More People of Old Sugar Land Featuring Dr. Carlos Slaughter

I want to thank Janice Hrncir for the following photographs of Carlos & Vera Slaughter.  Her mother was Iris Hrncir, long-time nurse for Dr. Slaughter.  Iris inherited various pieces of memorabilia from the doctor's estate when he died in the early 1980s.  She is now decease, so Janice and her sisters are donating several items to the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation.  At some point these items will be on display in the Museum, so come down and take a look -- I'll give you an alert.  Until then, I'll select a few items to post on this blog along with more lore about Dr. Slaughter.
