Soon 1992 will be here, and with it will come another TSHA annual
meeting. The 1992 meeting will be held February 27-29 at the Hyatt
Regency in Austin. Last May the program committee put the finishing
touches on the program, and it looks to be an exciting and interesting
one. Topics range from Native American views of Texas and Texans to
inmate culture in the Texas prison system. There will be presentations
on Texas soldiers in the Confederate army, the development of ranch-
ing in Spanish Texas, religion and reform in nineteenth-century Texas,
and a host of others. Once again, the committee has put together a fine
program for a wide array of historical interests. As in the past, we are
also holding joint sessions with a number of organizations, including
the Texas Folklore Society, the Texas Historical Commission, the Texas
Catholic Historical Society, and the Society of Southwest Archivists. We
will have more details on the 1992 meeting in the January Quarterly, so
keep your eye out for that issue. In the meantime, you can look for-
ward to the many activities at a TSHA meeting: the auction of Texas
books, maps, and artifacts; banquets and special speakers; social activi-
ties and receptions; and the good fellowship of hundreds of other
people with a love and knowledge of Texas history. Mark February
27-29 on your calendar-we're meeting a bit earlier than usual in
1992-and bring along someone who hasn't yet been to a TSHA an-
Historian Gregg Cantrell of Sam Houston State University, chairman
of the program committee for the 1993 TSHA annual meeting in
Houston, has announced a call for papers. Gregg and his committee
are looking for interesting papers that discuss and analyze any subject
related to the history of Texas and Texans. The annual meeting ses-
sions traditionally cover a wide range of topics from the days before
European contact right on up to the present. Sometimes sessions even
peer into the future. In any case, no matter what topic you would like
to propose, it is important that you organize complete sessions with col-
leagues and friends. Single papers are very difficult to work into ses-
sions. As a result, single papers often cannot be scheduled, even
though the committee thinks they have merit. A complete session in-
cludes a chairman and three paper presenters (or two presenters and a
commentator). You must provide the following information or the
committee will not be able to consider your proposal: (1) a session title;
(2) the names, addresses, phone numbers, and institutional affiliations
(or hometowns) of the chairman, presenters, and commentator; and
Here’s what’s next.
