Chapter 1: The “Most Useful Citizen”: Recovering the Life and Establishing the Legacy of Attorney Homer G. Phillips (1878-1937)

This chapter chronicles the life of Attorney Homer G. Phillips (c.1880-1931), the attorney for whom the hospital was named, and the events leading to the creation of Homer G. PHillips Hospital.  Broadly, it argues that contrary to the local lore surrounding the hospital, attorney Homer G.
