1918 nurses

A group of women stand outside the St. Francis School of Nursing in 1918, near the end of World War I.

A November 1918 view of a group of women from the St. Francis School of Nursing taken near the end of World War I outside of the old hospital building at 10th and Market streets.

While these women may not have aided the war effort as nurses, they surely were involved in helping to fight the 1918 flu pandemic, also called the Spanish Flu, that lasted from 1918-1920.
