Old letters, newspapers, library and state records, and personal interviews have contributed to this history. Beginning with the first recorded public care of the sick in the colony, the author discusses the progress of nursing to the time of this book's writing. Wyche was prominent in the initial organization of trained nurses in the state, was on the first board of examiners for trained nurses, and for ten years was superintendent of nurses at Watts Hospital.
Originally published in 1938.
