If you live in Maryland or have ties to the Army there's a good chance you've heard of Fort Detrick (United States Army Medical Command Center). The location is a hop, skip, and jump from this home...
|Medical/Medicine/Pharmacy Balance Scale|
|The box was filled with all sorts of items...|
|Items found inside the box...|
It didn't dawn on me to who it might belong to until I looked into some names from the "folder" that was found in the kitchen cabinet. You can read that post here.
|Inside of folder that was found inside a kitchen cabinet....|
One name inside the folder may be the clue to the "who" the medical/medicine/pharmacy scale belonged to...
|Marian Douglas Detrick....|
Fort Detrick, the United States Army Medical Command Center in our area was named after Frederick Louis Detrick. This was a great find!
I see on record that Frederick L. Detrick passed in April, 1931. If this is correct and Marian D. Detrick purchased this home in 1933, then she purchased the home after her husband's passing.
I have some homework to do, but will keep you updated!
