I am new to your list and am in need of some help hopefully. I am trying
to find out if there is any information on Oakdale Sanitarium. Am told that
it was located just out side of Iowa City but nothing can be found.
I went to the Iowa University web site and checked out everything but
could not find any reference to the history of the University or the
sanitarium. Was suggested that it might be connected to the University.
I do see an Oakdale, Iowa just north of Iowa City and am wondering if by
chance it could be located there. Can anyone shed some light on this? The
time frame was around 1925 and it was my paternal grandmother that was there.
She died very young at the age of thirty.
In advance let me say thanks to anyone that might be of help in finding
this institution. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
