This Day In History: 1940-02-16
In the midst of the worst storm in many years word reached Dr. F. J. Liddy that Mrs. Richard West, who lived near the top of the Houvenkopf mountain, was about to produce her sixth child. Dr. Liddy, accompanied by Police Chief Charles E. Smith left their car on Route Two and walked up the mountain road to the West Home. At times the drifts were more than hip deep on their one mile walk. They arrived in time to assist in the birth of a healthy baby girl.
