604 Southwestern Historical Quarterly April
The Texas State Historical Association's lo8th Annual Meeting last
month was another smashing success. More than 640 history lovers from
across the nation came to Austin to participate in three thought-provok-
ing days of history rediscovery and celebration, including keynote talks
by historians H. W. Brands of Austin, Mary Margaret McAllen Amberson
of San Antonio, B. Byron Price of Norman, Oklahoma, and TSHA presi-
dent George N. Green of Arlington. The meeting's forty-seven sessions
covered every aspect of Texas, from the borderlands to Texas museums,
from Texas women to John Lee Hancock's forthcoming Alamo movie,
and classic rock and blues in Texas to contemporary Texas humor. We al-
so added a Phi Alpha Theta session for the first time. Phi Alpha Theta is
the national history honorary society, and most four-year colleges and
universities in the state have a chapter. This is a great way to introduce
students to the TSHA and to the annual meeting, and we hope to make
it a tradition.
Many of you also had the chance to meet new TSHA staff members
Kathleen Pantalion, executive assistant, who organized her first annual
meeting; J. Kent Calder, director of publications; and Mary Hyde, devel-
opment coordinator. We are delighted to have them on board and look
forward to working with them. TSHA earned more than $5,000 from its
silent auction of rare books, manuscripts, maps, and other historical ma-
terials, many of which were donated by members for auction. Along with
the silent auction, the meeting's attendees enjoyed the Presidential Re-
ception at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and seeing the
wares of thirty-three book and art vendors, who displayed rare and an-
tique works as well as the latest publications about Texas and the South-
west. Thank you for making this one of our best meetings!
Our o9gth annual meeting will convene in Fort Worth on March 2-5,
2005, at the Radisson Plaza Hotel. The Program Committee, under the
leadership of former TSHA president Al Lowman of San Marcos, is al-
ready hard at work and will gather in May to finalize the program. If you
would like to present a paper, or organize a session, you should get in
touch with Al right away with your proposal. You may contact him
through the TSHA office at 1 University Station Do9ol, Austin, TX
78712. Mark your calendars now for our 1 o9th annual meeting in Fort
Worth next March. It will be great fun, with dozens of programs on Texas
history along with the usual book displays, auction, banquets, and great
Here’s what’s next.
