This section of this site will feature downloadable and searchable PDF files of TWT.
As
scanning several years of a publication is a huge project, additions will appear
as I have time. By the end of the year, TWT had grown to around 100 pages.
Access to this publication is courtesy of Gulf Coast Archive & Museum.

I need a bunch of help with this year, if you have copies you can loan/give me I would much appreciate it...email me.

And that was the end of the remarkable 25-year run of "This Week in Texas."
It was abrupt, like many last issues of publications, and no mention of the end
appeared in the last issue.

By the way, the March 3rd issue, the 25th anniversary, was the largest issue
of all, 170 pages, due to extra advertising.

But it was to be reborn, about three more times, until its final end in May of 2013.
I've pieced together these time frames for the four "generations."

TWT Generation One - March 1975 - August 11, 2000
Generation Two - June 23, 2006 to early 2008
Gen Three - March 13, 2009 to April 29, 2010
Gen Four - March 9, 2012 - May 24, 2013

 


2004
But wait, there was more, and yes, there was a special issue....

The issue at the right is a curious one, published as a Special Edition during June 2004.
Very oddly for any publication, no date is given, though it obvisiously was issued
in June, as he wished us a Happy Pride. In the preface publisher Steve Pardue candidly
talks about the challenges in the media world of maintaining a magazine,
considering the costs of print publication and competition with online sources.
And he talks about the plans for restarting publication...but that was not to be...at least
not until 2006, with John Carroll as General Manager. But the 16-page 2004 issue did feature
a Guide section, and you can read the entire 16-page issue here.
