Records of the Church Home and Hospital Nurses' Alumnae Association in the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions


[Sub-record group/Sous-fonds] Publications. — 1929-2003
The publications of the Alumnae Association consist of newsletters, recruitment brochures and histories. The Bulletin ran from 1936 to 1960 with a break from 1941-1945. The Alumnae News was published from 1960 to 1990, succeeded by The Ensign which ran until 2003. This full series of alumnae newsletters offers an excellent history of the association, its members, and its activities. The association also published recruitment materials for Church Home and Hospital nursing service and later for Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing. Always interested in preserving its history, the association also participated in the publication of a 25th Anniversary History in 1929 and a book in honor of its 50th Anniversary, Judith Robinson's Ensign on a Hill.
