Re: [CA] Los Angeles black newspaper

Dear vkn,

Which i am assuming is not your name, but thank you so much for looking up the West Adams Hospital for me. I am sooooo grateful, and excited, I cannot tell you and if I babble and overload you here with what I've been looking for, please forgive me, and ignore the overload and take care of yourself.

It's just, I have not yet figured out a way to access the Sentinel long distance. I have the date for an obituary of a Dr. George Jackson, (somewhere on my desk, and planned to get files TODAY to organize it but it's 35 below and with the baby, I think i will not go out) I think it's not this same Dr. George Jackson who built the hospital, but another middle initial, and I hoped to look for information on the other doctors listed and for an obit for a Herman and Gerthe Jackson and also to see if there is mention of a Queen Bee or Bea. She ran a group home for girls in our house or the house next to us during the 1970's and 1980's, so I have heard. People loved her.

I also wanted to look up Negroes for Nixon and find out the Sentinels take on that, as well as Donald Bohana, who was the hospital administrator when it opened, and to find out why the West Adams hospital went bankrupt just a few years after it opened (opened 1971, closed 1978)--was this because of general problems among hospitals of that time, etc.

Also to see if there is mention through the 1980's and 1990's of people losing their homes through that federal crack cocaine law that allowed the Feds to take over a property if someone was convicted of using cocaine there, even if it was not the owner and the owner was unaware of what was going on.

Dang, I'm an idiot to be doing this AFTER we moved. But I thank you for your help, thank you so much, so much.
