Letter From Coal Company to District 2 Union President
the Financial Upkeep of Doctors' Offices, 1936

Medical care was very important to the mine workers and complaints about it were frequently brought to the attention of the union. 

The Coal Company provided the miners and their families with a town doctor and provided the doctor with a home/office. In this document, the vice-president of the Coal Company outlines how much was spent on the upkeep of doctors' offices in several company towns including McIntyre.
