Leaving the Orphanage


This film was produced in March of 1959 by Lee Phillips-Bell from Chicago's CBS channel 2. This is only a small portion of her documentary film. I know few details regarding the film. I have never met or spoken to Lee Phillips-Bell, but she is the other American woman in the video wearing a light colored coat, a hat, carrying a glove in one hand, and has a purse hanging from one arm. Currently, I am in the process of trying to locate the entire film. This silent 3 minute clip will play twice. It shows my Mom and Dad leaving the orphanage with me after the adoption was completed. The Greek word Metera means Mother.


The video will play through a Quicktime player. If you do not already have Quicktime installed on your computer, or do not see the video click here to download Apple's Quicktime player for MacIntosh users. If you are a Windows PC user click here for a Quicktime player. It is free and very easy to install.
