The Mayoral Proclamation, sponsored by Council Member Melissa Noreiga and presented by Council Member Ed Gonzalez, reads in part, “Houston History magazine seeks to educate and entertain while exploring and preserving important aspects of Houston’s history and culture. With the goal of producing the best magazine about the history of any city in the nation, Houston History strives to make our region more aware of its history. Houston History presents original research… and features articles of people and communities who might otherwise be neglected from the historical record.”
