Leta Mae Brown Biography, was born in Parker, Linn County, Kansas, but spent most of her school days in Kansas City. She received her nurse’s training at the Christian Church Hospital Training School in Kansas City, Missouri, and later spent two years in special training at the College of Missions. She came to India in 1912, where after a year spent in special study of the language she assisted a doctor in the medical work at a hospital in Bilaspur.
Fondly called as Miss. Brownie, she became a pioneer for nurses’ training in India which was then a new idea and wasn’t an easy undertaking. She was put in-charge of the training school for Indian nurses which was an untried and difficult work, yet she beautifully and diligently carried out her tasks as if working for the Lord.
She spent much of her time in India assisting doctors in their medical work. The missionary nurse was also blessed with the ability of diagnosing and treating diseases which helped her to carry on work even when a doctor was not available.
