Section I, Series 10. Pennsylvania Hospital Nursing Collection, 1876-1995.

Nurses' Home and Training Center Plans, 1925-1934 (MG 3.6, 14 file folders)

Although a nurses’ residence at Pennsylvania Hospital was not built until 1960, a nurses’ home and training center was under consideration for many years previously. This series includes hand-drawn preliminary plans and cost estimates for constructing a five-story building, as well as articles about the design of nurses’ homes in other hospitals across the country. A fundraising brochure details plans for an eight-story building designed to accommodate 200 nurses to be erected at 8th and Spruce Streets.
