The Robert E. Nail Jr. Archives is home to the Sallie Reynolds Matthews Ranching Collection. This collection of furniture, books, and artifacts centers on the headquarters of the Matthews' historic Lambshead Ranch and other area ranches and honors both its namesake, author of Interwoven, and her youngest child, Watkins (Watt) Reynolds Matthews.
Visitors are invited to enjoy an afternoon of lively discussion and light refreshments at the OJAC Spring Focus Lecture on Saturday, April, 7th.
Jason Dean, the Director of Special Collections and Archives at Southwestern University will be at the OJAC to share about the work of Carl Hertzog. Carl Hertzog defined the look of Texas, and West Texas in his work as a book designer and publisher.
This talk will focus on Hertzog's 1958 reprinting of Sallie Reynolds Matthews' Interwoven. Using Hertzog's own papers, Dean will share how Hertzog created this book, as well as his other work for the Matthews family and the Fandangle.
The OJAC Focus Lecture Series is a quarterly offering of presentations by artists, speakers and historians on a variety of social, cultural and historical topics ranging from the visual arts to community and Texas History.
This lecture will be in the Stasney Center for Education. This event is free and open to the public.
