The LHS's spring annual meeting was met with a large turnout.  The event was held on Sunday, February 17, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. in the Formby Room of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library. Following the business portion of the meeting, Dr. Robert Carr, retired Lubbock physician, presented a program on “History in Our Own Back Yard.” The program touched on such little known events as the Yellow House Canyon Battle and was infused with historical information on Buffalo Springs, Ransom Canyon, the Indian Truce site, the Coronado campsite, the Texas Ranger camp, the McKenzie vs Quanah Parker Battle site, Camp Supply and more. This program served as a reminder that this area is very rich in history.
