510 Jensen Blanche Kelso Bruce Elementary School, built in 1920 at 713 Bringhurst, was named for a distinguished former slave who founded a school for blacks in Missouri during the Civil War. Bruce went on to hold a number of important political posts before becoming the first African-American elected to the U.S. Senate (1875–1881). He subsequently served as registrar of the U.S. Treasury until his death in 1898. A replacement facility at 510 Jensen Drive was completed in 2007.
CRAWFORD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL—CLOSED MAY 2011. See Atherton ES, Bruce ES, Sherman ES 1510 JensenIt was the first principal of this school, built in 1917, who suggested that it be named for Joseph H. Crawford, a professor of science at Prairie View State Normal and Industrial College (now Prairie View A&M University) and a former HISD teacher.
In 1980, the HISD renamed Southland Elementary School, whose original campus was built in 1915, to Ruby Lockhart Thompson, who retired after 46 years. Thompson taught at Blanche Bruce Elementary School, served as principal of George Turner and Twenty Third Street Elementary Schools, and became the district’s first black female supervisor. She is also the daughter of Lucian Lockhart, for whom another HISD school is named. The school moved to its third location in 2007.
