The Texas History Day Program

“Nothing has played a bigger part in my growth as a student. I am more professional and confident thanks to Texas History Day.”
Gloria C., Texas History Day student

The 2020 Texas History Day statewide competition just concluded, and preparations are being made for next year’s program. Due to school closures and stay-home orders, TSHA held a virtual statewide competition, and about 1,000 students safely submitted their historical research projects to be scored by 190 volunteer remote judges. With your support, we will work to guide finalists throughout their preparations for the 2020 national contest and expand the program in 2021.

The Southwestern Historical Quarterly

The Quarterly is the premier scholarly journal on Texas and the Southwest. TSHA began publishing the journal more than 120 years ago, and it is responsible for the scholarly foundation of the Association. While staff worked remotely, TSHA recently published and distributed the April issue. Your support during "Giving Tuesday Now" will allow for us to continue publishing the newest research on the history of Texas in the July issue and beyond.

The Handbook of Texas

“It is a pleasure to help people discover an ancestor’s special place in Texas history or read about the history of a town where their grandparents were born.”
Laurie J., Handbook Research Editor

The Handbook is the most comprehensive encyclopedic resource on the notable people, places, and events from Texas history, and each of the more than 27,000 entries is carefully researched, written, and vetted for historical accuracy. Throughout the pandemic, TSHA has continued to publish new and revised entries on a variety of topics, in addition to its free eBook on the medical history of Texas, From Malaise to Miracles: Health and Healing in the Lone Star State. With your help, the Handbook team will continue to chronicle the people and events from our shared past, thereby offering important perspective on the state’s current affairs and future.
