Nursing classics added

A wonderful donation of seventeen books, courtesy of former OHSU School of Nursing faculty member Wilma Peterson, has brought several nursing classics into the historical collections--along with some colorful commentary.

In addition to important titles such as Amy Frances Brown's Research in nursing (1958) and the paired reports Abstract for Action (1970) and From Abstract Into Action (1973) edited by Jerome Lysaught, the donation contained a copy of Blanche Pfefferkorn and Marian Rottman's Clinical education in nursing (1932). The previous owner, SON faculty member Lucile Gregerson, jotted her critique of the book, and its author, on the front flyleaf:


Lucile also extra-illustrated her copy of Margaret Bridgman's Collegiate education for nursing (1953) with a photograph of herself with the author and SON faculty members Eleanor Palmquist and Olive Slocum:
