Overflow Crowd Hears Campbell

April 26, 2004
null More than sixty persons crowded into the library's meeting room on April 26, 2004 to hear Randolph B. Campbell discuss Texas history. Campbell, author of the recently issued Gone to Texas: A History of the Lone Star State, of the classic An Empire for Slavery: The Peculiar Institution in Texas 1821-1865, and many other works, outlined his view of Texas as a southern rather than a western state and fielded several questions from the audience.
