whether our family
roots stretch back for
more than 150 years
or for a short period. As members of the
Texas Historical Foundation we can help
spark the interest of our families and friends
in the colorful past of the Lone Star State.
How can we spur this interest in our
history? We can do so by reading about it, by
sharing with one another stories and tales of
our ancestors, and by visiting and supporting
the vast array of historical sites around
I am deeply honored to have been chosen
to serve as president of the Texas Historical
Foundation. I will do my best to
warrant your trust. I respectfully ask each of
you to assist your board in carrying our
organization to new heights by taking an
active role in instilling in our fellow Texans
an appreciation and respect for the past.
I solicit your help in several ways. Each
of us has some piece of the historical puzzle
to share. It may be stories about a family
member, friend, or a special place that is
worthy of recognition. Please write to me in
care of the Foundation and allow others to
benefit from your remembrance. We would
like to print what we can in our HERITAGE
magazine. Become involved by sharing
our history with others. Encourage your
friends to join the Foundation. Through
expansion of our membership, we can
broaden support for the preservation of
Texas' heritage. If you have ideas for his

role in preserving Texas heritage and

Before signing off, I would like to take
a moment to briefly update you on recent
THF events. The Foundation's Board of
Directors meets quarterly, and in April
we gathered in Houston. Friday night,
Board members David and Christine
Bebout shared their splendidly restored
home and gracious hospitality with the
Board, and we are all most appreciative
of their generosity. Following the business
meeting on Saturday morning, we
visited the San Jacinto Battlefield
Monument and were there to see the
reenactment of the battle. Thanks to
J.C. Martin, director of the San Jacinto
Museum of History Association, and his
staff, for a most delightful reception.
Also, too, let me publicly thank outgoing
Texas Historical Foundation
president Elizabeth Susser of Corpus
Christi for the excellent job she did in
leading the affairs of this organization
and for her efforts in preserving Texas
In closing, let me thank you for your
support of the Foundation and for your
commitment to help us do even more.
