Southwestern Historical Quarterly
lished in July, 1973, and most recently, the Centennial of the Univer-
sity of Texas was commemorated by the Quarterly in October, 1982.
This was the only scholarly effort to record major portions of the
school's history. But for all the exertions involved in those projects, they
were, in fact, only single issues of the Quarterly. This present offering
will encompass an entire volume-the full four issues.
Accordingly, the Quarterly staff has found itself much busier than
usual, and I acknowledge with grateful pleasure the scores of authors,
editors, and referees who contributed to making these numerous pages
possible. In particular, George B. Ward, managing editor, Mary M.
Standifer, senior editor, and Janice M. Pinney, assistant editor, deserve
special recognition. Faced with a reduction of the Quarterly staff by one-
fourth just as this project began, they nevertheless responded with
grace under pressure and are making every effort to produce a quality
Finally, I would like to add a personal note to these remarks. This
past spring I was honored by the Executive Council by being asked to
assume, for one year, the duties of acting director of the Association.
With Dr. Ellis's retirement in May, however, the Council asked if I would
assume these duties much earlier than we had anticipated and take the
title of interim director. I accepted the Council's offer, and because of
the generosity of Southwest Texas State University, I was able to come
to Austin three months earlier than originally planned. At this time, I
would very much like to thank the many well-wishers, colleagues, and
friends for their encouragement and support during this interim pe-
riod. The burden of the director's duties has been eased enormously by
their solicitous attentions. While these kindnesses can never be repaid,
they are, at least, appreciatively recognized at this time.
