Junior Historians of Texas Diamond Jubilee
The map above illustrates the over 900 chapters chartered by the TSHA since 1939. Inactive chapters are shown in RED, while active elementary schools are in YELLOW, middle schools in BLUE, and high schools in GREEN. In honor of the Junior Historians program’s quickly approaching 75th anniversary in March 2014, the Texas State Historical Association is seeking to locate all former Junior Historian participants and their sponsors. As there are now over 900 chapters (past and present) across the state, we cannot do this without your help. We are soliciting information on former participants from schools that have participated in the program. We encourage you to fill out the accompanying form and forward it to the address above at the attention of Kate Hopfer. You can also enter information online at http://www.tshaonline.org/forms/diamond-jubilee.
We are seeking any information that would be helpful in locating these former members, such as:
• Names (Please make note if the last name is maiden or not.)
• School or Chapter affiliations
• Former or Current Contact Information (Addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.)
• Any additional information that would assist our staff in the locating process (Grade levels during participation, graduation year, etc.)
We are also seeking scans of yearbook pages focusing on Junior Historian chapters throughout the years. We appreciate any information that can be provided to us, as well as any feedback or suggestions that you may in regards to the Diamond Jubilee events to be held in Austin, TX in March 2014. Thank you for your help and we look forward to seeing you at the Diamond Jubilee festivities. If you have any questions about the festivities or have stories or pictures of Junior Historian activities that you would be willing to share, feel free to contact Kate Hopfer. You can also use our online form to submit information.
