Identifier: B089.12.0019.0016.00003


John Kirkland throws frisbees at a benefit for the National Asthma Center. The event was called the Great KIMN Funky Frisbee Fly-In and was held at Denver Public Schools Stadium, 1450 S. Franklin Street, Denver, Colorado. The National Asthma Center's history began in 1907, which was a refuge for lower-income children whose parents were being treated for tuberculosis, or had passed away from tuberculosis. In 1928 the institution changed names to the National Home for Jewish Children in Denver. In 1953, the name changed to the Jewish National Home for Asthmatic Children at Denver and the institution became a treatment center for children with asthma. In 1957, the name changed again, to the Children's Asthma Research Institute and Hospital (CARIH). In 1973, the name National Asthma Center was adopted and in 1978 the National Asthma Center merged with the National Jewish Health Hospital and Research Center to become the National Jewish Health Hospital / National Asthma Center (NJH/NAC).
