Southwestern Historical Quarterly
With the centennial annual meeting behind us, we now look forward
to 1998's annual meeting, which will be held in Austin, March 5-7, at
the Renaissance Hotel where we have met for the last several years.
Every year we seem to add more sessions and 1998 is no exception-we
will have nearly forty sessions during our next meeting. This year's fine
program committee, under the chairmanship of Vista McCroskey, has
put together the largest number of sessions ever at an annual meeting.
There will be over ioo presentations on an incredibly diverse range of
subjects: Texas art, sculpture, and public architecture; African American
jazz and blues in Texas; water and politics in West Texas; myths and im-
ages of ranch women and cowgirls; LBJ's Great Society; pioneer women
physicians in Texas; steamboats and steamships in the nineteenth centu-
ry; Tejano views of the Texas Rangers; Estabanico: From Slave to New
World Explorer; and many others. We will also be having joint sessions
with a number of our fellow historical groups including the Texas Folk-
lore Society (Life and Literature along the Texas-New Mexico Line);
the Texas Catholic Historical Society (Race and Gender in the Texas
Catholic Church); and several others. In upcoming issues of the Quarter-
ly we will be telling you about other papers and sessions at this bigger-
than-ever annual meeting. Those of you who have come over the years
can expect that we will continue to feature the usual activities: banquets
with special speakers; live and silent auctions of hundreds of rare Texas
books, art, maps, and artifacts; and other special events. We will, as al-
ways, have a full book room with displays by the leading publishers of
Texana, many of whom will have book signings by recent authors. Other
highlights are the social events and receptions where old friends and
lovers of Texas history can get together. Keep looking here and in the
Riding Line newsletter for more details on the meeting as it develops.

If you came to our centennial annual meeting in March you probably
saw the bronze TSHA lantern bookends that we had designed and cast
to celebrate the TSHA's 1 ooth birthday. These handsome mementos of
our centennial are being sold to raise funds for our centennial endow-
ment drive. These eight-inch bookends, cast in bronze and mounted on
a walnut base with a skid-proof bottom, will hold up just about any stack
of books, and are perfect to surround your set of the New Handbook of
Texas. If you are unfamiliar with TSHA history, you may not know that
