Newby, Mary Elizabeth (Marriage - 31 Dec. 1940)

The marriage of Miss Mary Elizabeth Newby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. M. Newby of 324 McHenry St., Glendale, Calif., and Adelbert Eberhardt, son of Mrs. Rose Eberhardt, Neillsville, took place at 8 p.m. Tuesday night, December 31, 1940, in the North Glendale Methodist Church. The Rev. Allen Hunter, Congregational minister of Hollywood, an intimate friend of the Newby family, officiated.

Miss Dorothy Davis, a former schoolmate of the bride, and Frank S. Newby, brother of the bride, were the attendants.

Miss Newby was born in Glendale. She is a graduate of Hoover high School, Glendale Junior College and the University of Redlands. After a year of social service work for the state of California, she studied for a term at the University of California. This semester she enrolled in the Pacific School of Religion at Berkeley.

Mr. Eberhardt was born in La Crosse. When he was a small lad he came to Neillsville with his mother, who was the matron of the Winnebago Indian School at the time of its opening. He was graduated from the Neillsville high school and from the Mission House College at Sheboygan, Wis. For two years he was a student at the Vanderbilt school of Religion at Nashville, Tenn. He taught for one year at the Indian school in Neillsville, Wis. The past summer Mr. Eberhardt worked in the Migrant Camp at Delano, Calif., and now has a scholarship at the Pacific School of Religion. These young people begin life together under most favorable circumstances, each possessing fine traits of character, ability and unlimited ambition.

Mrs. Rose Eberhardt of Neillsville was present for the wedding.

The couple will reside at Berkeley, Calif.
