University of Texas Welcomes TSHA Back to AustinMay 8th, 2015
On this day in 2015, the Texas State Historical Association announced the move back to The University of Texas at Austin campus, where it was founded and operated for 108 years, to support the teaching and preservation of Texas History. The TSHA, the oldest learned society in the state, has been dedicated to the preservation, protection, and promotion of Texas History for 118 years. Through this partnership, the TSHA will establish an endowed chair for a faculty member in UT Austin's History Department. That faculty member will serve as the TSHA's chief historian, responsible for working to ensure the highest academic standards for its programming and publications, which include the iconic Texas Almanac, the Handbook of Texas, and the Southwestern Historical Quarterly. The Handbook of Texas, with more than 26,000 entries, is publicly accessible online and is constantly expanded and updated. The TSHA returns to UT Austin following a successful 7-year affiliation with the University of North Texas.« Previous Next »
