Mrs. Adele B. Looscan died at her home in Houston,
Texas, November 23, 1935. She was the daughter of Andrew
Briscoe, a captain in the battle of San Jacinto, and Mary
Jane Harris, a pioneer resident of Harrisburg, Texas. She
was President of the Texas State Historical Association
from 1915 to 1925, and contributed liberally both labor and
money to its maintenance. She was an able and singularly
candid and detached student of Texas history. Many of her
articles were published in the Quarterly of the Texas State
Historical Association-the most notable being her history
of Harris County, 1822-1845. She contributed studies also
to A Comprehensive History of Texas (edited by Dudley G.
Wooten) and to local Houston papers. During the last six
or eight years of her life she was a helpless invalid.
