  Texas Map Society Fall Meeting  
(Conferences/Symposia)

Attendees to the Eighth Biennial Virginia Garrett Lectures on the History of Cartography (Oct. 5, 2012) are also invited to attend the Texas Map Society's Fall Meeting at the University of Texas at Arlington Library Sixth Floor Parlor the following day, on Saturday, October 6. There will be an overall Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico theme to most of these presentations as well. Among the featured speakers for the TMS meeting will be Jim Bruseth, who will be presenting "How Maps Doomed a Seventeenth-Century French Expedition and Enabled a Twentieth-Century Shipwreck Discovery: The Story of La Salle's Ship La Belle." Professor Bruseth is the former director of the archaeology division at the Texas Historical Commission that sponsored the excavation of La Belle, one of the most exciting recent finds in the history of North American archaeology. For further details on the Texas Map Society's meeting see their website at http://www.texasmapsociety.org/events.html.
