1 ZELLA GERTRUDE BAYNHAM later MARTIN 1917 - 1919 ORIGINAL ARCHIVE OF EIGHT [8] LETTERS HANDWRITTEN BY A QUAKER NURSE WHILE ON DUTY AT THE PREMIER AMERICAN MENTAL HOSPITAL
1917 Very Good 
On offer is a small, fascinating archive of eight [8] original manuscript letters handwritten by Zella Gertrude Baynham (later Martin) while "on duty" at Friends Hospital in Philadelphia from 1917-1919 to Agnes Maust in Berwick, Pennsylvania. Friends Hospital is recognized as one of the premier mental hospitals in the United States. It was founded by Quakers in 1813. Baynham commenced nursing at Friends Hospital in 1916. The letters are diary like as Zella tells a close friend many important details of her life as a nurse; about her training at Bellevue Hospital in New York City; how she has been "charge nurse of the convalescent ward for 5 weeks; about her courses of study and examinations; much more about her patients and their care; how at one point she had "a private practice"; later describes having an infected finger that "has been cut 5 times in 3 to 4 places...A rose thorn was the cause of it"; also about brief training at Harlem Hospital; how on her first night of "night duty" she was so scared that "every little noise I hear I imagine someone is after me..." Also about romance and gentlemen; about being on duty in the OR and much more. This is really a nice group for historians and researchers of nursing. Overall VG.
