Affairs of the Association
Binkley's The Texas Revolution in every junior and senior high school
in the state. The printing and placement of this important work was
made possible by grants to the Association from Texas Commerce
Bancshares and the Brown Foundation. A grant from Fred H. Moore
and the Mobil Foundation made it possible for the Association also to
reprint copies of The Texas Revolution for sale to the public. The
book is now available in both hardback ($1o) and paperback ($4.50).
Over the next few years I would like to see the Association solicit
grant money to enable it to develop a good Texas history library in each
junior and senior high school in the state. To paraphrase J. Frank

illustrations. The production costs of Berlandier's Journey will run

the printing costs of Texas Vistas: Selections from the SOUTHWESTERN
HISTORICAL QUARTERLY. The second of the planned fall releases, this
volume will be a handy supplement for college courses in Texas his-
tory as well as for general reading on the history of Texas.
The third item to be released this fall is the Cumulative Index for
volumes 61-70 of the Quarterly. The Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund
made a grant of $2,500 to partially cover editorial costs, and a grant of
$5,000 was made by an anonymous foundation to help cover printing
SOUTHWESTERN HISTORICAL QUARTERLY
This July 198o issue of the Quarterly marks the beginning of a new
volume, the eighty-fourth, and readers will notice something a little
different about it: the size. The old format, 61/2" x 91/2", resulted in
wasted paper. That is, when the full-sized sheet was folded and
trimmed to the Quarterly size, a substantial amount of paper was
