Lo! in that house of misery
A lady with a lamp I see
Pass through the glimmering gloom,
And flit from room to room.
And slow, as in a dream of bliss,
The speechless sufferer turns to kiss
Her shadow, as it falls,
Upon the darkening walls.
As a door in heaven should be
Opened and then closed suddenly,
The vision came and went,
The light shone and was sent.
A lady with a lamp shall stand
In the great history of the land
A noble type of good
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mr. Herbert G. Fritz, Fellow ot The American College of Hospital Administration
Sitting in my room, as often, staring at the institution of which I was a
part, cmd wondering of its exciting history, a cloud came over my eyes and
a voice from nowhere began to tell me of an exciting, vivid story.
The time was May 31, l889g and the scene one of disaster, gloom, and
destruction. There was a cry of anguish, pallecl tearstained faces. A city in
the valley of the Alleghanies had been visited by the drama of death and
destruction, the great "Iohnstown Flood". Upon some faces there was written
bereavement and deprivation. Other survivors tryingly characterized patience,
fortitude and cheerful submission. Illness and accident was everywhere. Out
of the gloom came Dr. Pancoast and a chapter of the American Red Cross.
still in its youth. They immediately began the work of house-to-house visitation
and ministration to the sick and injured. As soon as possible they obtained
a few tents and erected them in the orchard of Iudge Harnilton's place on
Kernville Hill. The first patient was a 14 year old child with diphtheria, a
disease prevalent at this time. Other patients were admitted rapidly and
enlargement of facilities was deemed necessary. The tents were succeeded
by an L-shaped one story wooden building. This was occupied from Iune to
Ianuary 21 when the Red Cross withdrew and the institution was taken over
by the Cambria Co. Medical Association.
