dear miss horslund:
although my mother is not a graduate of sui, she
has four children who have attended or who are
attending now. mrs. paul h. anderson, mother of six
children, all of whom have attended college, taught
school before her marriage. she has many interests,
which keep her alert and interesting.
mrs. anderson is active in local , county ,
state and national politics, an officer in the
democratic women's club in webster county, a member
of the women's club and partially responsible for
the establishment of the gowrie garden club. as a
member of the gowrie women's club, she is
particularly interested in the town library, to
which the club contributes money and books. because
she enjoys working with people, mrs. anderson was
township chairman of the 1951 red cross drive, a
census taker in the 1950 census, and on the women's
club memorial day committee.
by being such an active alert person, she has
been a stimulus to her children, raising them
patiently and intelligently, serving as a wise
counselor and close to her adult family. mrs.
anderson, with her many outside interests has a
large garden, does much of her own home
redecorating and is an excellent seamstress who
makes clothes for her own children and for her two
i feel that mrs. anderson is a representative
sui mother, for in order that her children could
achieve their goals, she sacrificed enough to give
them the opportunities, yet still allowing them to
make their own way towards a college education and
a full meaningful life.
