Mark your calendars and reserve March 5-7, 1998, for the
Association's 1 o2nd annual meeting, which will be held in Austin at the
Renaissance Hotel. This year you will have the chance to pick from more
sessions than we have ever had-over forty sessions altogether with two
or three papers in each session, plus all the usual festivities, historical
presentations, book displays and signings, and good fellowship.
Programs will range from Texas troops in the 1864 Red River cam-
paign to photography in Texas, from the myths surrounding ranch
women and cowgirls to steamboats and steamships in the Lone Star
State. There also will be sessions on oil in Texas, Texas art, water and
politics in West Texas, LBJ's Great Society, Kickapoo Indians, Texas
and Mexican warriors, collecting and editing primary sources for pub-
lication, and Camp Cooper. A very special session on Neiman Marcus
and its international impact will include a presentation by Mr. Stanley
Marcus, chairman emeritus of that illustrious store. Other sessions will
focus on pioneer women physicians in Texas, murder in Texas,
Estebanico and Cabeza de Vaca, black music in Texas, small town
Texas, and Tejano views of the Texas Rangers. Needless to say, there
will be enough sessions on different topics to pique the interest of any-
one who has a fascination with Texas life, culture, and history.
If you never have been to a TSHA annual meeting, you may find it
somewhat different from a run-of-the-mill scholarly get-together. Our
meetings bring together professional academics, teachers, students,
doctors, lawyers, and ranchers. Presentations in a given session may be
researched and read by a professor from Texas Tech or a businessman
from Beaumont. The eclectic, broad-based nature of the TSHA mem-
bership carries over to all aspects of the meeting, and its friendly
nature is evident in the numerous receptions and social events, rare-
book and artifact auctions (live and silent), and banquets with special
speakers. One of this year's highlights will be the banquet address of
James Farmer, formerly of Marshall, one of the leaders of the civil
rights movement, who will speak on LBJ's role in that movement as
seen from the inside. Our lo1nd annual meeting promises to be a
great one, and we look forward to seeing you March 5-7.
The Texas Archeology Society's Sixty-Eighth Annual Meeting is slated
for October 31 through November 7, 1997, at the Holiday Inn Center
in Odessa. Following the annual business meeting, a public forum enti-
