70 years ago today - Mar 2, 1952

David O. McKay dedicates the church's new Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, with half of its cost raised in a "penny drive" by children. It began in 1922 as a remodeled residence. After the Primary Hospital moves near University of Utah, the penny-built hospital is sold to developers in 1995 to be razed so the land can be used for condominiums.
