I James p smith,jean smith and William smith were in the home about 1955,1956 when we left.I was about 10 years old jean about 7 years and my younger brother about 4. We remember Mrs Budd , a guy who we called Willie and a nice lady named Florence the cook.we all three are alive and made it back to our Mother Dorothy who worked in Hyde Park in Chicago. I live in Oklahoma , my sister in Indiana and brother in Rockford Illinois. If you want more details on the Home , which is gone , write the Chicago Historical Society . I have articles from the Chicago Tribune with March dates of the 17 , 29 1962, where it was told to close due to poor care of the approximate 40 children .I remember a family of three named , last VanHook. Send me your memories ,James a survivor!
