About Mary "Minnie" Caroline Spencer Churchill (d'Erlanger)'''

Minnie d’Erlanger Churchill poses with her great-grandmother's bust at Erlanger Hospital - photo by Wes Schultz Minnie d’Erlanger Churchill, great-granddaughter of Baron Frederic Emil d’Erlanger and the Baroness Marguerite Slidell Mathilde d’Erlanger – for whom Erlanger Hospital was named – paid her first visit to Chattanooga on Monday.

Baron d’Erlanger contributed $5,000 in 1889 to start Chattanooga’s first hospital, which has grown into the region’s largest and most comprehensive teaching healthcare institution.

A descendant of one of Chattanooga’s leading benefactors, Mrs. Churchill has deep connections to two families with long ties to both European royalty and politics and American finance and industry.

Baron d’Erlanger was a German-born English financier who headed a syndicate that helped develop the northern Kentucky city, Erlanger, that bears his name. His land syndicate persuaded the Queen and Crescent Railroad (now Norfolk Southern) to make Erlanger, Ky., a stop for all passenger trains – and offered free rail transportation to anyone moving to that city.
