Nellie Wadleigh of Portland, center, visited her son, Merle, at the Western Maine Sanatorium in Hebron on Nov. 10, 1929.

At left is Merle Wadleigh's sister, Manola Wadleigh Burns.

Wadleigh looks quite healthy and this photo might have been taken near the end of his stay at the facility.

His treatment probably was successful as he lived until 1990, when he was 86.
