Phillips County Museum News for July 3 , 2019


Phillips County August 1921.

Under the supervision of Miss Florence Richardson, PC Nurse, 16 children received medical attention in the basement of the Library! (Yes, I did mean library).

Miss Richardson has endeavored for the past year to bring about a county clinic for children who need attention. Dr. Jones of Butte, Mont., donated his service and performed operations assisted by Dr. Blankenhorn and Red Cross nurses Mrs. Prom, Miss Peggy Dunbar, and Miss Barbara Nelson.

The smaller room in the library was used for operating room while the larger was the temporary hospital. The cots were donated by the Fifth Avenue Hotel, mattresses were furnished by the Reclamation, sheets and hot water bags were bought by the ladies, use of basins were donated by Lee Hardware, Malta Mercantile and Trafton Dorr.

Miss Robertson feels that the establishment of such a precedent in Phillips County would be a good idea. One case of tuberculosis was found among the children. The medical room in the PC Museum has many items of interest.

Stop in at the PC Museum Monday-Saturday 10-5.
