One response to “Emile Herman Grubbe 1875 – 1960”

    Hello, A friend of mine shared this article witrh me. We are looking for a Cousin, E. Irene Knowlton. Known to have been in chicago around 1903. E. Irene Knowlton & an O. S. Smith are mentioned at the end of this article printed in 1890. . One branch of our family recalls Irenewas a Dr. working as a nurse. This shows that there is a medical link for Irene Knowlton.
    So, I am wondering if there is any chance that records still exist for Hahnemann Hospital to see if our Irene Knowlton worked there?
    Thanks so much.

    At the botton of this article, it states the information was reported by a Mr. O. S. Smith and a Miss E. Irene Knowton. So this would confirm she did indead work in the medical field in Chicago in 1890 as from when this article was from, but it doesn’t give her credit of a title of Dr. So she may not have been, but maybe helped in the field of medicine.
