Mrs. Henry A. Schlick

Mrs. Flora Schlick was born at Charles City in 1868.  Her father, Samuel F. Ferguson, was the son of James Ferguson of Scotland, a member of the Ferguson clan.  Her mother, Nancy McKinney, born at old Salem, N. Y., one of ten children.  The oldest was the mother of John J. Hill, president of the Hill Publishing Co., of New York.  Mrs. Schlick was educated at the State University and at Iowa College at Ames.  She was a successful teacher for four years in the schools of Charles City.  On May 20, 1891, at Charles City, she was married to Henry A. Schlick.  Three sons have been born to them:  Marvin F., Forrest S., and Robert, (deceased).  She is a member of the First M. E. Church, was superintendent of the Junior League for five years, for several years teacher of a young men's Bible class, and president of the Woman's Home Missionary Society for five years.  For six years she was corresponding secretary of the Decorah District.  She was the conference delegate to the national convention of the Woman's Home Missionary Society held in Washington, D. C., in 1913.  For fourteen years she has been a member of the Cultus Club, and has served in all of its offices.  Since 1910 she has been Chairman of the fourth district I. F. W. C's.  She is also a member of the state board and of the legislative commission, I. F. W. C.  The fourth district contains about thirty club towns, many of which have more than one federated club.  From these facts can be judged the success of the work done here under Mrs. Schlick's chairmanship.  To her own mind the greatest work she has done has been in her own home, in the rearing of her two sons, young men who would bring pride to the heart of any mother.
