Biographical Sketch

Anah Marie Leland, daughter of Marie Angelique Schoenberger and Francis W. Leland, was born Oct. 12, 1901. She had one brother, Eaton Francis Leland. She was originally from Chicago, IL, but came to Houston in 1910 and attended Central High School and Rice Institute. She graduated Central High School in 1918 and Rice Institute in 1922 with a degree in Philosophy. While at Rice she met James Lockhart Autry III and became engaged. However, Autry died in 1922 (he graduated 1921) shortly before the wedding. Anah Marie at some point moved in with the Autry family in Courtlandt Place and became romantically involved with Autry’s best friend, W.M. Streetman, an attorney with Andrews and Kurth. They became engaged and married in 1925. She was actively involved in the early cultural, civic and social activities of Houston. She died in Houston on Feb. 20, 1995 and is buried in Glenwood Cemetery.
