ORUM - Julia A., daughter of Charles L. and Keturah Orum, was born October 28, 1843, and died January 6, 1904. At the time of her birth her parents were members of Union Methodist Episcopal Church, Fourth and Arch Streets, Philadelphia. From 1854 to 1861 they were members of Haines Street, Germantown, where Julia was converted, and of which church she was for many years a member. She graduated from the Girls' Normal School, Philadelphia, at the head of her class, in 1864. She taught a number of years in the Philadelphia public schools. She commenced teaching elocution in 1875 to private classes. She established the Philadelphia School of Elocution in 1885. In 1890 she had charge of the Department of Voice Training in the Mountain Lake Park Chautauqua Summer School. She was also teacher of voice training in the Woman's College, Baltimore, Md., which position she gave up because it interfered with her home classes. For years she was the instructor of voice training at the Young Men's Christian Association of Germantown. She studied under the veteran tragedian, James B. ROBERTS, for a number of years. She was an intelligent and consistent Christian, and used her profession as an elocutionist in imparting instruction to clergymen, because she believed that in so doing she was giving practical aid and equipment for the better prosecution of their work. Many young preachers, especially in the Philadelphia and New Jersey Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church, availed themselves of her services, which were practically gratuitous. She was the author of many newspaper and magazine articles. Her book, "The Orum System of Voice Education," was published in 1893. It was a valuable contribution to the literature on that subject. Her health failed about three years ago, and her life, though abruptly terminated, was nevertheless a well-rounded out and successful literary and religious career. John D. FOX. The Christian Advocate - Thursday, March 31, 1904, Page 527.
