Photograph, taken on Tuesday, February 7, 1928, showing Mrs. V. A. Manning and her son, veteran Cyril G. Manning, at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new veterans hospital on Marquam Hill in Portland. Cyril Manning, who performed the groundbreaking, has one arm around his mother’s shoulders and is holding the handle of the shovel in his other hand. A cropped version of this photograph was one of three that were published on Page 6 of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, February 8, 1928, under the headline “Break Ground for Veterans’ Hospital.” This photograph had the following caption: “Manning and his mother, Mrs. V. A. Manning, watching ceremonies incident to ground breaking.” The photographs accompanied a story headlined “Disabled Veteran Turns First Earth on Site of Jackson Park Hospital.” The story reported that Manning’s hip had been shattered by gunfire during World War I, and that his older brother had been killed in the war. The story also reported that the land for the hospital “was donated to the state of Oregon for the University of Oregon medical school by Mrs. C. S. Jackson and Philip L. Jackson as a memorial to the late publisher of The Journal. From the area, 25 acres were donated to the government by the regents of the medical school.” See related image Nos. 371N3011, 371N3012, 371N3013, 371N3014, and 371N3015.
