Praise for this new edition:

“What a novel and productive idea to reprint the 1936 Texas Almanac.  It’s an invaluable source of hard-to-get historical facts and statistics, fascinating odds and ends, and a delightful reminiscence.”

                Darwin Payne, author of many books on Texas, including Big D: Triumphs and Troubles

“For nearly 150 years, the Texas Almanac has provided a detailed portrait of the state—its geography, population, industry, and commerce. But the 1936 Almanac was special, the largest to that date, celebrating the state’s 100th year of independence.  SMU’s William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies has rendered a great service to all students of Texas history—both professional and amateur—by republishing this valuable and rare work.”
