Biography

Cora was born in 1884. Cora was the child of Robert J Whitmire and Maggie Smith. Cora passed away in 1961.

On March 19, 1904, Miss Cora Whitmire delivers a talk entitled "Education" at the Teacher's local institute, where she is a teacher. According the 1895 History of Butler Co, regarding the Institute: "The Butler County Teachers' Institute was organized November 19, 1855, with Isaac BLACK, county superintendent, president; A. J. REBSTOCK and Matthew GREER, vice-presidents; Thomas BALPH, recorder; Jacob P. MYERS, treasurer; Isaac BLACK, S. P. IRVIN, Mary MCTAGGART, M. Louisa BUTLER and Emma PROSSER, executive committee. The school books recommended were MCGUFFEY'S pictorial primer, spelling-book, first, second, third, fourth and fifth readers; RAY'S mathematics, MCNALLY'S geography, and PINEO'S series of grammars. Early in 1856 meetings were held to abolish the office of county superintendent, but the teachers and friends of the office were better organized than the opponents and the question was [p. 189] defeated by a small majority. Every year since the organization, teachers' institutes have been held with more or less success. The thirty-ninth annual session held at Butler, December 18-22, 1893, was attended by 286 teachers. S. F. BOWSER was re-elected president; Elliott ROBB, vice-president, and W. P. JAMISON, secretary. The Institute proves, by its popularity, that it holds the key to practical information for all interested in the common school system of the State."
