My condolensces to the Whitlock family. My brother, sister and I were three of the 9000 babies brought into this wonderful world by the hands of this great man. My father's medical practice was located next to Dr. Whitlock's at 860 Summit Street in Elgin. I spent many summers working there through my high school days seeing and talking with Dr. Whitlock. Brings back many great memories.
