Dennis Minder with Measles, May 8, 1958

Dennis Mindler with Measles, 1958.

A lot of visitors were coming to see Don and Bernadine Minder, 1037 E. Front St., Bloomington, in early May 1958 because they just had a baby. The problem was their six-year-old son Dennis had come down with the measles!
Caroline Minder placed this sign at the front door to give visitors an appropriate warning, though by the time this photo was taken Dennis was on the mend.
