Mary Britnelle, nurse, Texas

I am not related to the Britnell family, but in researching the history of women at Texas A&M University in College Station (Brazos Co.), Texas, I ran across a Mrs. Mary Britnelle, who was briefly campus nurse at the college.

First, I thought someone might be interested in these citations ?

"A. and M. College of Texas," Houston Post, 10 November 1907, p.35. "Mrs. Mary Britnelle has been elected matron and nurse at the College Station hospital. Mrs. Britnelle graduated at the Sealy hospital, Galveston, in 1907 ...."

"College Station," Houston Chronicle, 10 November 1907, section 2, p.9. The new nurse Mrs. Britnelle has arrived; Miss Mary Hutson has a dancing class for campus children.

From: Casey, Paul D., The History of the A.& M. College Trouble 1908. Waco: J.S. Hill & Co., 1908.
pp.6, 216 mentions campus nurse Mrs. Mary Britnelle in passing.

Unfortunately, the official campus records for that period were lost in a fire in 1912, so this is pretty much all I know about Mary Britnelle.

If anyone has any additional information about her, I would appreciate the information.
