NURSING PIONEER DIES IN OTTUMWA
Mrs. E.W. Brown of Addison, Me., Was Spending Winter With Brother.
Mrs. E. Wilton Brown, 70 years old, widow of Dr. E.W. Brown, died suddenly at 8 a.m. today from a heart attack at the home of her brother, C.F. Alline, 222 East Second street. She had come here in September from Addison, Me., to spend the winter.
Mrs. Brown was known as a pioneer in nursing education. After her graduation from Brooklyn Homeopathic hospital in 1892 she and Miss Linda Richards organized a hospital school. Later Mrs. Brown became superintendent of the school. She also was one of the first two students enrolled in a course in hospital economics at Teachers college, and later became the first nurse inspector of training schools in New York.
She was born in East Machias, Me., in 1864, was educated in Iowa and taught in this state for six years. She was advised to go east and enter a training school, but this was successfully opposed by her family until 1891, when she entered the Brooklyn hospital.
The body will be taken to Addison, Me., tonight, and funeral arrangements will be made there later. Mr. Alline is the only immediate survivor.
