From the diary of Arthur Allen Moore Jr -- dated Tuesday, March 4, 1947
A day that was quite lengthy. Connie started having labor pains just after midnight. Around 2:00 am, I went
downstairs to get Mrs. Schlund (Landlord and family friend) to take Connie out to the hospital (Cottage
Hospital) in Oildale California... (North Bakersfield, CA). Got out to the Oildale hospital around 3:10 am.
Nothing was expected until later on, so I came back home with Mrs. Schlund and went to bed and slept until
7:00 am. Called the hospital at 8:30 am and again at 11:30 am, but still nothing. At 12:50 pm the hospital
called Mrs. Schlund took me out to Oildale.
There at 1:00 pm. An anxious waiting period, when Dr. Wendell Hendricks came out at 1:35 pm to tell me
the good news. A 7 pound 3 ounce baby boy, born at 1:02 pm. Naming him Arthur Allen Moore III. Got to
spend a few minutes with Connie, but didn't get to see our new son. Came home and called friends, Ellen
Hamilton, Irine Webb, Irene Moore, Dorthy Durby. Called Pauline (Connie's sister) in Hanford. Went to see
Connie at night, and getting to see our new son at 7:45 pm for the first time. Called my sister, Jeanne, in
Oklahoma City, Okla., after I got home from the hospital.
