February 14, 1895: Opening of Chicago Lying-in Hospital Dispensary

Submitted by Susan Sacharski, Archivist, Northwestern Memorial Hospital Archives:

On Valentine’s Day, 1895, the Chicago Lying-in Hospital Dispensary was opened by Joseph B. DeLee, MD, the beginning of what would become an important chapter in the history of medicine in Chicago. I’ve put together a few documents detailing the humble beginnings of the Maxwell Street Dispensary of the Chicago Maternity Center.
