  • Refuting History Fables: Collective Memories, Mexican Texans, and Texas
           History
    • Abstract: José T. Canales, c. 1909–10. Courtesy of State Preservation Board, Austin, Texas.In summer 1935, Carlos E. Castañeda and José T. Canales exchanged letters discussing their goals of correcting the omission of Tejanos from public school history textbooks. Castañeda worked as an archivist, but would become a distinguished professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin, while Canales was a civil rights activist and former state legislator. A lawyer by training, Canales was also an avid lay historian who wrote scholarly essays and engaged in spirited debates with academics. Both believed in preserving Tejano archives, so Canales asked Castañeda to deposit various items in the Genaro García Collection at the ... Read More

Courtesy of the University of Texas at Arlington Libraries Special Collections, Gift of Virginia Garrett.In late October 1833, Dr. John Charles Beales of Norfolk, England, hustled around New York City recruiting colonists to join him on his mission to settle his contracted land grant in northern Mexico, an area of land of about eight million acres in the Nueces Strip, between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande. Beales carried with him a contract he signed with the state of Coahuila y Texas that described the land the colonists would settle and stated that the Mexican government would ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Paramount Theatre in Marshall, Texas, as it appeared in 2014. Photograph by Carol M. Highsmith. The Lyda Hill Texas Collection of Photographs in Carol M. Highsmith’s America Project, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.When the academy award-winning film Pinky (1949) was scheduled to be shown at the Paramount Theatre in Marshall, Texas, in early 1950, city officials censored the movie because white leaders did not want to expose residents of the city to a story that involved an African American woman passing for white and becoming engaged to a white man. This decision led to a firestorm as W. L. Gelling, the manager of the local theater, ignored the censorship order and showed the movie in ... Read More

  • Guadalupe Mountains National Park: An Environmental History of the
           Southwest Borderlands by Jeffrey P. Shepherd (review)
    • Abstract: Jeffrey Shepherd’s instructive environmental history is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the Guadalupe Mountains, its fragile, arid ecosystem, and how humans have interacted with and impacted their environment over the millennia. Guadalupe Mountains National Park, located in Texas, is smaller than 90,000 acres. Confronted with such a limited geographical area, Shepherd frames his narrative within the larger context of the Southwest Borderlands. His focus is a zone bounded by Roswell, New Mexico, 135 miles to the north, the Pecos River, sixty-five miles to the east, and El Paso, Texas, 115 miles to the west and south.After introducing the geology, flora, and fauna of the ...

  • ‘Horses Worn to Mere Shadows’: The Victorio Campaign 1880 by
           Robert N. Watt (review)
    • Abstract: ‘Horses Worn to Mere Shadows’ is the second of three volumes Robert N. Watt has devoted to the Victorio Campaign of 1879–1881 and published with Helion. The first volume, ‘I will not Surrender the Hair of A Horse’s Tail’: The Victorio Campaign 1879 was published in 2017, and the third, ‘With My Face to My Bitter Foes’: Nana’s War 1880–1881, also appeared in 2019.To understand Victorio, perhaps the greatest of all Apache chiefs, if not of all Native American leaders, one must understand the geography of the desert Southwest. Having spent several summers in the area, carefully following in Victorio’s footsteps across deserts and mountains over thousands of miles, Watt includes seventy-one photographs of the area ...

  • Prairie Imperialists: The Indian Country Origins of American Empire by
           Katharine Bjork (review)
    • Abstract: Little has been written about the possible continuities between the “Indian Wars” of the nineteenth-century American West and the conflict between United States and Spain in 1898.In Prairie Imperialists, Katharine Bjork examines parallels among the Philippines, Cuba, the struggle for the Great Plains, and the ambitions of Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. The “Indian Wars” influenced ambitions abroad; the military brought with it notions of conquest when going west of the West. Troops struggled to defeat foes skilled in unconventional tactics, whether in the jungles of the Philippines or the mountains of the American Southwest. “Indian Country—doctrinal and discursive—has been at the center of American imperial ...

  • A Diné History of Navajoland by Klara Kelley, Harris Francis (review)
    • Abstract: Klara Kelley, an ethnohistorian, and Harris Francis, a Diné (Navajo) cultural resource consultant, provide some interesting detail from Diné oral history, but the authors mention on the first page of their introduction that they only tell “pieces” of this history (3). This partial approach results in a decidedly uneven book in three areas: Diné history, the book’s own purpose, and its lack of attention to science.The first is Diné history. While Kelley and Francis include interesting chapters on Diné trading post operators and coal mine workers, many other aspects of Diné history are missing: influential Diné leaders Peter McDonald and Peterson Zah do not appear in the index, for example. Also, in the authors’ ... Read More

  • Painting Culture, Painting Nature: Stephen Mopope, Oscar Jacobson, and the
           Development of Indian Art in Oklahoma by Gunlög Fur (review)
    • Abstract: Late in the 1920s, a group of Kiowa artists arrived at the University of Oklahoma (OU) to study under the patronage of Oscar Brousse Jacobson (1882–1966), a Swedish-born painter and head of the university’s art department. The eldest member of the influential group who would collectively become known as the Kiowa Six—and the only member of the group to make painting a lifelong pursuit—Stephen Mopope (1898–1974), forged a lasting friendship with Jacobson. Gunlög Fur’s compelling text traces Jacobson’s and Mopope’s “concurrent histories” as part of a “larger process . . . of how American Indians and immigrants in different circumstances and localities forged alliances and collaborative partnerships in order to ...

  • Adolphe Gouhenant: French Revolutionary, Utopian Leader, and Texas
           Frontier Photographer by Paula Selzer, Emmanuel Pécontal (review)
    • Abstract: Adolphe Gouhenant is a fascinating representative of nineteenth-century French immigration to Texas. He had already left his mark in France as a visionary architectural entrepreneur and an early socialist; he became part of Texas history as the leader of a utopian venture in North Texas and then as the creator of the first cultural establishment in Dallas, an “Arts Saloon” and daguerreotype studio. Paula Selzer and Emmanuel Pécontal treat both aspects of Gouhenant’s career fully and thoughtfully and also provide thorough documentation.Gouhenant emerges here as a dreamer with no sense of his own limits. His first grand project was the construction in 1831, atop the Colline de Fourvière in Lyon, of a tower intended ... Read More

  • The Chisholm Trail: Joseph McCoy’s Great Gamble by James E. Sherow
           (review)
    • Abstract: James E. Sherow’s new book about Joseph McCoy and his connection to the Chisholm Trail is packed with compelling information. Beginning with meat market conditions in New York City, the author takes his reader though the assortment of transformations that brought together man, beast, technology, and a voracious demand for beef after the American Civil War. By opening the narrative in New York City with a discussion of the vile conditions inherent in processing stock from hoof to table, the author all but compels his reader to welcome a different system located miles away from the daily lives of city dwellers. He then delivers.As with all land and business, location is paramount, and this history of the Chisholm ... Read More

  • Billy and Olive Dixon: The Plainsman and His Lady by Bill O’Neal
           (review)
    • Abstract: The names of Billy and Olive Dixon are household words in the Texas Panhandle, just as they should be. At the Battle of Adobe Walls in 1874 Dixon made a remarkable shot with his Sharps “Big Fifty” rifle, shooting a Comanche nearly three-quarters of a mile away. Dixon later claimed it was a “scratch shot” made with a borrowed Sharps, not with his regular weapon. Certainly an element of luck played into it, but two months later Dixon and other hunters were trapped in a buffalo wallow, surrounded by Comanche, again fighting for their lives. Dixon’s actions in this latter engagement earned him the Medal of Honor.The book is written from reliable sources. Dixon himself composed his autobiography; Olive Dixon wrote many ... Read More

  • Pioneer Mother Monuments: Constructing Cultural Memory by Cynthia Culver
           Prescott (review)
    • Abstract: Over the last two years, many Americans have begun to grapple with the cultural meaning of Confederate monuments in public spaces and yet few, if any, have given thought to the similarly ubiquitous pioneer monuments that dot the western landscape. Like the southern memorial, statuary to the westward migration of Anglo Americans inherently honors white civilization. In addition, because so many of these monuments depict women, particularly mothers, they have also fostered an idealized vision of female gender at the core of American national mythology.In Pioneer Mother Monuments, Cynthia Culver Prescott compares two hundred western monuments, established between the 1880s and today, and argues that Americans erected ...

  • They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South
           by Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers (review)
    • Abstract: Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers contends that southern, white, slave-owning women were as deeply invested in the institution of slavery as anyone in the U.S. South. The women she writes about were not subordinate onlookers, femes covert, or deputy husbands, but rather “mistresses of the market” (xiv) who owned, governed, and traded enslaved people in their own right and reaped the profits of captive labor. In advancing an argument that southern white women were complicit in slaveholding and, by extension, the development of American capitalism, Jones-Rogers’s work contributes in equal measure to the scholarship on both nineteenth-century women and slavery.In her introduction, Jones-Rogers carefully spells out the target ...

  • Too Great a Burden to Bear: The Struggle and Failure of the Freedmen’s
           Bureau in Texas by Christopher B. Bean (review)
    • Abstract: Historians have long recognized the importance of the local agents of the Freedmen’s Bureau, the subassistant commissioners, in the transition of black people from slavery to freedom. Usually with little guidance from either Washington or local bureau headquarters, these agents determined on their own how labor contracts should be written and enforced, how grievances were handled, and how force was employed. The stories of some of these men, usually those with the most interesting experiences, have been the subject of studies by some of the best-known scholars of Texas Reconstruction. Barry Crouch, William Richter, and James Smallwood have written about local agents. As noted by Christopher Bean, however, the focus ... Read More

  • Football at Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Texas by
           Robert C. Fink (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1950s, football has dominated American sports pages year round. In addition to reports of trades, drafts, game summaries, etc., current articles address themes as diverse as social protest (e.g., kneeling during the National Anthem), the lifelong effects of injuries, and dwindling youth participation. These issues reflect the game’s broad influence on American culture. Football is also a major part of black culture; most National Football League players are African American, a strong indication of minority interest and participation in football from youth leagues to university elevens. Football at Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Texas examines the historical impact of America’s game on ... Read More

Jacobus weaves together lengthy excerpts from well more than two hundred personal interviews, arranged in chronological progression and stitched together via his own commentary, to recreate the historic racial transformation of Texas gridirons from the early 1950s through the late 1960s. He not only interviewed the pioneering black athletes themselves but also white teammates, former coaches, and old classmates in order to provide as comprehensive a story as possible. The process and timing of school desegregation varied widely across ... Read More

Joseph seamlessly interweaves six Mexican and Mexican American men and five women into the larger historical narrative, making the collection of biographies an effective companion reader for undergraduate and high school Texas history, Mexican American Studies, and U.S history courses. Non-specialists and the general public interested in Texas history will also appreciate the concise prose that analyzes the individual lives of key ... Read More

  • Inventing the Immigration Problem: The Dillingham Commission and its
           Legacy by Katherine Benton-Cohen (review)
    • Abstract: Katherine Benton-Cohen seeks to understand the meaning and legacy of the Dillingham Commission, the three-year congressional study of immigration that began in 1907 and issued its report and recommendations in 1911. She faced a significant challenge in writing this book. The main source is a massive, multivolume government report with thousands of pages of statistics and graphs, but there is little documentation of how the report was created because the papers of the Dillingham Commission were not preserved. Benton-Cohen finds a solution to this dilemma by concentrating on an array of men and women—social scientists, reformers, religious leaders, politicians, and others—who sought to shape the report’s findings and ...

    • Abstract: In this aptly titled biography, Brian A. Cervantez traces the life of a man whose influence was felt not only in Fort Worth and West Texas but the entire Lone Star state. Carter lived a large life, and his antics became the stuff of legend; his persona likely contributed to the popular-culture caricature of the Texas oil tycoon. While previous biographies of Carter sought to distinguish myth from reality, Cervantez’s objective is not only to reveal the flesh and blood man, but also to place him within the historical and geographical context that helped shape him.Cervantez situates Carter within a group of progressive businessmen and civic boosters who appeared in the New South during the early twentieth century. ...

  • McCarthyism vs. Clinton Jencks by Raymond Caballero (review)
    • Abstract: In one of the more felicitous passages of McCarthyism vs. Clinton Jencks, Raymond Caballero likens Jencks’s experiences to a “nesting doll” (70). It’s an apt metaphor, although no such toy could contain all the separate pieces that the story requires: Jencks’s confrontation with McCarthyism touches on almost every element of anti-communist political repression of the late 1940s and 1950s.According to Caballero, and many other scholars and activists, Jencks was a charismatic figure. Even before joining the Communist party at the University of Colorado in the 1930s, Jencks displayed a missionary zeal for social justice. A few years after his highly decorated wartime service in the Pacific, he became an organizer for ... Read More

  • Undocumented Lives: The Untold Story of Mexican Migration by Ana Raquel
           Minian (review)
    • Abstract: One evening in May 1980, a group of Mexican migrants pursued by the U.S. Border Patrol fled south toward the border. Once they crossed into Mexico, they were met by Tijuana police, who pushed the migrants back towards the United States, leading to the apprehension of more than 250 people. Ana Raquel Minian begins her book, Undocumented Lives: The Untold Story of Mexican Migration, with the tale of these migrants as a way to introduce readers to her subjects: Mexican migrants “from neither here nor there” caught between two nations (1). Minian argues that the United States and Mexico effectively created a permanent class of displaced and unwanted people who did not belong to either nation (3). Consequently, her book ... Read More

  • Mexican Waves: Radio Broadcasting Along Mexico’s Northern Border,
           1930–1950 by Sonia Robles (review)
    • Abstract: The study of the radio industry in Mexico is only beginning to emerge, most notably with J. Justin Castro’s Radio in Revolution: Wireless Technology and State Power in Mexico, 1897–1938 (University of Nebraska Press, 2016). In her new book, Sonia Robles adds much to this nascent literature by analyzing “the history of radio stations along Mexico’s northern border to demonstrate that, historically and still today, cross-border ties between the two nations have been commercial and cultural, and, with the rise of commercial radio, facilitated by mass media” (12).Electromagnetic radiation is cosmopolitan: it inhabits the world without regard to boundaries conceived by modern states. For Robles, this physical reality is ... Read More

    • Abstract: David Dillon, with a Ph.D. in literature from Harvard, came to Dallas to teach at Southern Methodist University in 1969. In 1980, he wrote an essay for D Magazine, provocatively titled “Why is Dallas architecture so bad'” In 1981, he became the full-time architecture critic for the Dallas Morning News, a position he held until 2006. During that twenty-five-year stretch, he wrote more than one thousand articles for the newspaper, while also contributing to national and regional architecture magazines and other publications. In the mid-1990s, he moved back to Massachusetts, where he taught at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and continued his prolific writing output. He died in 2010.The quality and the volume ...
