The Houston Post article on Sugar Land published in March, 1952 included a photo of Miss Nema Shepherd. (Recall the earlier entry showing Drs. Jenkins, Slaughter & Wheeler on the steps of the clinic.) Anyone who knew Miss Nema knows The Post had to include her picture in the article. She ran the hospital with a very firm hand - so I'm told. (I wonder why she was called Miss Nema although she was married to Bob Shepherd.)
People always remember men, like Gus Ulrich, W. E. White & Jim Guyer, who were masters of their domains, but Sugar Land also had women, like Mrs. Iiams & Miss Nema, who were mistresses of theirs.
