Handbook of Texas Music: Acknowledgments (summarized)

You are currently viewing a summarized version of the acknowledgments. View the complete version.

Many individuals and institutions devoted much effort to assist in the publication of the first and second print editions of The Handbook of Texas Music, as detailed in the “Acknowledgments” of The Handbook of Texas Music, Second Edition. This online edition and its ongoing work owe a debt of gratitude to all of them. Additionally, I would like to thank all of the current staff of the Texas State Historical Association, including CEO Brian Bolinger, Chief Historian Randolph B. “Mike” Campbell, and COO Steve Cure. Thanks to my Handbook of Texas colleagues, Managing Editor Brett Derbes and Assistant Editor Matt Abigail; TSHA Digital Projects team David Degnan, Phillip Farr, and John Jenkins; as well as Terri Killen and Brianna McCabe Alldredge; and the support of Southwestern Historical Quarterly editor Ryan Schumacher and Texas Almanac editors Elizabeth Alvarez and Robert Plocheck. My appreciation also goes to former Handbook/Digital Projects staffer Gerardo Garcia for his work.

I am deeply grateful to our longtime partners for this project—the Texas Music Office (Office of the Governor) and the Center for Texas Music History (Texas State University)—as well as our outstanding team of music advisors.
