Back in 1948 when I started at UofT at Knoxville there was a discussion within members of the King family regarding the property on which John Hopkins now stands. One group of the family wanted to pursue a lawsuit with John Hopkins,but my father explained to them that a suit had been settled in the 1920's and there was no point inpursuing the matter for a settlement had already been made during that time.
I can't offer you any more than the remembrance of that discussion except to say that knowing my father, he probably would have invested in a suit of that kind if it had been worth while. I imagine that there would be court records in Baltimore to prove or disprove the event of such a lawsuit.
I hope that these thoughts are of value to you all.
Take care.. and God Bless America and those who made it what is for all of us.Bill King
