Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 14, 1876
Wharton County
Texas, USA
Death: Sep. 26, 1923
Dallas County
Texas, USA

Daughter of Douglas McLean Hooe & Mary Eliza Tilley

Lida Hooe graduated from Dallas High School as valedictorian in 1892. In 1924 the Sunset Hill Elementary School in Dallas was changed to Lida Hooe Elementary School in memory of the former teacher and writing supervisor.


Flags of the Dallas public schools were at half mast Friday in honor of Miss Lida Hooe, a teacher in the Dallas public schools for more than thirty years and one who served for the last twenty years as art supervisor. She brought to the Dallas public schools, national recognition for the standard of excellence maintained by the art department, and in doing so, became nationally known as one of the most efficient and alert art directors of the public schools of the country.

Miss Hooe died Thursday morning at 1 o'clock at her home, 4322 Junius street. Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the home of her sister, Mrs. Felix S. Hereford, 3918 Bowser avenue, North Dallas. Burial was in Oakland Cemetery. Dr. S. W. Williams of Grace Methodist Church and Dr. W. D. Bradfield of S. M. U., officiated. The white schools of the city were dismissed Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock to enable the teachers and pupils to attend the funeral services. Active pallbearers were W. E. Greiner, president of the Board of Education; W. C. Lemmon, a member of the Board of Education; J. L. Long, former Superintendent of City Schools; Dr. J. F. Kimball, Superintendent of the City Schools; Norman E. Crozier, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, and J. F. Peeler, supervisor of elementary grades. Honorary pallbearers were Royal B. Farnum, Boston, Mass.; C. Valentine Kirby, Harrisburg, Pa.; George H. Dutch, Nashville, Tenn., and Dr. Daniel A. Penick, Austin.

Miss Hooe is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Hereford, Miss Dodie Hooe, supervisor of the primary grades, both of Dallas, and Mrs. D. G. Boone of Fort Worth. Miss Hooe came to Dallas while a small girl and was educated in the Dallas public schools, being graduated from the Bryan Street High School. She served as supernumerary teacher under J. L. Long when he was Superintendent of Schools and later went into the grade schools, where she taught for ten years. She was made art supervisor of the city schools nearly twenty years ago.
