My sisters and I were at IPCH in the 1940's. We left in 1948. Doesn't appear that we were there at the same time. Do you remember Tommy (Ms. Thomas) or Mom Budd? Were you aware of the infamous history of the mansion occupies by the children's home? It was the home of Richard Loeb, who, with Leopold, murdered a 14 yr. old boy in the neighborhood. It was called the crime of the century and they were defended by Clarence Darrow. We were never aware of this, since the murder took place in 1924. The mansion was razed in the 1970's.
