Scope and Content

Collection consists of one contract authorizing J. P. Stephenson to construct a sewer trunk line to City of Dallas and Dallas County jointly-owned Union Hospital and Woodlawn Hospital. Union Hospital was opened in 1907 and was commonly referred to as the Pesthouse on account of its use for treating smallpox and other contagious diseases. Woodlawn Hospital, for tubercular patients, had its origin in the Tubercular Sanitarium built by the city and county at Record Crossing in 1913.  J. P. Stephenson was superintendent over the city-county hospital system that includes what is now Parkland Health & Hospital System.
