FLORENCE AMELIA LINDERMAN PAPERS
[ca. 1840-1948]
1 cubic foot


Florence Amelia Linderman was born July 17, 1893 in Fleetwood, Berks County, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Daniel Boone Linderman and Amelia Shiery. The Linderman family claims kinship with the Daniel Boone family through Florence's grandmother, a claim documented in this collection. The papers have information on the Shiery, Knittle and Linderman families. Florence's father, Daniel B. Linderman married Amelia Shiery on January 29, 1891. He earned a teacher's certificate in 1887 and at the time of his marriage Linderman apparently was teaching at Keystone State Normal School in Kutztown, now known as Kutztown University. The Linderman family moved to Arizona in 1903 where Mr. Linderman taught on the Maricopa Indian Reservation for several years. Numerous photographs of Florence with her father and correspondence between father and daughter are present. Florence graduated with a teaching certificate from the State Normal School in 1911 and later she received a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Redlands, California in 1915. Florence eventually became a registered nurse, working in California where the Linderman family moved prior to World War II. During the 1930s Florence Linderman served as a nurse in the United States Navy. The Papers were acquired by the Pennsylvania State Archives from the Linderman estate in Santa Barbara, California in 1981.
