Re: TB Sanitarium - Sanator SD - 1919

Here's what I have found out so far. The present name of the facility is Star Academy - it houses delinquent boys and girls from SD. I placed a call to their Operations Director, but she has yet to return my call. Secondly, I called the SD State Archives in Pierre, SD (605-773-3804). A nice gentleman there says they should have records from the facility that are over 50 years old and that these records can be researched - cost, $21.50/hr, or for the cost of copies if you do the research yourself at their building in Pierre. He says the SD Dept. of Corrections or SD Human Resources probably has any records newer than 50 years but those would no be researchable anyway. He also looked up and there was a newsletter published by the patients of Sanator called 'Sankota'. His records show the SD State Archives has the only copy of these - there are 23 volumes. I will call the Custer Library today and see if they have anything - they are closed on Wednesdays!!
