Purchase of piano by Elizabeth Eicher from Mary Parker Brown, in MPB's handwriting, one of the few samples I found, March 1943. Still in Franklin. Curious if the piano made it to Lakeland.
Letter addressed to Betty and Mary Parker in 1945 from brother Bill now in the military.
Mary Parker Brown graduated on May 23, 1902 from Miamisburg High School..
Mary Parker Brown the only adult photo that is an William A Eichers Collection. Like as she was an a school teacher in Franklin. Looks to be in her 40's.
I found three bachelors degrees in arts and literature for Mary Parker. Two from Georgetown College in Kentucky is a new one for me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgetown_College
And in Latin from Vassar College in New York, MDCCCCX, the 8th of June another BA, the third in 3 years. And note Mary is Mariam, My sense is after three degrees, she began teaching in the Franklin Schools in Franklin Ohio.
Here is Mary Parker Brown's High School Life Certificate issued in Nov 1924, after some time teaching I imagine.....According to notes I have from Betty's brother when Mary Parker and Betty moved from Franklin to Lakeland FL in 1947, Mary Parker would have been 63, and Betty 34.
Betty writing to Bill “I wrote for 23 years, and quit when television took over” wrote for church papers, teens and pre teens, Methodists paid $50/story. Wrote over a thousand stories and sold over 90% of them. She sought employment at Southern (Florida Southern College (commonly referred to as Florida Southern, Southern or FSC) is a private college located in Lakeland, Florida, United State) when her two markets dried up in 1969. Worked for Dr Burnette until April 1982 when she retired and started to draw SS at age 69.
