Dr. Emilio Zamora from the University of Texas and Dr. Andrés Tijerina with Austin Community College are spearheading a new “Handbook of Mexican American Texas.” The project is a spinoff for the Handbook of Texas Online. The project was unveiled at the annual Texas Historical State Association Convention held in San Antonio on March 6-8. Initially, the goal is to include 100 articles on Tejano individuals or events of historical significance. Ultimately, many more articles are envisioned.
