Laban Trout Bremerman, M. D.
Laban Trout Bremerman, M. I)., graduate of the Public Schools, Washington, D. C., George Washington University, Washington, D. C., A. B. 1871, Ibid., A. M. 1874, Ibid., M. D. 1874.
The late President of our School Board was born in Baltimore, Md., October 25, 1849, and died in Downingtown, Pa., March 31, 1922. He was awarded a gold medal by his Alma Mater, as first prize in Latin, and a second gold medal, as first prize in general scholarship. In addition to his twenty-seven years’ of service as school director, he had been honored by being elected frequently as President of the Chester County School Directors’ Association and as Chief Burgess of the Borough of Downingtown.
Dr. Bremerman will be remembered as a staunch friend of the public schools, as a scholarly gentleman, and as a most excellent citizen. He was elected on Monday evening, December 5, 1921, for the twenty-fifth consecutive time as president of the Downingtown School Board. The high school
building in the West W'ard and the plans for the new $100,000 building in the East Ward are material monuments to his services and to his honor.
His daily program provided for a visit to the local schools and an evening ’phone conversation with the Supervising Principal concerning the progress and welfare of the teachers and pupils.
Tbe doctor had a deep sense of humor and was a great lover of good stories. He was a member of Hiram Lodge, No. 10, Free and Accepted Masons, Washington, D. C. In his love for Downingtown and her people, the Doctor was surpassed by no one, and the void caused by his passing on will probably never be filled. His courtly and congenial manners, his courage and fidelity to his duties, his ever ready hand and encouraging word to the deserving and to the needy will be a perpetual aspiration to all those who came into close and intimate contact with our noble and lamented friend, whose philosophy of life is so well expressed in the following poem:
