This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Empire City, OR on Nov. 24, 1876. The Hanscom family moved to California in 1881. About 1892 Adelaide began her art studies in San Francisco at the Mark Hopkins Institute where she excelled at miniature painting and design. She commuted each day by ferry from her home in Berkeley where she taught drawing in the public schools for several years. During this time she was also working with photography and took over Laura Adams' studio in the Flood Bldg in 1902. After this time her artistic energies were mostly devoted to photography. In 1907 her design of the medallion for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Expo was awarded a cash prize. In 1908 she married Arthur Leeson, a mining engineer. After his death in WWI, her mental health suffered. She began to hear voices, was committed to Napa State Hospital, and attemped suicide. The artist was fatally struck by an automobile in Los Angeles on Nov. 19, 1931. Exh: Calif. State Fair, 1892-1900; Mechanics' Inst.
