Southwestern Historical Quarterly

The Southwestern Historical Quarterly brings the latest and most authoritative research in Texas history to a wide audience of history lovers and scholars. Since the Quarterly can only publish approximately sixteen articles each year, it is our editorial policy to publish original research on Texas history topics that have the greatest historical significance and the broadest reader interest.

The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, continuously published since 1897, is the premier source of scholarly information about the history of Texas and the Southwest. The first 100 volumes of the Quarterly, more than 57,000 pages, are now available online with searchable Tables of Contents.Select issues are also available online at the Portal to Texas History. Access to the Quarterly through JSTOR and Project MUSE is also available at certain institutions.    

Printed copies of the Quarterly are a benefit of membership in the Texas State Historical Association and are widely available in public and private libraries.

Cover: An artistic illustration of the Woman’s Pavilion at HemisFair ’68, which took place in San Antonio. The exhibits in this building celebrated the women of the Western Hemisphere, but as Nancy Baker Jones explains in “The Way We Were: Gender and the Woman’s Pavilion, HemisFair ’68,” the ideals of womanhood on display were generally not reflective of the then newly resurgent feminist movement. San Antonio Fair, Inc., Records, 1962–1995 (bulk 1964–1968) MS 31, University of Texas at San Antonio Libraries Special Collections.
