Nursing -- Study and teaching
Found in 5 Collections and/or Records:
The records consist of policy and financial records, reports, correspondence, student records and notebooks, photographs, and alumnae records documenting the operations of the Connecticut Training School for Nurses. Topics include curriculum, administration, organization, social work, legal issues, funding, personnel, and social events. Included are two historical sketches of the school by Francis Bacon, a key personality in its founding, and Henry W. Farnum, its president.
The papers document the career of Yale School of Nursing professor, Nurse-Midwifery Specialty, Helen Varney Burst. The bulk of the materials are evenly divided between speeches given by Varney Burst, 1970-2015, mainly on the history or future of midwifery, and material documenting her work on the Special Commission on Infant Health in New Haven, primarily 1987-1995. There are also small amounts of material on other aspects of nurse-midwifery and Varney Burst’s career.
