The history of Texas is constantly the subject of new research, and the resulting conclusions are constantly revised, rethought, and, in some cases, changed. That is the nature of our business, and there is no better place to be informed and discuss the latest in research and revisions than the annual meeting of the Texas State Historical Association.

Our 108th annual meeting will be a salute to Texas History Month, which the legislature established and Governor Rick Perry signed into law this past summer, and we invite you and your friends to be a part of this great celebration at the Renaissance Austin Hotel on March 4-6. Guest speakers--Mary Margaret McAllen Amberson, H. W. Brands, Jr., B. Byron Price, and TSHA President George N. Green--will entertain and enlighten us along with the participants in forty-seven sessions on topics on every aspect of Texas, organized by Program Chair Kenneth Hafertepe and his able committee. On Saturday, John and Donna Britt will conduct a tour of the beautiful Hill Country town of Fredericksburg and the LBJ Ranch.

The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, which has opened since we last met in Austin, will co-host the reception for incoming TSHA President John Crain at the museum on Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. We are featuring its extraordinary current exhibition, Texas Flags, in this program, and the exhibition will be open during the reception. In addition, the museum staff has arranged for all registered attendees at the annual meeting to receive a discount on admission charges during the weekend of the meeting.

Interspersed with all these activities will be the silent auction, organized by bookseller Michael Heaston and his committee, presenting a superb collection of books, maps, manuscripts, and historical materials for your collection. As usual, the state's premier publishers will be on hand to show you their new publications in the book exhibit room, and we will have our usual "no tax" publications sale on Friday and Saturday.

It has been three years since we have met in Austin, so join us on March 4-6 for our 108th annual meeting. If you bring a friend who joins the Association as a new member, they will receive a free registration to the meeting.

See you there.
