Memories and Stories

614 Portland was the home of the American Lung Association. I worked there for a few years. I believe it was about 1980. There were a few small offices on the main floor. Those of us who worked with the mail first worked in the basement, part of which had been a swimming pool. We later moved to larger quarters on the main floor. Prior to the ALA, I recall that people could have Tuberculosis testing done there, and whatever follow-up was needed. The entrance to that clinic was on Dale Street and Portland, down a short stairway.
