The Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives thanks you for your continued support of the Archive’s ongoing work to process and catalogue the Johns Hopkins Nursing Historical Collection and the Church Home and Hospital Nursing Collection. The nursing collections continue to be used by researchers, including students, faculty, and staff at the School of Nursing; members of the Alumni Association; and historians of medicine and nursing.
This year we have also seen use of the archival holdings by nurses from Phipps who are researching the history of psychiatric nursing at Hopkins as well as various nursing staff and former staff from Pediatrics and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit from The Johns Hopkins Hospital who are researching their history in preparation for their move to the new Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center building in April 2012.
New material has been added to both collections from a variety of sources. Betty B. Scher ’50 continued to volunteer her time working on the index to the Johns Hopkins nurses alumni magazine. She has completed the index of all articles and alumni news notes from 1901-2003, which are now searchable by title, author, subject names, and keyword. The index can be browsed by volume. The index of the magazine is available in the online catalog and will soon be published as a finding aid on our website.
