Rev. J. Shelly Meyer -
"At the age of fifteen years he moved with his parents to Philadelphia, where he was for the next fifteen years engaged as a clerk and bookkkeeper in a hat store, and learning a trade. At the age of thirty he attended Ponk College in Missouri; then he went to Northwestern Seminary and studied for the ministry in the Methodist Episcopal Church. Immediately after his marriage he and his wife started the training of women for mission work, in which they have since been engaged. They now have a school building with 234 dormitory rooms, and have plans for enlargement. The institution is known as the Chicago Training School, of which Mr. Meyer is the Superintendent, and Mrs. Meyer is the Corresponding Secretary. They have one child: Shelly Rider Meyer, born September 5, 1887."
