I’m thrilled to announce the much delayed arrival of my new blog, Chicago Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium Remembered. The poor child is not quite standing on its own feet yet, but eventually I hope to report on the history, the built environment and the people who passed through this important public health facility.
The posts I originally wrote about the MTS on Me & My Shadow will stay here, because they are part of my Chicago experience. As more information about the MTS became available to me, and my interest in researching it grew, I felt that the subject was too large, too important, and too moving to play a side role in this blog. I’m hoping that giving the baby blog its own home will attract more readers with stories about the MTS.
So, when you have a chance, visit the new baby and let me know what you think.
