The Texas State Historical Association added three new fellows at this year’s Annual Meeting: Glen Sample Ely, Kenneth Hafertepe, and Guadalupe San Miguel.
Glen Sample Ely earned his Ph.D. in history at Texas Christian University and has contributed to the understanding of Texas history in many ways. He has directed two dozen historical documentaries, published journal articles, and is the author of The Texas Frontier and the Butterfield Overland Mail, 1858–1861 (University of Oklahoma Press, 2016) and Where the West Begins: Debating Texas Identity (Texas Tech University Press, 2011). He is a Life Member of the Texas State Historical Association, has served as president of the West Texas Historical Association, and has contributed to many other regional and local historical societies.
Kenneth Hafertepe is chair of the Department of Museum Studies at Baylor University. He is a leading scholar of Texas material culture and architecture. Dr. Hafertepe’s books on the work of Austin architect Abner Cook, the French Legation in Austin, and on Galveston’s Ashton Villa, all published by the Texas State Historical Association more than twenty-five years ago, remain the definitive books on those subjects. His book Material Culture of German Texas, published in 2016 by Texas A&M University Press, won the 2016 Book Prize of the Southeastern Society of Architectural Historians, the Victorian Society in America’s Ruth Emery Award and the Texas State Historical Association’s Ron Tyler Award in 2017, and the Non-Fiction Award of Merit from the Philosophical Society of Texas in 2018.
Guadalupe San Miguel is professor of history at the University of Houston and is a prominent authority on Texas and Mexican American history. He is the author of Let All of Them Take Heed: Mexican Americans and the Quest for Educational Equality, which was first published in 1987 by the University of Texas Press. A critical review of all the state and federal court cases for Mexican American educational equity, Let All of Them Take Heed has become a standard reader for teachers in Texas. He is a co-author with Emilio Zamora and Andrés Tijerina of Mexican Americans of Texas: A History of Tradition and Struggle, the first-ever K–12 textbook on the history of Mexican Americans, which is under contract for publication in 2018 by Kendall Hunt Publishers. His other books demonstrate his diverse interest, including Tejano Proud: Tex Mex Music in the 20th Century (Texas A&M University Press, 2002) and Brown, Not White: School Integration and the Chicano Movement (Texas A&M University Press, 2005).
