The Morgue of Cook County.
Opened June, 1872. The Morgue is under the supervision of the Superintendent of Public Charities, the building being in charge of the Warden of the hospital. It is established for the reception of the bodies of unknown persons drowned, or found dead in the streets, and is open for the inspection of the public, daily, from 7 A. M. to sunset.
A book is kept in the office of the Morgue, in which citizens may record the names of missing friends, and their description, with addresses to which information may be sent.
No corpse is received unless in charge of a policeman, or on the order of the Coroner, or Superintendent of Police, except when the Warden is sure the body was found dead in the street, or drowned.
An accurate record of the details of the recovery of any corpse is kept in the Morgue, with full description of the body and clothing, and other things
found thereon. Bodies remain on exhibition seventy-two hours, when, if unclaimed, they are buried; but the clothing and effects remain on exhibition twenty-one days longer.
Photographs of all unrecognized bodies are taken and kept, for inspection of parties hunting for missing friends.
No body taken to the Morgue is taken away, or interred, except on the written order of the Coroner.
The clothing of unrecognized bodies, after the period of public exhibition has expired, is washed, and tied up in a package, and kept for six months.
The nuniber of bodies received during the two years ending June 1st, 1874, was 223. Of this number there were recognized 164; unrecognised, 59.
