Re: “'Every day was a Tuesday'

I am a graduate of the Ar State Tuberculosis Sanitorium, having been sent there instead of Business College at the age of eighteen and just graduated from High School.

Inituality it was a shocking experience.

Looking back I must think of it as the best of all educations.

True, there were many deaths but it also a story of survivors. The story of dedicated doctors and staff. I am only sorry I've forgotten so many names that go with so many faces of good people that made a difference in my life.

The Sanitorium holds a history of Tuberculosis treatment and how far it has come. Today, she continues as a health facility, still serving those less fortunate than we are.

Long live her glory!!!
