Dr. Maberry, assistant professor of history at McMurry, is re-joining the THF’s board after a hiatus. With a Ph.D. from Texas Christian University, the Abilene resident is the author of the historically important Texas Flags. In conjunction with the book’s publication, Maberry was also a guest curator for the exhibit Texas Flags 1836-1945 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Since 1954, the Texas Historical Foundation has funded preservation and education projects around the state and helps promote the cultural legacy of Texas. Among the group’s main efforts is a preservation grants program and its award-winning HERITAGE magazine. For information, visit the THF website at
