A story of Mayo Clinic history


A unique partnership was born in the cyclone that struck Rochester in 1883. Mother Alfred Moes and Dr. William Worrall Mayo found that they worked well together in caring for the injured survivors.

Now Mother Alfred has an idea. She wants to build a hospital …that is, if Dr. Mayo and his sons will staff it. He resists … she persists. The give and take of their conversation reveals the dynamic personalities of these two pioneers and the spirit of teamwork that distinguishes Mayo Clinic.

Adapted from an original stage play, this movie was filmed at the historic James J. Hill House in St. Paul, Minn.
