Henry and Effie Osborn at home

Henry and Effie Osborn

Harry wrote that he was going to have to take over Miss Shoemaker’s botany class and Dr. Smart wanted him to teach classes even farther out of his specialty the following year. A letter from his sister Carrie led him to complain again about his family’s treatment of Effie.

“I had a conference with Dr Smart this afternoon about my future prospects here.” Osborn, Henry 1885-11-23
