Heritage Auctions Historical Manuscripts Auction Catalog #6067
The Texas State Historical Association is proud once again to partner with Heritage Auctions for the Texana Auction. A portion of all proceeds from the Auction will go to support the programs of TSHA. All proceeds from lots donated or consigned directly to TSHA (including the Buyer’s Premium) will go to support the Association, and we express gratitude to all those donors and to Heritage for providing this opportunity.
Texana collectors have long been a part of the mix of people, both academic and nonacademic, who, since 1897, have made the Texas State Historical Association successful in its efforts to “foster the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of the rich and unique history of Texas.” We look forward to working with them in the coming years to make this the best and most successful of all of Heritage’s endeavors.
For more than a century, the Texas State Historical Association has played a leadership role in Texas history research and education, helping to identify, collect, preserve, and tell the stories of Texas. Located on the campus of the University of North Texas since 2008, the Association works with partners to provide passion, talent, and long-term support for the dissemination of scholarly research; educational programs for the K-12 community; and opportunities for public discourse about the complex issues and personalities of our heritage.
In the midst of rapid change, the Texas State Historical Association will continue to provide a future for our heritage and to ensure that the lessons of our history serve as a resource for the people of Texas. Your participation in this auction will provide much needed support for our ongoing efforts.
With the help of this partnership, the Texas State Historical Association will be able to continue to accumulate knowledge and provide resources and programs for the people of Texas for many years to come.
