Ever heard of the Hotel Von Dorn?
Now you have. (See “Anamnesis” in Part III: The Tenderloin.)

Thanks for a great website. I came across my fathers business card from the late 60’s when he managed The King Arthur (Hotel Von Dorn) which is now the Salvation Armys building at 242 Turk St. Im still looking for more pictures of this building but cant find much. My parents have told me many amazing stories about this place, its tenants and managing it, including a brush with the black panthers, a visit from the FBI and hiding under the bed from people with guns (which led them to leave for good).
