Baby Named for Cop

When Mrs. Ruby Williams of Pittsburgh went into labor in mid-1968, she called for help.

Two police officers, Patrick Caslin and Robert Stehar, arrived at her home.

It was only Officer Stehar’s second day on the job, but, taking orders from his partner who is an old pro at such emergencies, he ably assisted in delivering Mrs. Williams’ baby inside the house.

Mother and son were then taken to the Magee-Women’s Hospital, “where Mrs. Williams promptly named her offspring “Robert,” in appreciation of a job well done.”
