On the Cover: Captain Mike Hogg. Courtesy of Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. One of Texas’s most storied families is covered in two articles for this issue of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly. Lonn Taylor’s “Ima Hogg and the Historic Preservation Movement in Texas, 1950–1975” examines an enduring legacy left by “Miss Ima,” who was a towering force in Texas’s historic preservation movement in the third quarter of the twentieth century. Virginia Bernhard, who has written a biography of Ima Hogg most recently published by the Texas State Historical Association, examines the experiences of her brother Mike in World War I. This month, we will publish the first of two parts of “A Texan in the Trenches: Mike Hogg’s World War I Letters,” following Mike Hogg from the time he entered officer’s training in Texas to his first experiences of battle in France. This fall, the TSHA will publish another book by Virginia Bernhard on the Hogg family, The Hoggs of Texas: Letters and Memoirs of an Extraordinary Family, 1887–1906.
