A look back

 

The late Jeanne Ward Bone, a key leader of the Menlo Park Historical Association for more than three decades, was the first of 700 civilian employees at Dibble General Hospital in Menlo Park when it was built in 1943, according to the Menlo Park history book "Beyond the Gate," by Michael Svanevik and Shirley Burgett.

Ms. Bone is shown here with Lt. Col. T.W.E. (Tom) Christmas, Dibble's executive officer, and area engineer Capt. Miner.

Ms. Bone served as a secretary at the military hospital.
