Thanks for exhibit!
I nursing school's pins collector.
I did not know that OHSU has so many types of pins.
I do not have these three icons shown in library, but I have other: "University of Oregon School of Nursing" with stone (1966), "O. H. S. U. School of Nursing" with stone (1983), "O. H. S. U. School of Nursing" without stone (2007) and , "O. H. S. U. School of Nursing" without stone (2009) with copper color in circle. All different!
I have a few questions:
1. Who and why receive "50 years Golden Rose" pin?
2. Who made nurse's white cap? ("Kay's Cap" or different company and which style namber? )
3. Who made nurse's cape? ("Stein Uniform Co." or different company?)

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the exhibit! I'll answer your questions as best I can, in order:
1. I have not found much information on the "50 years Golden Rose" pin, other than that 1960 was the 50th anniversary of the school's opening (as Multnomah Training School)> In addition,the Golden Rose is an OHSU-wide award for outstanding service, so it may be related to that honor!
2. The white cap in the exhibit was indeed manufactured by "Kay's Caps", style number 5611.
3. The nurse's cape is a "Regal Cape" made by Nudelman Brothers of Portland/Seattle.
I hope this information is helpful to you!
