The House of Representatives House Resolution No. 963 commemorates the Department of History with creating “an interactive website that puts the expertise of its faculty at the service of the general citizenry and that provides a public forum for the discussion of historical and contemporary events.”

It was sponsored by Rep. John Kuempel, (R-Seguin), a University of Texas graduate with a major in history.

The resolution also applauds the website for the way it “brings together a diverse group of historians with international reputations in every major historical field and time period and uses new technology to make their perspectives on topics in Texas, U.S., and world history available to a popular audience…”

The resolution notes that the House of Representatives holds Not Even Past in "high regard" and extends “best wishes for continued success” to the department and the website.
