Collection provided by: Graham Hospital School of Nursing
The celebration of the Graham Hospital School of Nursing’s 100th anniversary provided the impetus to begin a two-fold project documenting the history of the School through words and images. Images from the Past includes a digital collection of photographs and scanned documents found in the School Library’s historical collection. Voices from the Past includes the transcripts, cover sheets and audio clips resulting from more than eighty oral history interviews with graduates of the Graham three year diploma RN program located in Canton, IL. Both of these labors of love were made available through funding from the Illinois State Library and also the Greater Midwest Region of the National Library of Medicine. The results of these ongoing projects can be found here in the Illinois Digital Archive.
Digitization of this collection was developed pursuant to a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, an Office of the Secretary of State using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act .
