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

The Pine Bough - Vol 4, December 1999

In this issue you will find biographical sketches of Fannie Farrington, Walter Allen, and Dred Devereaux-three individuals whose legacies continue to impact the present. You will also find stories on logging camps, Diboll restaurants, a student newspaper from the 1920s, transportation and postal history, and much more. Special photo sections feature many familiar (and some maybe not so familiar) faces from the past as well as a few past products from Temple Industries’ many subsidiaries
