I'm quite sure that most of you longtime Shreveport residents have some memory of the nuns at Schumpert Hospital. Either they helped you deliver a baby or gave you a hug or made sure the hospital room was spotlessly sanitary.

The first group of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word (why do orders have to pick such long names?) arrived in Shreveport 100 years ago. I'm putting together a story about them and I would love to have your stories to go with it. Please e-mail me at with any anecdotes.
