Adele Rowland (July 10, 1883 – August 8, 1971) was an American actress and singer.
She was born on July 10, 1883, in Washington, D.C., the youngest daughter of Abraham D. Levi and Addie (Lloyd) Levi. She had a sister, Mabel Rowland (1882–1943), who was an actress, monologist, producer and director, and a brother, Harmon L. Rowland (1896–1971), a real estate broker in Los Angeles, California.
A soprano known for her effervescent personality, Rowland was a standout in musical comedy productions from 1904, specializing in "story songs". She was best known for her rendition of the song "Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag", which she introduced in 1915 in the Broadway production of "Her Soldier Boy."
After marrying Tearle, she moved to Los Angeles, where they were a prominent couple. After his death in 1938, she made a career playing small parts in motion pictures, acting well into the 1950s.
She died on August 8, 1971, in Los Angeles.
