Historical bulletin of the Saint Philip School of Nursing and alumnae

95 pages : illustrations ; 28 cm
During the first quarter of the twentieth century, when southern law and social practice demanded segregated facilities, the Medical College of Virginia established a separate school of nursing for African American women to provide trained personnel for the St. Philip Hospital. The Saint Philip School of Nursing opened with the hospital in the fall of 1920 and graduated 791 nurses during its 42-year history. The story of the school is told in A Historical Bulletin of the Saint Philip School of Nursing and Alumnae Association. It includes a general history, information on the curriculum, listing of the faculty, rosters of graduates, class photographs, and other information related to the school.
St. Philip alumnae Mayme Wilson Lacy and Pinala W. Monroe compiled this first substantive history of the school in 1978, and The Saint Philip Alumnae Association authorized this fully searchable digital version of the school’s history.
