contemporary, with special attention paid to such enticing subjects as
"Writing History Along the Lower Rio Grande," "The National Park Ser-
vice and Texas," "Archeological Footprints of the Texas Revolution," and
"John Lee Hancock's Alamo Movie" along the way.
The Southwestern Historical Quarterly received another laurel from the
Western History Association when David E. Narrett, of the University of
Texas at Arlington, was named as the recipient of its Bolton-Kinnaird
Award in Borderlands History at its 43rd annual meeting in Fort Worth.
David took home a cash prize of $500 for his article, '"Jos6 Bernardo
Guti6rrez de Lara: Caudillo of the Mexican Republic in Texas," which ap-
peared in the October 2002, issue of the Quarterly. The award recognizes
the best article on any phase of borderlands history, from the Floridas to
the Californias, from the sixteenth century to the present. David was
trained as an American colonialist and adapted his research to Texas and
the borderlands after landing a job at UTA. His first appearance at the
TSHA was the 1996 annual meeting when he gave a banquet talk entitled
Here’s what’s next.
