This year two books shared the award. I was associated with both volumes that were co-awardees today. I was the sole author for one of them, Allie Tennant's biography, and for the other co-authored a chapter with Victoria Cummins in an anthology entitled, "Texas Women."
My wife Victoria Cummins and I are also contributors to the book of essays that was the co-winter of the Liz Carpenter Award today. That volume is "Texas Women: Their Histories, Their Lives," edited by Elizabeth Hayes Turner, Stephanie Cole, and Rebecca Sharpless, published by the University of Georgia Press. Victoria Cummins and I wrote the chapter in this book dealing with Frances B. Fisk and the promotion of the visual arts in pre-World War Two Texas.
