Laura E. Burr   (1824-1900)

Mrs. Laura E. Burr, whose maiden name was Laura E. Montgomery, was born near Attica, New York, February 29, 1824.  She came to Lansing Michigan, with her husband Dr. Hosea Stanton Burr in 1847.  He was stricken with a “congestive or spinal fever” the next year and died.  Shortly after, Mrs. Burr founded a young ladies’ academy in Lansing, which she conducted for several years.  Her later life was devoted to art and science.  In addition she became widely known as an artist and teacher of painting.  At various times she had art classes in Washington, Buffalo (circa 1855), Chicago, Nashville, Minneapolis, Rochester and Toledo (circa 1867 - 1868).  Her paintings attested her thorough understand of color and technique.

She continued as a resident of Lansing from 1873 until about 1895 when she moved to Portland, Oregon to the home of her niece, Mrs. S.H. Giesy.   

Mrs. Burr was a great student of science, and a lady who made few but always firm friendships.  She was a charter member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the Michigan Academy of Science, being elected in 1898.  She also held a membership in the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society.

Biographical information excerpted from her obituary:  The State Republican, Lansing, Michigan, Friday evening, May 18, 1900.
