Constance C. Bradshaw-Morrill, the daughter and only child of Frederick W. Bradshaw, the first director of training of the Alamo Scouts Training Center, died today (June 5, 2015), in St. Louis, one day before her 80th birthday. "Connie was a strong supporter of the Alamo Scouts Association in its early days and took great pride in her connection to the Alamo Scouts," said ASHF Historian Lance Zedric. "But more important, she was a good friend with a strong sense of the historical importance of what her father did. She opened up her home to me and allowed me to examine her father's war time letters and other effects, and she was instrumental in the writing of "Silent Warriors" in 1995. She was a remarkable woman. I only wished she had lived to see the Bradshaw Hall at Ft. Bragg, and to truly see the tangible impact that her father made--and still makes--in the lives of so many soldiers."
Named as one of the top 100 water colorists in America, Connie's paintings have been exhibited in some of the country's most prestigious galleries, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and The National Academy Galleries in New York City, The St. Louis Art Museum, and The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio, just to name a few. After a devastating auto accident in 1975, Connie was unable to paint but turned her immense talents to breeding and racing Arabian horse. Of course, her most successful, and favorite horse, was named, "Alamo Scout."
The Alamo Scouts Historical Foundation conveys its deepest sympathies to her daughter, Constance; her son, Fred, and to the rest of her family.
