TIL Members 1936-Present

The list of TEXAS INSTITUTE OF LETTERS MEMBERS from 1936 to 1966 was compiled from lists included in William Vann’s History of the Texas Institute of Letters: 1936 to 1966. However, Betty Wiesepape found that Vann’s list of inactive members in 1966 was probably not a complete listing. The list of TIL members from 1966 through 2012 was compiled from membership lists that appeared in TIL banquet programs with the exception of 1967 and 1988. No programs for those years were ever located, but Bob Compton located a list of new members who were inducted in 1988 when he was putting together the historical list of TIL officers, and because Betty Wiesepape had membership lists from 1966 and 1968, she was able to determine all members who were inducted between 1966 and 1968. Bob Compton supplied additional lists of new members that appeared in newspaper reports, as well. When discrepancies existed, Betty Wiesepape recorded the year that the member in question was first listed in a program or in a banquet program.
