  1. Wow now I know where Walter Memorial hospital is at. I was born there 58 yrs. ago this weekend. As is matter of fact my sister’s and brother were born there all so. It was good to here about the hospital after all these yrs and what’s going on went it. It’s a shame it couldn’t stay opened a lot more yrs it’s a land mark for me and others who were born there many yrs ago. I will keep a look out on my Tablet for my old neighborhood Humboldt park. Thanx again for that up date?

    1. Thanks for watching. I’m glad we gave some joy. There are several episodes about Humboldt Park among the total of 660.

  3. I was born there on August 31, 1976! I’m so glad to see that the building is being put to good use and not just sitting abandoned. God bless you for making this video and God bless all the staff who cared for my mom and me all those years ago.

      1. I was born at Walther Memorial in Oct 1950! And was At the OLA fire. Thanks for the memories.
        My younger siblings were born at St Ann’s hospital.

  4. I decided to get some info about the place of my birth. I was born at Walther Memorial on April 9, 1940. That was the day Germany invaded Norway. My mother told me about Norwegian nurses who were there at the time of the news of their country being invaded. I see that was very close to Norwegian American Hospital.

  5. In 1056-58 I lived at 3220 Thomas which was directly across the ally from the hospital. I once dated a nurse who was visiting from Michigan for summer studies. The park was beautiful and played baseball and basketball practically everyday. I went to Tuley High at the time. I once ran over to the ER because my baby sister had swallowed bluing used for washing clothes. She had her stomach pumped. There use to be an old concrete bicycle track on the corner of Kenzie and Augusta …. we played basketball there. Fond memories. Bob Skaleski

  6. I was born there in 1944.
