Plan to head to UT Arlington’s Central Library on October 5-6, 2018, for the Eleventh Biennial Virginia Garrett Lectures on the History of Cartography and the Fall 2018 meeting of the Texas Map Society.

The event kicks off on Friday, October 5, with the 2018 Garrett Lectures. The theme Paths to Highways: Routes of Exploration, Settlement and Commerce is broadly based and provides expansive opportunities for our five speakers — Will Bagley, Wes Brown, David Buisseret, Glen Ely, and Jason Wiese – to explore.
