Contribute to the Handbook of Houston

Houston gets its own special handbook in the Texas State Historical Association’s Handbook of Texas Online

We are excited to announce the Handbook of Houston, a joint project between the Houston History Alliance and the Texas State Historical Association. Over the next few months, we will be looking for people interested in contributing entries to the handbook. Contributors may be professional historians, students, or almost anyone with a love for Houston and history, and each entry is a concise, encyclopedic-style article of approximately 400-800 words that focuses on an element of Houston’s past.

Interested in becoming a contributor for the Handbook of Houston? Contributions are welcome! However, we ask that you do not submit articles without prior consultation. If you are interested in authoring an entry or would like more information, please contact Lindsay Scovil Dove at 713-828-3030 or Lindsay will advise you regarding the availability of a topic and will answer any specific questions you may have.

The Handbook of Houston is divided into a number of different categories and topics, providing a broad and inclusive look at Houston’s history. Feel free to browse through the categories list as you think about potential future articles that you may inquire about possibly contributing.
