  • "I Want to See Your Machete" by Barclay Gibson 5-29-12
    It was a momentous occasion for me... I was finally going to meet Ruthie Cade. Literally minutes before, I had been able to find, after a previous failed attempt, ... the 1,089th marker I have seen of the 1,136 placed way back in 1936 to memorialize the multi-year celebration of Texas' Independence from Mexico. Here I was, after having seen nearly 96% of that total, meeting the one person who made a lot of that search possible.

  • Texas Centennial
    Index by Sarah Reveley

  • During the 1936 Texas Centennial celebration, the state built memorial museums, restored historical structures, improved parks, erected statues of important Texans, and intalled over 1,000 historical markers.

    The Crystal City Statue That Might’ve Been
    Max Sandfield suggested that Popeye be carved from native Texas limestone. Today the suggestion would’ve won him the contest hands-down, but back in 1937 limestone might have been considered too dignified for a mere cartoon character - despite whatever contributions to nutrition-awareness. Medina, Texas has since erected an oversized limestone apple - and courthouses around the state are carved with a variety of flora, fauna, and limestone cowboys. It appears Mr. Sandfield’s proposal was ahead of its time. ... more
