“Detroit has in these buildings something that no other city can boast of, a municipal sanatorium for tubercular adults, a permanent unit for tubercular children and a summer camp for children exposed to and in the incipient stages of the disease,” Mr. Maybury said. “The main buildings will open Jan. 1 and in looking back over the period of construction, I believe the success of what we have accomplished is due to the co-operation of the board of health and the people of Detroit with those directing the work of construction. I have been more or less interested in municipal activities for between 35 and 40 years and I have never known a group of men to give such encouraging support to an undertaking as the members of the board of health have given in this work. It was also encouraging to know that the people of Detroit approved of our policy as evidenced by the fact that when the bond issue for this institution came to ballot, it was passed by an overwhelming generosity, but we have made every effort to show how we appreciate that generosity by saving as much as possible.
