The 1992 annual meeting is fast approaching, and we're looking for-
ward to having our usual large Austin turnout. We will be meeting Feb-
ruary 27-29 this year at the Hyatt Regency on the shores of Austin's
Town Lake. Austin's central location in the state symbolizes the Associa-
tion's centrality to the study of Texas history. From our offices here we
look out to all corners of the state and to all areas of historical inquiry.
Our annual meeting programs always try to reflect that diverse view of
Texas and its history. Chairman Walter Buenger's program committee
for the 1992 meeting has assured that no matter what your interests,
there will be thought-provoking papers presented in that area. A mere
list of session topics indicates the diversity we will have: national parks
in Texas, women in towns and on farms in the mid-twentieth century,
prison culture and folklore, Texas soldiers in the Confederate army,
and women in the Civil War era. We will also have speakers on Texas
populists, Native American views of Texas and Texans, photography
and the Mexican Revolution, acculturation in the borderlands, Spanish
views of the sixteenth-century borderlands, and a host of others. As al-
ways, we are holding a number of joint sessions with organizations such
as the Texas Association of Museums, the Texas Oral History Associa-
tion, and the Foundation for Women's Resources. Some of the subjects
the joint sessions will address include: Texas museums and the oil in-
dustry, West Texas cowboy tales, teaching about Columbus in 1992,
Jewish institutions in Dallas, and a host of others. Although the schol-
arly sessions are the heart of every annual meeting, our members look
forward just as much to the array of other activities: the annual auction
of Texas books, maps, and artifacts; stimulating speakers at lunch and
dinner banquets; receptions and informal social gatherings; and the
sheer pleasure of spending a weekend with old friends and new ac-
quaintances who share a love and knowledge of Texas and its rich his-
tory. Join us in Austin February 27-29 and spend an enjoyable three
days looking at Texas history.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the 1993 TSHA meet-
ing in Houston, now is the time for you to get together with some
friends and colleagues and put something together. Gregg Cantrell, a
historian at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, is chairman of
the program committee for the 1993 meeting, and he is looking for
good sessions that focus on any facet or period of Texas history. Please
keep in mind that no matter what topic you suggest-Native Ameri-
cans of the High Plains or astronauts of Houston-it is important that
