description

My grandfather, Adolph W Multhauf stopped in El Paso in 1927 or 28. He was a urologist trained by Dr Hugh Young at Johns Hopkins and Dr Frederick Foley at Ankor Hospital in St Paul, Minnesota. He arrived by train on his way out to take a teaching position in San Francisco. When he stopped in El Paso, he looked up an Dr Frank Goodwin an orthopedist who he had met in Minnesota. Dr Goodwin persuaded my grandfather to stay in El Paso and set up his urologic practice here. He then was on the staff of the City Genito-Urinary Clinic, City-County Hospital, Hotel Dieu, Masonic, and Providence Hospitals.

My grandfather built a house at 915 Rim Road where Dr Goodwin was a nearby neighbor. Around 1930, my grandfather and Dr Goodwin purchased El Valle Polo Field. Members of their team were Dr Gerald Jordan, Paul Luckett, Rudy Wisburn, and Reginald Sanders. They would play against United State Army Calvary teams from Ft Bliss, as well as Mexican Army and civilian teams from Juarez.

My father, William J Multhauf was born in El Paso in 1930
