The Fischer Quints were born September 14, 1963. They were the fourth set of quintuplets in the world to survive and the first American quints to survive infancy. There was much media interest after their birth.
Here we meet the doctor who delivered the quints, the tiny premature Fischer babies and the nurses who care for them, and the elder Fischer siblings. The family home is shown, as are a number of locals. The town of Aberdeen, South Dakota is also featured — a number of local businesses donated to help the suddenly much larger family.
The four girls were named Mary Margaret, Mary Anne, Mary Magdalene, and Mary Catherine. The boy was named James Andrew. The quints had four older sisters and a brother.
