Affairs of the Association
On January 1 the initial number of The Junior Historian will
be issued. An attractive format has been designed with a cover
by Professor Walter Thomas Rolfe of the Architecture Depart-
ment at The University of Texas. The purpose of this magazine
is to offer an outlet for the historical writings of young Texans.
A survey of the field reveals that there now exists no state-
wide publication made up of the writings of young people.
Therefore The Junior Historian is an experiment based on the
assumption that young people can write and help in perpetuating
the history and traditions of Texas. The subscription price for
such issues as are published this year is $1.
Members of the Association are invited to lend their support
to this enterprise. They can do this by giving subscriptions to
their children or young friends, by calling attention of school
authorities to the magazine, and by encouraging talented students
to submit articles for publication. For a time The Junior His-
torian will have to be supported by the Association, but within
two years it should be on a sound financial basis. The editor is
Mr. H. B. Carroll, who has recently been added to the staff of
the Association. All communications relative to the new pub-
lication should be addressed to H. B. Carroll, University Station,
