Fifth Annual Convention

of the

Texas State Association of Architects

Held in the

Board of Trade Hall, Dallas, May 13 and 14, 1890

Tuesday, May 13, 1890.

The meeting was called to order at 5 o'clock p. m., by President James Wahrenberger, of San Antonio.

In the absence of the Secretary, W. W. Larmour, of Waco, Geo. W. Stewart, of Dallas, was appointed Secretary pro tem.

The roll call showed ten members present. The reading of the minutes of the last annual meeting were on motion dispensed with, as the same were in the hands of each member of the association.

The President explained that the regular convention was to be held in San Antonio on the third Thuesday in January, but owing to the small number of members in attendance, the Executive Committee deemed it best after some preliminary work to adjourn to meet in Dallas on the 13th of May.

He also suggested that owing to the lateness of the hour of assembling, caused by the non-arrival of members of the association, only a short session would be held that evening.

J. J. Kane, Chairman of the Executive Committee, remaked that he had no report to offer, and did not think that a night session would be necessary as the Committee had not been able to meet he could not make any report, and moved that the Executive Committee meet on Wednesday morning at 8 o'clock and the regular meeting convene at 10 o'clock. Carried.

Moved by Geo. E. Dickey, seconded by A. Ullrich, that the Convention adjourn until 10 o'clock Wednesday morning. Carried.
