  • Obituary*: "Howard services scheduled today
       "Services will be held today for Dr. Dale Elmo Howard, a one-time assistant superintendent of schools in Travis County, who was a lifelong Texas educator active in state Democratic politics.
       "Howard suffered a heart attack Tuesday. He was 71.
       "'He was one of the last, old-time ‘good old boys,’ you might say,' said [a daughter] of Austin, one of his two daughters. 'He knew Wright Patman and Lyndon Johnson. He and my mother used to make about every one of the state nominating conventions. He helped Lyndon get nominated as vice president in 1960.'
       "Rev. Lujet McCullough of St. David’s Community Hospital will officiate at services at 11 a.m. at the Cook-Walden Funeral Home. Burial will be at Austin Memorial Park.
       "Until 1979, Howard taught part-time at St. Edward’s University, capping a lengthy career in Texas education that began as a teacher in Commanche [sic] County in 1931. There, he also rose to the position of school superintendent before assuming the vice presidency of C.C. Porter, a Dallas textbook sales company.
       "After a five-year stint beginning in 1949 with the Travis County school system—which ceased operation in 1978—Howard went on to be superintendent of schools in Texarkana and, in 1962, a professor of education at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene. . . ."8

Colberta Davidson

F, ID# 5826, b. 18 July 1865, d. 11 November 1940
  • Note*: In a 1965 interview, a woman who was married in San Antonio in 1908 recalled that Colberta Millett sang at the wedding, that she was "not too tall, slightly heavy, with reddish hair" and was "a very interesting person and seemed to like people," and that she had heard that she enjoyed walking barefoot in the dew each morning. A 1960s survey of San Antonio's City Cemetery No. 1 stated that her stone was still standing in the Millett family plot, but a visitor to the plot in December 2003 was unable to find any markers.13,14
