Medical College of Pennsylvania Records - nursing photographs, [c. 1905-73]
Notes: 26 of the 38 photographs have Archives "P" numbers on them, and were missing from the Archives since at least 1978. It seems that these photographs were given "P" numbers, probably by Ida Draeger, the librarian who maintained historic materials. The Archives was formally established in 1977. Shortly thereafter, someone must have noticed that these images, though noted in Ida's card catalog, were missing. There was a note on each card to this effect. The photos have now been returned, 25 years later - or more, and are now part of this accession. Some are oversized and so are housed with other oversized material.
