About This Item

1919. Original photograph. Very Good. Contains head-and-shoulders portraits of eight young women in white nursing caps and uniforms, arranged within a shield labeled "Great Falls Columbus Hospital, 1919" with a white cross at the bottom. Image size is 10" x 8". Mounted in the original mat, with the names of the eight women written boldly in pencil on the verso. Surnames are: Donat, Youngren, Hutcheson, Oneal, Lichter, Allen, Goodyear, and Fromhart. Overall size is 13.5" x 11.25" Founded in 1892 by five Sisters of Providence nuns, the hospital was named Columbus after the explorer. Those five nuns nursed more than 99 patients the first year, made 43 home visits, served 170 meals, and wrote 475 prescriptions, according to an article in the Great Falls Tribune. A nurses home was added to the hospital in 1903. By the time the young women in this 1919 photograph graduated, the Wesley Van Orsdel Nurses Home had been built across the street.
