Directors' Forum to Explore the Presidential Libraries of Texas

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The directors of the three Presidential Libraries in Texas will kick off a three-city tour with a free forum discussion May 14, 7 p.m. CDT at Rice University's Baker Institute in Houston.

Texas is the only state to have three Presidential Libraries. The directors' forum series "Lone Star Treasures: The Presidential Libraries of Texas" will explore the role of Presidential Libraries and the presidents they represent.

The directors are Warren L. Finch, George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, College Station; Mark K. Updegrove, LBJ Presidential Library, Austin; and Alan C. Lowe, George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Dallas.

Finch said the interactive directors' forum will provide information about each library's collections, programs and responsibility to teach about history, government and the presidency.

"I'm excited to tell the story of our Presidential Library and the life and times of President George H.W. Bush, and I know my fellow directors are excited to tell their stories as well," Finch said. "Presidential Libraries are an incredible resource for researchers and academics, and build positive, lasting partnerships in the communities to which they belong. Our three Presidential Libraries truly are Lone Star Treasures."
