– S. Nielsen,
 Frederica was born in 1856 in rural Connecticut. She initially trained to be a teacher and taught high-school in Chester, Pennsylvania for many years. She came across homeopathy and studied medicine, graduating from the University of Missouri. She continued her studies under Kent and was one of his greatest followers. She helped him in putting part of his repertory together and corrected some mistakes in earlier editions.
 She was one of the first students to graduate from the Philadelphia Post-Graduate School of Homeopathy and served at the school as Clinician, Professor of Children’s Diseases and Professor of Repertory. She taught from 1933 until her health failed. She also taught Pierre Schmidt how to use the repertory.
 She was handicapped by extreme deafness but this did not stop her. H. A. Roberts writes, “characteristic of her interest in homeopathy and her determination to let pass no opportunity for furthering the cause she loved, she picked up a penny [she found outside of her classroom] with the remark that she was going to potentize it for the students of homeopathy. Through her manipulations of that one cent, and seeking contributions towards that end …she was able to create a loan scholarship fund of about $800 for the use of the students. This was to a large extent done by the odd change in the pocketbooks of her own patients.”
 She was very actively involved in homeopathy until the end of her life. Her accomplishments include being one of the founders of the American Foundation of Homeopathy and a Trustee of that foundation. She was a frequent contributor of articles, many of which are printed in the Homeopathic Recorder. In this journal, she was one of the doctors who answered questions posed by other doctors. Her feistiness and humor shine through in her responses, some of which are quoted here. She died on May 7, 1931.
