Dr. Anne W. Fearn
Berkeley, Calif., April 29 (AP) - Dr. Anne Walter Fearn, 71, for 44 years a physician in China, died yesterday just two weeks after publication of her book, "My Days of Strength."
A native of Holly Springs, Miss., she defied tradition for a southern belle of that time period by entering medical school. She went to China in 1893 and established a sanitarium at Shanghai. She said she delivered 6,017 babies during her career in the Orient.
She retired last year. Her ashes will be sent to China.
John Burrus Fearn
1871–1926 (m. 1896)
