May 28, 1932 - Moved back into the dining room today. Cleaned up the house. Went to the dance at Carroll with Ray tonite. Stopped in and talked to Mrs. Smith a few minutes. A large crowd at the dance, had a pretty good time.
May 29, 1932 - To S.S. and church this a.m. Read and slept this p.m. Mom went with the RNA for their Memorial Services this p.m. Went out to Ola's about 6 o'clock. Had supper. A.W. came out after me and we went to Norfolk. Saw a gangster picture at a new theater on the south side of the street. Uncle Hans and the rest came from Rochester this a.m. at 5:30.
May 30, 1932 - Went out to the cemetery this a.m. To the park this p.m. for the services. Saw Lydia and talked to her awhile. After the services Annie, Ola and kids, Aunt Lena, Uncle Hans, Meta, Lyle and Martha were up here for lunch. Aunt Lena is getting along fine, so the M.D.s say, that's why she didn't have to stay in Rochester for about a month as she thought she would have to do. Raymond Wittler's birthday.
I was a little disappointed to not find any information on the Mayo Clinic that was especially interesting or particularly blog-worthy. Which isn't to say they do not do marvelous work there. I did think the statue of the Mayo brothers was a bit unusual but very nice.
Here is the first paragraph of the wikipedia article about the Mayo Clinic:
Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit medical practice and medical research group based in Rochester, Minnesota. It is the first and largest integrated nonprofit medical group practice in the world, employing more than 3,800 physicians and scientists and 50,900 allied health staff. The practice specializes in treating difficult cases through tertiary care. It spends over $500 million a year on research. In 2014, Mayo Clinic marks 150 years of continuous service to patients.
Dr. William Worrall Mayo settled his family in Rochester, Minn., in 1864 and opened a medical practice that evolved under his sons into Mayo Clinic. Mayo Clinic ranked No. 1 on the 2014-2015 U.S. News & World Report List of "Best Hospitals", and has been near the top for more than 20 years, and it is widely regarded as one of the world's premier medical practices. The practice is distinguished by integrated care. It has been on the list of America's "100 Best Companies to Work For" published by Fortune magazine for eight years in a row.
