Publications

The History Center publishes The Pine Bough, a popular annual East Texas history magazine featuring our growing archival collections.

The Pine Bough - Vol 18, December 2013

This 45-page issue includes articles on the long-gone sawmill town of Angelina, Texas, and Angelina Eberly, the heroine of the Texas Archives War.  Another article describes the history of Los Adaes, the first capital of Texas, which is now located in Louisiana.

This issue's feature article covers the newly acquired Lufkin Industries Collection, 286 cubic feet of records, images, ledgers, and publications that tell the story of Lufkin's founding, its products, and the people who worked there.  Included in the article is a brief history of the company, a description of the collection, and a small selection of the vast photographic archives included in the donation.
