I was at the Children's Hospital in my early years. I started around 1937 and stayed until 1941 for my first session. I was released for two years and was sent for to continue surgery and treatment for another three years from 1943 through 1946. I think that they had at that time discovered the sulfa drugs and penicillin during the war and now there was hope to cure my infections and bone disease.
I am now 78 years old and still doing business as a luthier/classical guitar maker. I had many opportunities to visit the hospital and my school teachers, Miss Klienbauer and Miss Dohner. I had actually sponsored a concert for the children in 1970 with a great guitarist who was on a concert tour around the U.S.
