Like Texas itself, the Texas Historical
Foundation has had its ups and
downs since the oil bust of 1985. The
Foundation's fortunes took a positive turn
in 1987 when it joined with the Center for
Historic Resources in the College of Architecture
at Texas A&M University. By affiliating
with an academic entity dedicated
to similar goals, the Foundation determined
to devote less energy and dollars to
administration and begin again doing what
it has always done best-raising funds for
historic preservation in Texas.
On a cool morning in September, the
Texas Historical Foundation took another
step forward as staff and leadership gathered
at Texas A&M University to discuss
with Dr. Michael McCarthy, Dean of the
College of Architecture, how the University
and the Foundation can help and support
each other in their new relationship.
"Where do we want to go together?" was
the theme of the lively interchange among
the participants: Dean McCarthy; Bill
Bailey, President of the Texas Historical
Foundation and his wife Jacquelyn;
Gordon Echols, Executive Director of both
the Foundation and the Center for Historic
Resources; Elizabeth Vair, Managing Editor
of Heritage; and Carolyn Fasel, Assistant
Editor of Heritage.
The setting for the Foundation's new
relationship and home with Texas A&M
University, and the site of the meeting, is
the Langford Architecture Complex in the
northeastern area of the campus in College
Station, comprised of offices, studios and
workshops. The drawings, designs and
models displayed throughout the complex
give evidence of the creative and practical
education that is preparing students here
for careers in various aspects of the design,
development and construction industries.
