ACROSS MY DESK: History Detective


Tonight a segment of "History Detectives" on PBS will be devoted to an adoption search:

Unwed Mothers' Home The Detective: Gwen Wright The Place: Kansas City, Missouri The Case: The only reminder one woman has of her birth parents is a medallion of the Virgin Mary that was attached to her diaper when she was presented from a home for unwed mothers to her adoptive parents. Homes for unwed mothers were a national trend from the beginning of the 20th century until the 1970s, when they fell from use.

Follow this emotional story as the History Detectives head to Missouri to help our contributor
finally find her birth parents and the home where she was adopted.

Consult your local listings for the time and channel.
