This lovely home was built in 1915 by Col. Wayland as a wedding gift for his
daughter, Katherine and her new husband, Dr. Edgar Berryman. The entire
home was furnished, top to bottom, by the groom's parents.

This is a rare photo of Dr. Berryman, with General John Pershing in the
chair. While stationed at General Pershing's headquarters at Chaumont,
France during the First World War, Dr. Berryman became Pershing's
personal dentist. On his very first visit, according to Dr. Berryman, the
General got right to the point. "Captain," he said, "I outrank you, but
from here on, I'm at your mercy." Both men laughed. Then, the General
sat down in the chair and, in Dr. Berryman's own words, "I went to work."
