Patrick vs Green

An empty envelope found at Mom’s house that leaves me full of questions.

Who was Mr. Charles Lowry? What did he mean by Patrick versus Green? Why did the back of the envelope have Andrew J. Nowakowski, M.D. of 479 Bluff City Blvd, Elgin Illinois embossed on the envelope flap? What, if anything, did Dr. Nowakowski have to do with my parents? And what was in the envelope?

Dr. Nowakowski did indeed live, or at least practice at 479 Bluff City Blvd in 1951 according to city directories. Interestingly, according to this article, he treated people with mental illnesses. Was Mr. Charles Lowry one of Dr. Nowakowski’s patients?

Also according to the article linked to above, when Dr. Nowakowski died, his widow, Opal, married an Alex Nowakowski. One Ancestry.com record hints that Andrew had a twin brother. Could Opal have married her husband’s twin brother?

But I still know nothing about Charles Lowry. Or what was in the envelope and why the envelope was from a mental health professional.
