Frontier Nursing Service Collection Utilized in Recent Publication

 Rooted in the Mountains, Reaching to the World: Stories of Nursing and Midwifery at Kentucky’s Frontier School, 1939-1989 by Anne Z. Cockerham and Arlene W. Keeling chronicles the first 50 years of what is now Eastern Kentucky’s Frontier University.  The authors relied heavily on the Frontier Nursing Service Collection in UK Libraries Special Collections.

The FNS Collections totals nearly 300 cubic feet of material on all aspects of the FNS.  Materials include correspondence, minutes, reports, promotional materials, guest books, financial files, architectural plans, and memorabilia. There is also an accompanying collection of photographs and other audio-visual materials as well as over 200 oral history interviews in the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History.
