Frances Rosenthal Kallison, a co-founder of the Texas Jewish Historical Society, died Dec. 30 in San Antonio at age 96. Kallison was among the earliest scholars to approach Texas Jewish history as a subject for serious study. In 1968, she was instrumental in getting the state’s Jewish history incorporated into a permanent exhibit at the University of Texas Institute of Texan Cultures.
