A brick at the Saranac Laboratory has been dedicated in the name of Alfredo and Alicia Gonzalez by Amy Catania.



Married: Alfredo Gonzalez


Alicia Milanes del Prado married Alfredo Gonzalez, twenty years her junior. She was short, stout, and soft-spoken. The couple soon opened their first cure cottage catering to Latin American patients; over the next forty years they would operate several such cottages in Saranac Lake, the largest and longest-running one at 80 Park Avenue. Alicia may have come to Saranac Lake with Sara del Prado, a patient from Havana, Cuba.
