Miss Etha Josephine Babcock.

There are people whom once having met, you always remember.  I can't fancy anyone's ever forgetting Josephine Babcock.  Her face is always radiant and she is so clever that her personality makes an impression not easily effaced.  By profession she is a Journalist and has contributed to may newspapers and periodicals.  She has a smooth, interesting style and one always reads her articles to the last word.  She is the daughter of the late Nathan Lee Babcock, the son of Stanton and Thirza Babcock of New York.  He was a soldier in the Civil War of Co. C, 19th Iowa Infantry.  Her mother, Ophelia Smith Babcock, is directly descended from Samuel Rogers of Revolutionary fame.  Miss Babcock was educated in the public schools, Washington Academy and the Iowa Wesleyan College where she was an Alpha Xi Delta.  She is a trained librarian, had charge of the library in Washington and worked one summer with a story teller in Hamilton Park, Chicago, this being a branch of library work.  She is especially interested in public play grounds and all that benefits children.  She is a member of the D. A. R. and of P. E. O. and has served the Iowa Federation of Woman's Clubs as recording secretary.  She is chairman of the Press Committee of the first district.  Miss Babcock enjoys travel and she loves people, of all kinds and conditions and makes friends with them all.
