The Story of the Arequipa Sanatorium, Lynn Downey

As San Francisco recovered from the 1906 earthquake and fire, dust and ash filled the city's factories, stores and classrooms, Dr. Philip King Brown noticed rising tuberculosis among the women who worked there. He knew there were few places where they could get affordable treatment. In 1911, with the help of society women and his wife, Helen, a protege of philanthropist Phoebe Apperson Hearst, Brown opened the Arequipa Sanatorium in Marin County. Together, Brown, and his all-female staff gave new life to hundreds of working-class women suffering from tuberculosis in early 20th-century California.

PLEASE RSVP: infor@marinhistory.org or 415-382-1182

Note: Free Parking at the back of the building, enter the mansion through the main front doors. Venue is to the right of the main lobby and staircase.

FREE to Elk Members, $10 for adults.
