Home in Florida for St. Louisans
April 10, 1958
By Margaret Allen Ruhl
Mr. and Mrs. L. Matthews Werner became the owners earlier this week of a home in the Coconut Grove section of Miami, Fla., to which they will move in a little more than a year. Their home here at 5515 Cates avenue, where they have lived for many years, is to be disposed of. They will continue, however, to own and operate Camp Ironwood for boys and girls at Harrison, Me., and will divide their time between Maine and Florida. They have just published the thirty-fifth edition of the Oak Leaf, the camp magazine.
Sebago Club here, which the Werners also own and which is said to be the oldest day camp in the United States, will be closed after next year.
The Werners’ two sons both live elsewhere. Marlin Werner, who holds a master’s degree from John Hopkins University, is working in the field of speech and audiometry at Columbia, Mo. Meade Werner is an instructor at Johns Hopkins studying for his master’s in engineering.
The Werners’ Florida house is a two-level structure to which they hope to add a roof garden.
