FROM THE EDITOR
With the turn of a page, we begin a
new year. Let me begin by saying that I
hope 1992 is a good and prosperous
year for all of you.
With the new year, comes new beginnings,
resolutions, and changes.
HERITAGE magazine, too, has undergone
some small changes in this
new year. In an effort to update the
publication and create a more dramatic
visual impact, the covers have
been redesigned to include full-bleed
photographs. Also, inside the magazine,
you will note a letter from the
president of the Texas Historical Foundation
updating members on the current
programs, activities, and goals of the organization. These
graphic and editorial changes are small, but we hope that they will
go a long way toward making HERITAGE magazine the premier
publication of historic preservation, history, and archaeology in
In this first issue of 1992, which commemorates Women's
History Month in March, there are four articles focusing on the
large and significant role that women, from Ma Ferguson to
present-day Governor Ann Richards, have played in Texas history.
First, freelance writer Julie Caddel tells the story of the restoration
of the Moody Mansion in Galveston and the indelible mark that
Mary Moody Northen, the oldest daughter of W.L. Moody Jr., has
left on this state. Called "one of the premier preservationists in the
United States," Faith Poorman Bybee continues today to lead the
way in the state's preservation efforts, through not only her Henkel
Square project in Round Top, but through her guidance and input
on the Texas Historical Foundation Board of Directors. THF Board
member David Bebout relates Bybee's fascinating
story, which begins with the wise counsel
and guiding hand of her parents. Hallie
*ifl IP Crawford Stillwell is one of those women who
helped tame West Texas. Read about her exciting
life and of the museum named in her
honor on page 30. Finally, two museums in the
Crosbyton area of West Texas have benefitted
largely from the contributions of the many
women who were instrumental in not only the
birth of the museums but their on-going development.
Learn about these women in the
story of the Ralls Historical Museum and the
Crosby County Pioneer Memorial Museum.
These four articles represent on a small-scale
the enormous efforts and significant contributions
that women, through the years, have made in preserving
Texas' rich past.
Let me close by thanking all of the contributors to this issue of
HERITAGE -- Julie Caddel, Elizabeth Susser, Curtis Tunnell, the
Moody Mansion and Museum, David Bebout, Damian Hevia,
John Peterson, Ann McDonald, Martha Doty Freeman, Christine
Moor Sanders, James H. Evans, and Mario Sanchez. Their hard
work has made my job somewhat easier.
My best wishes to each of you as we embark on this new year.
