Lottie Blake / Medicine

After completing high school in 1894 Blake pursued a teacher’s course, completing this training in 1896.  It was in this same year that she became a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  It was her zeal to become a missionary nurse that led her to the famous Battle Creek Sanitarium, where the noted physician, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg operated.  Her first missionary field led her to the South where she labored as director of the Rock City Sanitarium at Nashville, Tennessee.  It was during this period that frequent trips were made to Huntsville Oakwood Manual Training School, now Oakwood University, to serve where she was needed.
