n 1932, Dr. Henry Keller, an
American orthopedist, and
great uncle of Paula Glazier of
Bloomfield Hills, retired to
pre-Israel Palestine. Any thoughts of
retirement, however, were dashed
when he discovered the shocking
lack of facilities for physically handi-

non-denominational, serving Jewish,
Christian and Arab children."
Besides the hospital's regular work
serving children with physical dis-
abilities ranging from cerebral palsy
to congenital deformities, Alyn has
