  1. Dr McCall was our family doctor for many years in fact I (1951)and two of my siblings 1952,1953 were delivered by Dr McCall. As a child I visited his office on a regular basis for all the childhood shots that were then administered. The building was very unique and seemed very modern back then - my younger brother (1956) now owns a house in North County that was designed by Harris Armstrong on Old Jamestown Rd - when I first saw it before knowing its history I told my Mom that it reminded me of Dr McCalls office in Brentwood -this style of architecture definitely made an impression at a very young age. I've enjoyed perusing your website

  2. Thank you very much for your informative comment. Its wonderful to hear that the design of Dr. McCall's office had such an impact on you.

    If you have any other memories or thoughts, please feel free to contact me at the email address below.

    If you brother is interested, I'd enjoy speaking with him about his Armstrong house.
