In July of 1901 the Kiowa-Comanche and Apache lands of south-
western Oklahoma Territory were opened to white settlement. This
land opening was conducted by lottery, and thousands of prospective
homesteaders descended on El Reno and Fort Sill to register to win
land. Now Julie Peterson Hinton and Louise F. Wilcox have compiled
El Reno Land District 19go Land Lottery: Index to Names of Homesteaders'
Filings. Many Texans participated in the lottery, and genealogists and
others interested in family history will find this list of land winners in-
valuable. Write Julie P. Hinton at 62oo Gun Hill Way, Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma 73132, for more information.
Two new bibliographies have recently reached our offices. One is
United States Coast Defense, 1775-195o: A Bibliography. This work has
several sections on coastal defense, but of particular interest to readers
of this journal would be the section on specific defense localities. Here,
references to various Texas coastal defenses are gathered. This work
was published by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and may be or-
dered from the Government Printing Office (N. Capitol and H Streets
N.W., Washington, D.C. 20401) for $5.50.
The other bibliography recently received was published by the Policy
Research Institute at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at
the University of Texas at Austin. A Bibliography of Texas Government and
Politics was compiled by Arnold Fleischmann, Elliott Manley Banks,
Richard H. Kraemer, and Allen Kupetz. Of special use will be the part
titled "A Research Guide to Texas Politics" that is designed to help re-
searchers design and carry through a project. Copies are $12.00oo and
should be ordered from the Office of Publications at the LBJ School.
Here’s what’s next.
