We have a decade-long research project underway to document the history of KGH and other hospitals in the region. See http://kgh.knoxcotn.org/
The Knoxville General Hospital School of Nursing museum exhibit and archives would be extremely interested in adding high-resolution versions of your photos and any other stories, documents, or memorabilia you might be able to share in digital text or media format. See http://kgh.knoxcotn.org
Knoxville General Hospital had the only Contagion Unit in the region during the polio epidemic. Several nurses, students, and other staff contracted polio from exposure to patients.
I was born at the hospital in 1953. All my siblings were born at home, of course the hospital closed before I was ever old enough for a visit. There were eleven children in my family, I was the 7th son, the eleventh child.
I was born at General Hospital in 1945
According to the Knoxville Journal, a daughter was born to a Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Lee at or around March 16, 1955. Is it possible to get the mother’s and child’s name. If a picture is available, that would be so wonderful. Thank you so very much.

Is there any way to retrieve a newborn baby photo of someone born at Knoxville General? My father was born there in 1949 and I would love to have a copy of his if it exists.
