Oddities: Operation Halt’s Girl’s Laughing – 1936

This article was in the Los Angeles Times March 8, 1936:

Ten days of spasmodic laughing ended today for Teresa Hawkins.

The 18 year old brunet business college student rested comfortably after an abdominal operation to relieve a psychoneurotic condition.

She had been laughing and giggling since Feb. 26, when the attack seized her while she watched a show.
