Squabble's Over: Rival Western History Groups Merge - Western Travel Magazine | News | Rodeos | History | Towns | Old West | New West, 29 Mar 2014 [cached]
These two history groups, each with a worldwide membership, have created the primary Wild West history organization in the world, according to Robert McCubbin, president of the combined association.
"I was on the committee that worked for more than a year looking into the possibility of the two groups coming together," McCubbin told OldWestNewWest.Com. "We Did a poll of membership-combined is 600-a pretty good group, and the response was overwhelmingly in favor of coming together as one group."
The two groups were virtually identical, even down to their agendas. Each published four journals a year, and each had a major conference each year.
"A couple of years ago, the idea started of coming together," McCubbin, who is publisher-emeritus of True West magazine, said.
"Each group selected seven board members, and nominated one more - me," McCubbin said. "I didn't seek it, and it will only be for a year," he added about his presidency. McCubbin was with WOLA, and on its board, and was also a member of NOLA. It seems he was the natural choice to help integrate the two groups and help launch WWHA.
"I think the members will stay on board," he said. "I'm pleased with the way things are going, there is a lot of enthusiasm, and we are getting good support."
McCubbin said the WWHA is dedicated to providing publications and forums for the enlightenment and enjoyment of its members, facilitating and encouraging research, study, writing, presentation, and preservation of the history and the lore of the people, events, and places that made the American West "wild" in the last half of the nineteenth century.
That vision embraces the lawmen, outlaws, gunfighters, rustlers, vigilantes, feuds, shady ladies, saloons, cow towns, and mining camps, along with recognizing and honoring those individuals and institutions that make significant contributions to the knowledge and preservation of Wild West history and lore, he said.
"We're starting with the same focus that both groups had, the outlaws, and lawmen and gunfighters," he said.
McCubbin said the new name itself does offer the possibility of expanding into other areas of the American Wild West.
The new group's annual convention was to be held July 16-19, 2008, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. McCubbin said there wwas to be "14 great speakers, half covering Oklahoma related topics, and half dealing with the greater Wild West," and six interesting "break-out" sessions. - WOLA Board of Directors, 14 Feb 2009 [cached]
