Marcella Ryan Le Beau - Interview with Marcella Ryan Le Beau: clip: Was asked to see an Indian patient from Rosebud, South Dakota; he had lost both legs and it was feared he was suicidal; she visited with him, brought him newspapers from home; she offered to write letters for him; one day he was gone; she looked for him for 40 years; one day a woman came to her hospital to introduce a new form; she called Le Beau the next day to say that the amputee patient was her father; they got in touch, and she invited him to Eagle Butte and had an honor dinner for him; he was the only American Indian she recalls treating.
