TPA DIGITIZATION PROJECT
President John German has been working on the Digitization Project with the Wineburgh Philatelic Research Library at The University of Texas at Dallas, Richardson, Texas. The Wineburgh is the home of the TPA Archives. The finding aid to the records is located at http://www.utdallas.edu/library/specialcollections/tpa.html. It is titled "Guide to the Texas Philatelic Association, Inc. Records, 1896-2006 W061-07." The current project is an effort to digitize the historic earliest philatelic publications in Texas that includes the Texas Philatelic Association's first newsletters. The longterm goal is to have a complete run of The Texas Philatelist issues available online through the Wineburgh Library by way of a grant.
