Home sought for vintage medical gear

    20141219-9077 CTY LAU Dr. H. Lorrin Lau was a 9 year old child at the time of the Dec. 7th attack on Pearl Harbor and saw body parts, amputated legs and arms and other grisly things at a hospital as a lad (he had a kiawe throne that penetrated to the bone of his foot). Lorrin is showing a lot of old medical equipment and manuscripts (at his son, David Lau’s home in Kaimuki) that Dr. J. Howard Branan left to Lau’s family to take care of. Branan was the one who founded and designed the Aiea Hospital, the only hospital near the area of the attack where wounded were attended to. This is Dr. H. Lorrin Lau's wife, Maureen Lau holding one of the old medical supplies that were uncovered. PHOTO BY DENNIS ODA. DEC. 19, 2014.
