The Sanatorium employed many, not just nurses, but also janitors, engineers, teamsters, a herdsman for the San Dairy, potato pickers, a gardener, laundry workers, maids, cooks, waitresses, tray girls, dishwashers, and more. Can you identify any of the nurses in this photo? Peggy Cross (Dr. Mary’s sister) is in the center, and Wilma Watts is on the right.
My parents met while working at the San. Several of our relatives were patients, employees, or both.
Did your relatives work at the San? Send me a note at Contact@OpenWindow.com. Do you have San photos to share? If so, email them along with your permission for me to use the photos and I might be able to add them to this site. Please identify as many people as you can in your photos, and if you know the year, please include it. Let’s work together to add to the history of the Lake Julia Tuberculosis Sanatorium.
