IN MEMORIAM
RUDOPH L. BIESELE
Rudolph Leopold Biesele, Professor Emeritus of History, died in Austin on January 4, 1960. He was born in York's Creek in Guadalupe County, Texas, on January 29, 1886. He is
survived by his widow, Mrs. Anna E. Biesele; three sons, Ferdinand Charles, Rudolph L., Jr.,
John J., and one daughter, Mrs. Grace Annette Gregory; sixteen grandchildren; and two brothers, Carl H. Biesele of San Antonio, and Hugo F. Biesele of New Braunfels.
Professor Biesele retired from active teaching in The University in 1957. He remained active in research work, however, dealing with the life and career of Barnard E. Bee, the history of Comal County, Texas, music on the York's Creek in Guadalupe County, and the Biesele and Bading families of Guadalupe County.
Professor Biesele held BA, 1909, MA, 1910, and PhD, 1928, degrees from The University of Texas.
During his active career Dr. Biesele held the following editorships: Member of the Board of Editors of the Journal of Southern History, 1945-1648; member of the Board of Editors of the Southwestern Social Science Quarterly, 1948-1957; Book Review Editor of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, 1939-1957; Associate Editor, the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, 1939-1957.
Born in Texas and having grown to manhood among the descendants of the early German pioneers, Dr. Biesele used his own heritage and that of his German forebears as his major research interest.
His strong attachment to the Texas scene found expression in his manifold services to the Texas State Historical Association where he was for many years a member of the executive council and an associate editor of the Southwestern Quarterly, with the assignment of handling
the book review section.
