A previous Memories article on the Pine Breeze Sanatorium
(http://www.chattanoogan.com/articles/article_10124.asp) continues to generate e-mails from readers.
Several have recalled either being a tuberculosis patient at Pine Breeze, or related the story of a family member.
A reader is attempting to find information on a grandmother who may have died at Pine Breeze in 1925 or 1926. He wonders whatever happened to the patient records of Pine Breeze.
I would like to know the answer to this, too, since my paternal grandfather was treated there for tuberculosis. According to my aunt, he also received an experimental treatment that was reported in the local newspapers. My grandfather eventually recovered from tuberculosis, but passed away before I was born.
If you know what happened to the patient information from Pine Breeze, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As soon as the answer is determined, I will update this article with the contact information.
