Meril Markley's articles on European travel in the Newsletters of the Wine Society of Texas (Greater Houston Chapter) have their own page where you can download excerpts or the complete set.  You can also download our Paris Guide for experiencing the City of Light -- whether for the first time or as a seasoned pro.

While researching French antique furniture we happened upon the story of the first modern corporations dating back to the 14th century in France.  Click on the photo to learn more about these commercial pioneers and the corporate governance system that ensured their company's survival for 600 years.  You can also download Meril's presentation from an international law conference in Rome, Italy sponsored by McGeorge School of Law.
