Re: “'Every day was a Tuesday'

My father was a patient here 1955-1956. Apparently he had TB and every 6 months my brothers and I were tested and always came back negative. We were from a small town in eastern Arkansas and it was quite a shock going from the Delta to the hilly area of Booneville. In the summer of 1956 our father was discharged and we moved back to eastern Arkansas. We discovered sometime later that he never had TB but instead had histoplasmosis.
