Texas Historian

The official journal of the Junior Historians of Texas

The Texas Historian is one of the few historical journals in the nation dedicated to publishing the work of secondary students. First issued in 1941 under the title Junior Historian, it was described by Walter Prescott Webb as "an experiment" founded on the belief that "Texas boys and girls are competent to collect the history, tradition, and lore of their separate communities and to write out the results of their investigations in a way worthy of publication. The search feature above and browse features below allow access to all but the current issue. Current and back issues may be purchased, when available, with all proceeds supporting the Junior Historians of Texas program.
