Biographical / Historical

Mrs. Shuman was the wife of Adolph L. Shuman, the advertising director for the Fort Worth Star Telegram. She was born Florence Griswold of Sullivan, Missouri, and came to Fort Worth with her husband in 1904. The Shumans were well known for their civic activities in Fort Worth. She was an early member of the Woman's Club. It was probably in her capacity as member of the Harmony Club, the woman's group devoted to bringing fine music to the community, that she received these photographs. Mrs. Shuman passed away in 1960.
