75 Years Ago

* New X-ray equipment has been installed at the Annapolis Emergency Hospital through the efforts of Chief of Staff Dr. Purvis. It has been long needed. -- The Sun, Sept. 5, 1919.

* Because of a shortage of teachers, three public schools in Anne Arundel County did not re-open yesterday along with all the others. Those schools are at Harwood, Leon and Rook Point, all a considerable distance from Annapolis. -- The Sun, Sept. 9, 1919.

* D. C. McAleer was awarded a contract for $30,975 to build a mile of road between Light Street near Glen Burnie toward Clerk's Station. A few years ago, road contractors were awarded at prices ranging from $10,000 to $12,000 per mile -- an example of the rising cost of road building. -- The Sun, Sept. 23, 1919.
