2013 Pine Bough Now Available

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

The December 2013 issue of the Pine Bough magazine has been mailed to our subscribers and is available for members of The History Center.  The 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. 

The Pine Bough is published annually, and a subscription is included in History Center membership dues of at least $15.  Print versions of back issues are available at The History Center for $5 each, or you may access them in the Pine Bough section of our website as PDF files.
