So, you want to get married?

We received another box of goodies from the nursing historian-in-residence, Barbara C. Gaines, RN, EdD, author of the history of the OHSU School of Nursing. An accrual of sorts to a collection she donated in August, this small box contains some really fantastic tidbits from the school's history--including the memo formalizing new rules about married students on campus:

"University of Oregon Department of Nursing Education permits marriage of students but makes no time allowance." Do you suppose there were many ceremonies performed right there in the surgical theatre as other students looked on? They were already wearing white, after all...
