Persons Interested in Rural Texas. Revised.
Hunsicker, Alma, Comp.; And Others
The directory was compiled to provide individuals and groups working with problems concerning rural Texas with a list of resource persons who could be of assistance in the resolution of these problems, and to encourage individuals with similar areas of interest/expertise to share information with each other. Listed alphabetically by five geographic regions, the directory contains: the name, address, and phone number of the interested persons; the area(s) of interest/expertise of the interested person designated by a code; and the listing of areas(s) of interest/expertise other than those included on the original survey form. A final section lists out-of-state persons who are interested in rural Texas. Twenty areas of interest are coded for ease of identification: agriculture, migrants, rural aged, rural children, rural crime and correction, rural development, rural education, rural electrification, rural employment, rural federal programs, rural government, rural health, rural medicine, rural mental health, rural nutrition, rural politics, rural substance abuse, rural transportation, rural water systems, and rural youth. There are 49 individuals listed for North Texas, 91 for South Texas, 32 for East Texas, 62 for West Texas, 118 for Central Texas, and 7 for out of state. (Author/BRR)
