With the eruption of Spindletop on January 10, 1901, the face of Texas was forever changed. Land where cattle once roamed freely gave way to wildcatters and oil derricks. This new industry dramatically changed the lives of Texas cowhands. Some stayed on and enjoyed the new era of Black Gold. Others chose to move away rather than submit to this different kind of lease. - GH
Gerald Harvey Jones, known professionally as G. Harvey, died Nov. 13 at age 84. In his time, Jones was among the most famous artists in Austin. He painted popular Western scenes, but also urban streets capes set at the turn of the past century. His work was apologetically nostalgic, casting a golden glow on views of an Americana that already were fading before his birth in 1933 in San Antonio.
