Southwestern Historical Quarterly
The Texas State Historical Association's annual meeting returns to Austin
this year after three years away, and we have an excellent program planned.
The meeting will be March 4-6 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel, and mem-
bers should make plans to attend. Keep in mind also that if you bring a
friend who joins the association as a new member, they will receive a free reg-
istration to the meeting. The full program was mailed in January and is avail-
able on the association's web site (http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/events/).
Call the office at 512/471-1525 if you would like to receive additional copies
of the printed catalog to distribute.
This year's meeting will be a salute to Texas History Month, which the
legislature established and Gov. Rick Perry signed into law this past sum-
mer. Guest speakers-Mary Margaret McAllen Amberson, H. W. Brands
Jr., B. Byron Price, and TSHA President George N. Green-will entertain
and enlighten us along with the participants in forty-seven sessions on
topics on every aspect of Texas, organized by Program Chair Kenneth
Hafertepe and his able committee. On Saturday, John and Donna Britt
will conduct a tour of the beautiful Hill Country town of Fredericksburg
and the LBJ Ranch.
The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, which has opened
since we last met in Austin, will co-host the reception for incoming
TSHA President John Crain of the Summerlee Foundation at the muse-
um on Thursday evening at 6:30 P.M. The current exhibition, Texas Flags
(see description below), will be open during the reception, and all regis-
tered attendees at the annual meeting will receive a discount on muse-
um admission charges during the weekend of the meeting.
Interspersed with all these activities will be the silent auction, organized
by bookseller Michael Heaston and his committee, presenting a superb
collection of books, maps, manuscripts, and historical materials for your
collection. As usual, the state's premier publishers will be on hand to show
you their new publications in the book exhibit room, and the TSHA will
have our usual "no tax" publications sale on Friday and Saturday.
What better way is there to celebrate Texas History Month than to
attend the TSHA's annual meeting? See you there.
The TSHA's tenth Texas History Contest on Texas colleges and uni-
versities drew eighty-two responses, by far the most we've received since
we began running these quizzes more than two years ago. Our thanks to
all who participated and especially to Stephen C. Cook of Houston for
writing the quiz.
Congratulations to Evelyn Crocker, whose entry was the first perfect
score received, and to Steve Zscheck, whose entry was chosen at random
Here’s what’s next.
