The ninety-first annual meeting of the Association will be held March
5-7, 1987, at the San Luis Hotel in Galveston. Everyone staying at the
San Luis will have a private terrace which looks out over the Gulf. It will
be a delightful way to spend the first weekend in March. The Program
Committee, chaired by William H. Brophy, has planned twenty-six ses-
sions for this year's conference. The sessions will cover a wide range of
Texas topics: "The Galveston Legacy," "The Future of Texas History,"
"Oil in Texas," "Health Care of Texans: Multiple Roles for Women,"
"U.S.S. Texas, Fighting Dreadnought: Ship of the Line in Two World
Wars," and many others. Also meeting with us in Galveston will be
twelve other learned societies and organizations. In addition to inter-
esting sessions, the Galveston meeting will provide an opportunity to
explore and enjoy one of Texas's unique cities. The Bishop's Palace,
Ashton Villa, the Strand, the 1836 Samuel May Williams Home, and
many other historic and scenic sites are found in the Galveston area.
Our meeting is open to anyone with an interest in Texas. We encourage
you to attend and to bring your friends. Join us in Galveston, March
5-7, for what promises to be an exciting meeting. We look forward to
having you with us.
On August 31, Dr. James W. Pohl stepped down from his position as
interim director of the Association. Jim's calm, capable presence will be
missed. During 1985-1986, while the Association searched for a new
director, Jim took a leave of absence from Southwest Texas State Uni-
versity and provided the steady leadership that the Association needed
in a time of change. The Association has many good friends, but Jim
Pohl is among the best. His dedication to the Quarterly, the Handbook,
our educational programs, and all else that we do is unsurpassed.
A longtime member of the Association, Jim stepped out of the ranks to
lead the Association as we made a transition from one director to an-
other. Jim has the thanks and appreciation of the Association and the
staff. We wish him well.
