ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - We went to Jefferson City with a community activist who learned the MO Secretary of State holds records regarding old Homer G. Phillips hospital.  Paul Berry III became interested in the story after seeing the reunion of Zella Jackson Price and her daughter Melanie Diane Gilmore.  Jackson Price said hospital staff said her daughter had died after birth in 1965.

Berry said, "We`ve had several victims come forward, but what we haven`t had is staff from the hospital."

Since Jackson Price`s story made national news, dozens of other mothers have come forward wondering about their babies.

Only on Fox 2, you heard the story of Marnita McGill, who has court documented evidence she was stolen from her birth mother.  McGill hired attorney Donna Clark Frayne to find more answers.

Frayne said McGill`s court documented evidence, which is from a 1993 civil case about an inheritance, ' proof.  As much as we could have at this point.'

Frayne is pushing the city to find old Homer G. Phillips records that might identify who may have forged an adoption consent form.  She also hopes records will reveal where McGill went for 45 days, as the court record reflects, before she was secretly taken by another family.

Activist Berry hopes these records in Jefferson City could lead to a former Homer G. Phillips employee coming forward.  He said, 'What we`re looking for is an older person who wants to give truth to mothers in St. Louis. '

The list of doctors is not specific as to who may have worked in labor and delivery. Berry says he`s going to compile the doctor`s names with the help of RMRI private investigations.

Berry added, 'I plan on contacting each one of them that`s alive, one by one, to see if they want to give us assistance.'

The list shows doctors who obtained temporary licenses for residencies at Homer G. Phillips.  Many are from overseas.   A few went on to get their permanent licenses.  It may be a beginning for women trying to connect the dots and remember who their doctor might have been.

List of doctors

This is a list of Doctor's issued temporary medical licenses to work at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in the 60's.  The list was compiled and is currently kept in the Missouri Secretary of State's Office in Jefferson City.  The list is not specific to who may have worked in labor and delivery.  This is meant for educational purposes only, for people who may be trying to remember who treated them at Homer G. Phillips hospital decades ago.  You'll see four collumns which include the Doctor's name, the hospital where they worked as a resident physician, their origin university and the date in which they obtained their temporary medical license.
