In 1953 I was hired to work for an aircraft company

In 1953 I was hired to work for an aircraft company. The hiring process involved a complete physical examination, including X-rays, at the employer's facilities. Several weeks after I had started work, I was called into the medical department, where the company doctor informed me that my X-rays revealed a small spot on my lung. Since this could possibly indicate tuberculosis, a communicable disease, he was obliged by law to report his findings to the county health department. My employment at the company was put on "temporary hold."

Very shortly after this, the health department scheduled me for tests. X-rays once again showed the small spot. In addition, more tests revealed that I was positive for tuberculosis, and arrangements were made for me to be admitted into a large tuberculosis sanitarium.

I was quite upset, and my husband and I both wanted further confirmation of these findings. My husband's brother-in-law was a medical doctor in another community, so during the period when we were waiting for my admittance to the sanitarium, we visited him. He and several doctors associated with him conducted the same tests, and the same condition was confirmed.
