What better way to kick off Women’s History Month than with Adele Briscoe Looscan, the first female president of the Texas State Historical Association!
A “woman of her time,” she was “a combination of nineteenth-century tradition and twentieth-century progressivism. She flourished in the society of both women and men. She earned the respect of both. She was shaped by circumstance and by her heritage as a daughter of the Republic of Texas and was motivated throughout her life by her dedication to it.”
