  1. My great-grandfather, John Easterly, was the architect that designed this. I am not from that area. Is any part of the original structure still standing?

    Current plans call for the demolition of the building.

    My father, Wilkes Louis “Lou” Johnson, R.P.T., took a job at Sonoma County Hospital in 1958, after graduating from the University of Wisconsin. It was his first Physical Therapy job. There were many indegent patients, and when they died, my dad would take their shoes, belts and hats, to give to those that would come later without these essential items. Dr Wally Treanor, Physiatrist, wrote a note promising to refer patients to my dad, who had moved to Novato, CA in 1959 to start the first P.T. office in Novato, and to qualify for the purchase of his first home, for $19,000. I later worked with Dr Treanor at Northcoast Rehab as a P.T. in the 1980’s, as well as with Carl Anderson, MD (Ortho), whom my father also knew. I worked with my dad from 1982 to 1985, when the second P.T. office came to Novato, 25 years after my dad opened his practice !
