Wordless Wednesday: Grandmother Fern 1913

My maternal Grandmother, Mary Fern Newby (later: Runyan) 1913 - age 20



  1. Very nice photo. I'm wondering what she is reading, while taking care of her cold.

  2. Very nice. Did she have kind of career outside the home (i.e. teacher)?

  3. Barbara, I would love to know what that book is also! I zoomed in as far as I could and still couldn't see the title! far as I know my grandmother did not have a career and now that you have mentioned it though, I am wondering if she might have had one for a while. I'm actually going to look into that more. Her brother was a teacher and a principal and there were many teachers in my family. Good question!
