Miss Elizabeth Wilkins Dunlap

Some one has said "He has achieved success who has lived well, who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;  who fills his niche and accomplishes his task;  who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it;  who looks for the best in others and gives the best he has."  Measured by this standard, the life of Miss Elizabeth W. Dunlap is a success, for daily she does all these things.  She was born in Zanesville, Ohio, the daughter of David Riddle Dunlap and Harriett Ann Wilkins.  She came to Keokuk, September 1879, which city has since been her home.  She has one brother, John A. Dunlap, who is cashier of the Keokuk National Bank.  She was educated in the schools of Zanesville and Keokuk, taking advanced work in the University of Chicago and in the Harvard summer school.  For twenty-six years she has been a very successful teacher in the Keokuk schools, having been principal of the Garfield building for fourteen years.  She is a member of St. John's Episcopal church.  She has served the Keokuk Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution as its regent, being a descendent of James Newsmith, Jr., who fought in the War for Independence.  She is fond of travel and has twice crossed this continent, beside other trips to points of interest.  She has made two trips abroad and visited most of the countries of Europe.
