A picnic for auxiliaries of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society (JCRS) that was held in the yard of Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Sharoff during the 1950 conference in Denver, Colorado. Dr. William Kline stands second from right in the back row. The JCRS was a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients that was founded in 1904 by a group of immigrant Jewish workingmen along with the support of several leading physicians and rabbis in Denver, Colorado. The sanatorium was located on West Colfax Avenue just outside of Denver. In the 1950s, the institution reincorporated as the American Medical Center and became one of the first dedicated cancer institutions in the nation.
