Colorado Citizen, July 21, 1860, August 31, 1861, November 2, 1861; Eighth Census of the United States (1860) Schedule 6, Colorado County, Texas; "The Diary of Rev. J. J. Scherer, D. D." in Wilson, A Brief History of Marion College, p. 46. The female seminary announced the addition of Loomis to their faculty with an advertisement in the July 21, 1860 edition of the Citizen. Though Loomis had thereby departed, Colorado College's ad with Loomis listed as principal, which had run since January, continued to run through the issue of August 11. The college may not have conducted sessions for the following year, for their next newspaper ad did not appear until August 31, 1861. The 1860 census reported that each school had three teachers, that the seminary had sixty students and had generated $2400 in income, and that the college had seventy students and had generated $1800.
