Maud Clark Harvey 1865

 

Mrs. Maud Clark Harvey, Sunday school and missionary worker, was born in Plattsburg, New York, August 8, 1865, and is the daughter of Judge George Lafayette and J. Ann Walling Clark, and is the sister of Dr. Nathaniel Walling Dark, now the efficient superintendent of the Italian mission work of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rome, Italy. This fact may possibly serve to accentuate Mrs. Harvey's interest in foreign missions.

She was educated in the public and high schools of Plattsburg and was married to Evert Lansing Harvey, of Boonville, New York, on June 10, 1890. Coming to reside in Washington, D. C, they connected themselves with the Metropolitan Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church, of which Mr. Harvey is recording steward. They have two sons, George Lansing and Walling Evert, who are both students at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., of which institution their uncle, John Cheeseman Clark, is president of the board of trustees.

Mrs. Harvey is district secretary of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of Washington District and superintendent of the young people's work of the Baltimore Branch; she teaches a large class of young men in the Sunday school and is recording secretary of the Ladies' Association. She is a Daughter of the American Revolution and is possessed of a fine personal presence and great repose of spirit.
