1960s School of Nursing photos

The Centennial Year of the School of Nursing has been a great opportunity for HC&A to reach out to faculty and staff on campus. Just recently, we helped staff at the OHSU Foundation find photographs in our collections to use in presentation material for SON alumni. They selected images from a terrific group of digitized photographs that the school shared with us.

These are just three of the School of Nursing photographs that we've recently added to the archives - the whole group of photos spans the 20th century and includes great scenes of students, faculty and buildings and facilities.
