Collection Development -- Nursing History Collection
The Nursing Collection provides context and support to the materials found in the University of Connecticut School of Nursing Archives. This area is particularly strong in its documentation of the professional development, status, and legal activities associated with nursing by the organizations in Connecticut on behalf of their members as well as 20th century nurse training. There is limited, but significant, documentation of information on 19th century nursing activities during the American Civil War in the Josephine Dolan Collection. Formats accepted include manuscripts, diaries, correspondence, photographs, ephemera, sound recordings, and moving images.
Archives & Special Collections collects:
- Materials that support the University of Connecticut's School of Nursing educational curriculum
- Letters and diaries of nurses from Connecticut serving in or with the U.S. armed forces
For inquiries about the collection or possible donations please contact the curator, Betsy Pittman or (860) 486-4507.
