We are looking for information about a head injury that occurred in 1934 or 1936. Mother has a silverplate in her head that was put there to repair a fracture skull. According to her neurosurgeon this procedure was unheard of in mid 1930's. He thinks she may have been the first or at least one of the first to have this procedure done in the south. Any info would be greatly appreciated. thanks, BJ
