Publications

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

The Pine Bough - Vol 9, December 2004

Welcome to what I hope you'll find to be another exciting issue of the Pine Bough Magazine. This year we feature articles from our oral history collection memories of the old Southern Pine Lumber Company commissary, which sadly has been demolished. Patsy Colbert, our longtime assistant archivist, reflects on personal experience as well as various other resources to honor the life and contributions of Robert Ramsey, beloved Diboll citizen and educator. We also feature photos and interesting trivia from 51 years of lively Diboll Day Queen competitions, compiled by Archival Assistant Louis Landers and Patsy. And of course we include our popular "Scrapbook Pages" section with an eclectic selection of images and informative commentary.
