War Mother's National Memorial Hospital of Tuberculosis - Trost Society

War Mother’s National Memorial Hospital of Tuberculosis

Quoting researchers Lloyd C. and June F. Engelbrecht:Trost & Trost drew a perspective sketch in 1922 which was used in a fund raising prospectus. The proposal was to have the American Legion posts in each state raise the money to erect one building (although there were more than 48 buildings in the plan). The hospital was to care for mothers of men who had served overseas. This ambitious and bizarre plan (a cross is associated with death) was probably a proposal for what is now the Veterans Administration hospital. The latter was carried out from plans of Guy A. Carlander.”
