Indianapolis Journal - 1900-04-15 (Smallpox epidemic), p. 6Another Case of Smallpox

Another case of smallpox was reported to the Board of Health last night, the patient being Ed Kellermeyer, of 330 East Minnesota street. He lived with his brother, who is married. The house and inmates have been placed under quarantine. Kellermeyer’s case is said to be mild, but he is unable to tell where he was exposed to the disease. Dr. Clark says the health officers have been able to trace the other cases of smallpox in the city to the Bates-street case.
