  1. In the Texas State Journal of Medicine, Volume 44, Number 3, July 1948 there is a listing for a (now) demolished house in River Oaks. Greenwood, Mrs. James R., 3394 Chevy Chase (6). 2006 view, surrounded by trees!! 2014, new mansion took its place: I would call it a McMansion, but this home in RO is anything but cheap. Love that circular pool!
  2. Does anyone remember (or have pictures) of the old Medical Arts Building downtown (circa 1929), just north of Houston Center? As I recall, it was an early Art Deco skyscraper. When I saw it in the early 80s it was filthy and neglected, but the design and detail were memorable. It can be seen in the upper part of the photo, while under demolition: Anyone have a better picture or any info? It was quite an attractive building.
  3. I never knew this hospital existed. Very cool! Dr. Greenwood's Sanitarium, Houston, Texas. For Nervous and Mental Diseases - Alcohol and Drug Addictions. All buildings new and built especially for the care and treatment of such cases. Buildings steam heated, all modern conveniences, sanitary plumbing, electric lights, hot and gold water in every room, and screened throughout. All outside rooms. Everything first-class. Personal attention given all cases. Situated South Main Street, on OakHill, the coolest part of Houston. JAS. Greenwood, M.D. Supt. - H.C. Maxwell, M.D., Ass't Physician. https://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/entries/greenwood-james-sr Greenwood, James, Sr. (1878–1949) James Greenwood, Sr., neuropsychiatrist, was born in Seguin, Texas, on April 18, 1878, the son of Judge James and Corinna (Henderson) Greenwood. He attended private schools and the John H. Bishop Academy for Young Men in Seguin. In 1901 he received his M.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. Greenwood was on the staff of the San Antonio State Hospital for Mental Diseases from 1902 to 1906, when he went into private practice in Seguin. In 1908 he returned to UTMB as instructor in pediatrics, clinical medicine, and physical diagnosis. He left Galveston in 1912 to establish the Greenwood Sanitarium for treatment of neuropsychiatric diseases in Houston. From the Houston Public Library Digital Archives: https://cdm17006.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p17006coll10/id/1707/rec/1 Description: Photograph of the front and side yards of the Greenwood Sanitarium that was located at 9218 South Main Street. Date: 1920-1939 Era: 1920; 1930
  4. Found a James Greenwood, Jr. curriculum vitae that lists his residence in River Oaks. I believe the home was demolished and a new mansion took its place. Tried searching on Google Earth but there's too many trees on the parcel to find the house. I never knew Jas. Greenwood, Jr. was included in all of the Texas Medical Center hospitals. He practically worked at every TMC hospital. Impressive resume! Although, I did notice the infamous Greenwood Sanitarium was not listed. I do know his father, James Greenwood, Sr. founded the sanitarium. I thought he worked at the sanitarium a long side his father? He was a doctor there. James Greenwood, Jr., M.

  5. I was looking in-depth at the Greenwood's Sanitarium advertisement and I noticed something interesting. For the location of the hospital, it states: South Main Street, on Oak Hill, the coolest part of Houston. What's the story on the Oak Hill part of town? This would have been in the 1910s through the 1950s. Was the neighborhood, or general area, renamed at some point? This would have been in the area of South Main and Old Spanish Trail.
  6. Today I was searching around for old hospitals and came across a very cool address! Thought I would share with HAIF. I am confused. Did the block 9200 South Main Street (or Main Street Boulevard) exist in the 1920s? I looked on a few maps of the 1920s and 1930s. One map showed South Main Street stopping at Holcombe Blvd, while Old Main Street Road was the only road going further. Other maps showed South Main Street as being a paved roadway. Which one was it?!?! The address in the thread title could be wrong. This might be 9218 South Main Street. I found the details in the publication Harris County Medical Society, Woman's Auxiliary Year Book Program dated September, 1926. Year Book Woman's Auxiliary To The Harris County Medical Society Organized April 1919 Federated State May 1919 Houston, Texas 1926-1927 The doctor's addresses contained the following: Cruse, Mrs. P.R. - 208 Sul Ross, H. 4502 Denman, Mrs. P.R. - 1220 Southmore, H. 0417 Devoti, Mrs. J.J. - Broadway and Alexander, W. 1658 Dunman, Mrs. T.E. - 711 Hawthorne, H. 1696 Durha, Mrs. M.E. - 438 W. 21st St., T. 5946 Ellis, Mrs. J.C. - 1301 Marshal, H. 3237 Elliot, Mrs. M.L. - 9218 S. Main, H. 0773 Feagin, Mrs. H.C. - 3806 Garrett, H. 0361 Flickwir, Mrs. A.C - 4316 Dallas, W. 4209 Foster, Mrs. J.B. - 2020 W. Main, W. 5799 Foster, Mrs. J.H. - 1708 River Oaks, H. 6791 8 years after, in 1934, the house was occupied by Mrs. Greenwood. Very interesting, because I think this is the source of the internet's wrong information regarding the location of Greenwood's Sanitarium which is (actually) located at 7308 Old Main Street Road. I believe, to my research, these are different families. I do know there was a James Greenwood Senior, and a James Greenwood Junior. Maybe this is the one of the wives? According to TSHA, Greenwood, James, Sr. was married to Ella Harris. Definitely not James Greenwood Senior! https://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/entries/greenwood-james-sr From the newspaper The Rice Thresher dated November 23, 1934: As the regular meeting of the E.B. L.S. Last Monday, the pledges invited all of the active members to an Open House which will be given at the home of Mary Greenwood, 9218 Main Street.
