About the Author

Richard B. McCaslin, fellow of the TSHA, is a professor and chair of the history department at the University of North Texas and the author or editor of eleven books. His 1994 book Tainted Breeze: The Great Hanging at Gainesville, Texas, 1862 (LSU) was awarded the Association's Tullis Memorial Prize for the best book on Texas history.



J. P. BRYAN JR., whose roots in the Association run deep, was president for the year 1982–1983; his father, J. P. Bryan Sr., was president from 1965 to 1967; and another family member, Guy M. Bryan, was a vice president from 1897, when the Association began, until his death in 1901. Bryan's roots also run deep in the history of the state, going back to Emily Austin Bryan Perry, sister of Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas."
