The December 2003 issue of The Pine Bough, published by the History
Center, the Archives Division of the T. L. L. Memorial Library and
Archives in Diboll, has come to hand. Director Jonathan K. Gerland has
handsomely documented the fall opening of the History Center, an
11,500 square feet facility that contains research holdings and exhibi-
tions related to the region. The exhibits include a cosmetically restored
1920o Baldwin 68-ton steam locomotive, a log car, and a 1948 caboose
from the Texas South Eastern Railroad. The journal also includes
Jonathan's brief history of the engine, which was in use until 1964.
In the Winter 2004 issue of The Baylor Line magazine, former governor
Mark White, when asked to name the book that was for him "the most
influential, or thought-provoking, or enjoyable, or moving, or philo-
sophically powerful," related how Texas History Movies (a current TSHA
publication) had made a difference in his life. "I must have been very
interested in the book-or a slow reader," said White, "because even
after repeated commands to turn out the light and go to bed, I couldn't
put it down until the early morning hours. Turning the pages of that
book, I saw Sam Houston, Deaf Smith, and Santa Anna. ... As a young
boy growing up in Texas just after World War II and Korea, I found that
this and other books nourished my curiosity-no, my love-of this
nation-state called Texas."
