When the widowed wife of a former prominent physician was sent to Eloise by one of her sons, Superintendent Bennett stepped in to remedy the situation. Bennett interviewed the lady and learned of her plight. He also was put onto the wealthy son who lived in California and knew nothing of his mother's exile to Eloise. As soon as he heard of her peril he rushed (as fast as a train could back in 1922; likely several days) from Los Angeles back to Detroit via train and went straight to Eloise. There they embraced and after gathering her few belongs and bidding farewell to her fellow patients and the staff the two boarded a taxi, returned to the depot and took a train back to Los Angeles.
