[Mrs. Esmond G. Cherryman]
MYRTLE KOON CHERRYMAN was born in Lisbon, a nearby village which immediately faded off the map when she left. Her father was a country doctor and taught her her first lessons as they drove about the country in the proverbial "horse and buggy". Her mother was interested in the drama and starred her daughter in all the village entertainments. One of her first appearances was as "Mary" in "Ten Nights in a Bar-room", presented in GRANDFATHER CHUBB'S Hotel.
After graduation from Edna Chaffee Noble's School of Elocution in Detroit, Mrs. Cherryman returned to Grand Rapids and taught elocution. For several years she was with a local paper as society and music editor and wrote a daily column "In a Cheery Mood"… Go to person page >
