The Medical Center Library & Archives is happy to announce that the National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit, “Pictures of Nursing: The Zwerdling Postcard Collection” is display through February 25th. It is now accompanied by a display of “Pictures of Nursing at Duke” featuring pictures from the Duke Medical Center Archives.
Nurses and nursing have often been the subject of postcard art for over a hundred years; thus, the postcards from the Zwerdling Collection provide insight into popular social and cultural perceptions of the nursing profession. In conjunction with these artistic renderings of nurses, the “Pictures of Nursing at Duke” display provides archival photographs of nurses working and studying at Duke Hospital and the School of Nursing respectively.
Do you have pictures of nursing at Duke? If so, please consider donating them. Contact the Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 383-2653 to donate your materials, access more photographs, or just learn more about our collections.
