Dedicated to the history & love of the American West

2023 Wild West History Roundup

San Antonio, TX, July 12 – 15

The 2023, 16th Annual WWHA Roundup will be at the historic Menger Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, July 12-July 15, to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Texas Rangers.
At this time, we are extending an invitation to all historians of the Wild West to submit proposals for papers to be presented at the meeting. Papers about the Rangers in general, specific Rangers, and the people with whom they associated or dealt, would make good topics.

Proposals should contain author contact information and a brief (250 word maximum) abstract of the topic to be presented – with emphasis on new topics or new information on old topics. Additionally, give a short presentation of your background and work in Wild West history. Proposal submission deadline is December 20, 2022. Send proposals via e-mail to Roundup co-chair Pam Potter by clicking the button below. Determinations of selected speakers and topics will be made by January 15, 2023.
