As we announced in July, the semi-annual meeting of the Texas
State Historical Association will be held in Brownsville November
7-8 in order to commemorate the 45oth anniversary of Alonso
Alvarez de Pifieda's exploration on the Texas coast. The Fort Brown
Motor Hotel will serve as meeting headquarters. Mrs. Florence John-
son Scott and Mrs. Anne L. Magee, together with the Valley historical
societies, have planned an excellent program. Members who plan to
attend might be interested in consulting John Farmer's informative
article on the Pifieda map, which appeared in the July 1959 Quarterly.
Bibliophiles will be pleased to know that the second annual meeting
of the Collectors' Institute is scheduled for November 22, 1969, in
Austin. Warren Howell, a San Francisco bookseller and publisher,
will be one of a number of outstanding speakers. His firm published
Paul Nathan's translations, The San Saba Papers. Further information
on the Collectors' Institute may be had by writing Ken Ragsdale, Box
8059, University Station, Austin, Texas 78712.
Thurber, Texas, comes back to life briefly each summer when
former Thurberites get together for reunions. Two organizations of
old-timers consolidated their groups last year and met this past June
as the Thurber Historical Association. The meeting was held in the
shadow of that tall brick smokestack which is the first thing you
see going into Thurber and the last thing you see going out. Only
six buildings remain-and a lot of industrial history. Plans for a
museum of Texas industrial history were announced as the highlight
of the two-day session.
Our attention has been called to the Council on Abandoned Mili-
tary Posts (CAMP), a nonprofit corporation whose members are
interested in the identification, location, restoration, preservation, and
memorialization of old military installations. It publishes a periodical
several times a year and a bimonthly newsletter. CAMP sponsors
yearly conferences on military history. The spring 1970 conference
will be held in El Paso, Texas, and Fort Selden, New Mexico, and
will include sessions at nearby forts in New Mexico and Texas. In-
formation can be obtained by writing Major Lloyd Clark, Box 3993,
Augusta, Georgia 30904.
