Dinner at Mayowood: Enduring Values in Changing Times

1940 ... the end of the Great Depression ... the gathering storm of World War II ... and, as administrator Harry Harwick described it, "the year of greatest crisis" for Mayo Clinic.

Following the deaths of the Mayo brothers and Sister Joseph Dempsey, the longtime superintendent of Saint Marys Hospital, many skeptics predicted "grass will grow on the streets of Rochester."

Weaving together historic events and themes, this film imagines two journalists coming to Rochester, expecting to find an institution in decline.  Invited to dinner at Mayowood, the home of Dr. Chuck and Alice Mayo, they meet an array of guests and discover the enduring strength of Mayo Clinic: teamwork in service to patients.
