They treated injured animals during the Blitz in WW II and still operates today. When the organization was founded in 1910, it was named after a London, England, animal welfare group called “Our Dumb Friends League.” In those days, the term “dumb” was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. Today, the Dumb Friends League, headquartered in Denver, is the largest community-based animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region.

Dijon was one of the first hospitals outside of Roentgen’s own labs to integrate x-ray technology as a regular part of diagnostic testing. Though the first x-rays of humans were taken in 1895 and x-ray therapy was used (in the most crude form) since the early 1900s, the diagnostic value of the imaging procedure was not widely regarded in the United States until well into the 1930s.
