Dr. Thoman Unthank
An African American Physician
Convention Hall, a hospital in Kansess, was split into sections, with one section being for minorities. Unthank did some work there, treating he’s community. He then went on a crusade to have a hospital for minorities, which many of the white Physicians and city leaders did not pay him much notice. Eventually Unthank persuaded the city to allow the old General Hospital to become the “colored division” when white patients were moved to a new, modern facility in 1908.
He was clearly a man who worked for he’s community, never giving up on he’s idea to help those who were sick but were not given a fair amount of attention based on where they came from.
