About Mark Pusateri:
After working as a marketing director and technical writer, Mark Pusateri became a rare book dealer in 1997, specializing in Texas history. For several years he was the proprietor of the Texas Book Room at Antiques Houston.
Since 2007 he has worked with Michelle Haas to fulfil the mission of Copano Bay Press to “Bring rare works of Texas history back to life.” Together they have brought more than fifty important volumes of Texas history back from obscurity, as well as historic maps and Texas images.
Since 2010 Mark has written Texas Reader – The Texas History Newsletter, producing nearly five hundred short articles intended to spark a deeper interest in Texas history.
In 2021 he and Michelle Haas founded the Texas History Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, in order to raise awareness of Texas history throughout the state, assist historic sites with needed improvements, support scholars conducting new research on Texas history topics and host an annual history symposium where that research can be presented to attendees.
Mark is an eighth generation Texan, born and raised in Houston.
