Leap Year Babies Regular Event With Woman
DENVER, Feb. 20. (U.P.)—On February 29, 1932, in Room 366 at St. Luke’s Hospital here, Mrs. Ralph E. Hansen, then 24 years of age, gave birth to a daughter, Marjorie May.
On February 29, 1936—today—in the same room, at the same hospital, attended by the same physician, at 9:41 am., Mrs. Hansen gave birth to a son, not yet named.
And just to make the leap year story complete, two of the attending nurses, twin sisters, were born February 29, 1916, and were celebrating their fifth birthday.
