College News and Departmental Notes: Nursing and Health
by Departmental notes - 1920
The students, graduates, and some friends of the department of nursing and health have founded an Adelaide Nutting Historical Nursing Collection in honor of Miss Nutting and of the twentieth birthday of the department, which they feel is in such a large measure due to her splendid leadership. They have collected $1,200 dollars to begin this collection and intend to add to it from time to time. There is no large historical nursing library in this country at present, and it is hoped that there will be gathered here at Teachers College a collection of books, pictures, autographed letters, and other historical material on nursing and hospital work which shall be representative of the whole country and as far as possible of other countries. A number of gifts have already been received, among them some personal mementoes of Miss Nightingale which have been sent by her cousin Miss Bonham-Carter. Reports and records of the earliest days of nursing in America will be especially welcomed, and it is hoped that all who have access to such material will notify the department of nursing and health or Miss Elizabeth G. Baldwin, the librarian of Teachers College, and help in every way to make this a worthy collection.
