The documents reproduced in this exhibit are from the Vashti Bartlett
Papers in the Johns Hopkins Nursing Historical Collection. These
contain hundreds of photographs, letters, journals, and notebooks
which document the many challenges Vashti Bartlett (SON 1906) faced
in her nursing career. They constitute a rich resource of primary
materials for studies in the history of twentieth-century nursing.
Volunteers and staff of the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives are
organizing and preserving the papers of Bartlett and also those of
other Hopkins nurses so that they may be made accessible for research.

Papers and the Nursing Historical Collection.
