Throwback Thursday: Baby New Year, Jan. 1, 1960

By Kristy Bleizeffer one week ago

Who was the first baby born at Natrona County Memorial Hospital 60 years ago?

According to the Casper Star, it was Mary Lynn Sullivan who was born at 12:40 a.m. Jan. 1, 1960. 

The cutline of this newspaper photo, found in the WMC scrapbook at the Casper College Western History Center, suggests that Sullivan would have been given "a host of gifts from local merchants." 

We'd love to know what those gifts were, and where Mary Lynn might be today. 

On behalf of everyone at Wyoming Medical Center, and from all our New Year's baby's past and future, have a happy and healthy 2020!
