FROM THE EDITOR
C hange is inevitable, wrote
Patricia Haas, in one of her recent
editorials. At the time she wrote that,
she probably had little idea how prophetic
her words were. She wrote then
of the changes taking place at the '
Texas Historical Foundation and of
the organization's new executive director
Jackie Browning Stocker.
Patricia, though perhaps unaware, was
also in for a big change. After editing
HERITAGE for almost two years, Pat
left that position in August, when she
and her husband moved to England to
pursue new career opportunities. I am
stepping in as the new editor, and I am thrilled at having the
chance to play a role in bringing the experience of historic
preservation in this state to you on a regular basis. Though I have
been at this new position for a little more than a month, I have
already spoken with and met many individuals who are actively
involved in the study and documentation of this state's rich history,
and I know there is much to learn from the experts in the days to
With that in mind, I begin my tenure as editor by asking each
of you for your help. While Jackie Stocker and I both take seriously
our commitment to improving the scope of the Texas Historical
Foundation, we cannot do it without your help. We realize fully
that the members of this fine organization are the real experts in
the field of preservation. With your help, we think that we can
expand our coverage of preservation projects, making the magazine
and the Foundation a better source of information. With nearly
4,000 THF members working as scouts, we believe that we can
cover a greater range of projects representing
all areas of the state. If you know of interestjHr
ing projects, people, preservation efforts or
publications, please let me know immediately.
Write a brief note to: Editor, P.O. Box
436, Marathon, Texas 79842 or call me at
(915) 386-4366, and I will be happy to follow
up on your lead. Also, if you are working on
a project and would like to contribute an
article to HERITAGE magazine, I would be
interested in talking with you. Either way,
your help will be invaluable.
In that same vein, I wish to extend a
special thanks to James Bruseth, Nancy
Kenmotsu, John Peterson, Tom Walters,
James Evans, Martha Doty Freeman and Carl McQueary, contributors
to this issue of HERITAGE. They were all extremely
helpful and cooperative.
I thank you for the opportunity to become involved in this most
exciting field of historic preservation, and I look forward to
meeting each of you in the future. Jackie and I will be counting on
you to tell us how we are doing in our efforts to bring the exciting
experience of historic preservation to you. Please let us hear from
