By Keith Guthrie, Iris Guthrie (Illustrator)


Veteran newspaper publisher Keith Guthrie, always fascinated by the stories of old ports in his native South Texas, launched an in-depth study of the Gulf of Mexico ports from Corpus Christi on the south to Matagorda Bay when he retired from the newspaper business in Taft, only a stone's throw from the Gulf of Mexico. "Texas' Forgotten Ports" includes a study of Corpus Christi and Aransas Bay, San Antonio Bay, and Matagorda Bay. In addition to Corpus Christi, ports still exist al Aransas Pass, Rockport, and Portland. Those that have passed into oblivion include El Capano, Aransas City, St. Mary's of Aransas, Lamar, Port Preston, Black Point, Sharpsburg, Mesquite Landing, Matagorda, Linnville, Cox's Point, Dimmitt's Landing, Lavaca, Indianola, Saluria, and several small river ports.
