April 10th, 2012– Celebrating 90 years of the Dallas Historical Society, 1922-2012: The Early Years.
When the Dallas Historical Society was organized in 1922, it had no home, no staff, and no money. What it did have was a small but dedicated group of members who believed that, to be a great city, Dallas needed a historical society. For a dozen years the Society floundered, struggling to define and fulfill its mission. But its supporters never gave up. Within a quarter of a century, the Society had a permanent home, a professional staff, and at least some financial resources. The story of these early years is one of tenacity, resourcefulness, and generosity.
