Example text

She kept membership in state and federal medical societies until her death. She appeared on their programs and contributed articles to their publications. Many of us well remember Dr. Sherman travelling the countryside with white horse and top buggy as a country doctor.

It can be said with certainty that after their parents were gone, the only person that influenced either of them was the other of them.

For a time she was instructor in drawing at Carleton College and then supervisor of drawing in the public schools of Tacoma, Washington. In 1895 she returned to her ancestral home to help care for her aging parents. Any reference to the life history of Miss Althea R. Sherman is quite deficient without including a word about Dr. E. Amelia Sherman. The two sisters never married and from the time of the passing of their mother in 1902 until Dr. Sherman's passing in 1940 they occupied the Sherman Homestead together.
