Background
Mrs. Dr. Charlotte Blake Brown, Mrs. Dr. Martha E. Bucknell, and ten San Francisco women founded Children's Hospital (then called the Pacific Dispensary for Women and Children) on February 26, 1875. From a $30-a-month group of rooms at 520 Taylor Street, the Dispensary moved six times before arriving, in 1887, at its current location at California Street near Maple.
