As historians we look to the past, but as members of the TSHA we
always have our eyes on next year's calendar. The 1999 TSHA annual
meeting in Dallas will be the first held outside Austin for three years. We
look forward to getting together at the Fairmont on March 4-6 for three
days of presentations, auctions, banquets, book signings, and other activ-
ities. Bonnie Campbell, chair of the program committee for 1999, is
working with her committee to put together another great lineup of pre-
sentations. With your memories of this year's meeting still fresh in your
mind, be sure to tell a friend-especially any non-members in the Dallas-
Fort Worth area-that we'll be in Dallas next year and that if they truly
love Texas history they can't afford to miss the meeting. Mark March
4-6, 1999, on your calendars. We'll see you there.
