From the Feb 20, 1913 edition of The Wicomico News

BUILDING SOME COLORED SHACKS

The Pine Bluff Sanatorium Commission of which Senator Price has recently been named a member to take the place of Dr. Brice Goldsborough, resigned, has started work erecting some outside shacks at the Sanatorium for use of colored patients.  This institution is doing a great work and is providing places for incurable tuberculosis patients.  It is the only place in Maryland where the incurable can be sent and it is a great boom for suffering humanity.  It is the intend of the commission to erect several of these shacks and providing for more patients.
