A Diverse History: Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest before 1900 The David B. Warren Symposium, Volume 7
At the seventh biennial David B. Warren Symposium, seven scholars examined varied cultures in Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest before 1900 and their national and international context. The resulting papers explore how diverse peoples interacted with material culture across the American South and Southwest and at the nexus of international trade networks.
In this volume, Marion Oettinger explicates the biographies of six Texans of the 1700s. Evelyn Montgomery explores the transformation of Texas log cabins to homes reflecting a "domestic" architectural aesthetic. Donna Pierce delves into the domestic furnishings of homes in Spanish Colonial New Mexico. Harry J. Shafer considers the material culture of early Native peoples in what is now Texas.
