Fifty-fifth Annual Meeting
Society for the History of Discoveries
October 30 – November 2, 2014
Austin, Texas

SHD Annual Meeting 2014
Preliminary Information

Call for Papers

The Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin will be the venue for SHD’s Annual Meeting 2014 - from October 30 (Thursday) to November 2 (Sunday). The reason for that rather late slot is the desire to coincide with the opening of the new gallery on the La Salle ’s ship(wreck) La Belle.

In addition to the sessions on Friday and Saturday a city tour is planned for Thursday afternoon (possibly including the map room of the Texas General Land Office ) and a day excursion on Sunday to San Antonio with the Spanish Missions and The Alamo . More Details will be forthcoming.

The CALL FOR PAPERS has been issued for this meeting. The deadline for submissions is April 11, 2014. Click HERE.
