Biographical Sketch

As early as 1968 Anita Dorr RN, Emergency Room Supervisor at E.J. Meyer Memorial Hospital (now Erie County Medical Center), began identifying specific needs of emergency room nurses and planning with other nurses in the Buffalo, New York area, a formal emergency room nurses organization. Her vision was to provide continuing education and a united voice. Dorr was a graduate of the E.J. Meyer Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Buffalo, New York. She joined the Army Nurse Corps. In World War II where she was promoted to the rank of Major. She saw action in major campaigns in Africa. In the 1960s, she served as supervisor of admissions and the emergency department at the E.J. Meyer Memorial Hospital. Her contributions in emergency nursing were widely recognized. She served on the New York State Technical Advisory Board on Emergency Nursing and has been invited to serve on the US Public health Bureau of Emergency Services.

Dorr is credited with the 1967 invention of what was then called the “Crisis Cart” or what is now called the Emergency Room Crash Cart. Through corresponding and meeting with other E.R. nurses from all over the country she supplied the impetus for what became the Emergency Room Nurses Association in 1970. Initially she called the association “The Emergency Room National Organization”. Her title was Chairman of the Emergency Department Nurses Association. Her advisory committee consisted of Dr. George Anast, Dr. David Kluge, Dr. Robert Wilbee, and Odry I. Erickson, RN.

Judy Kelleher launched a similar initiative for emergency nurses on the West Coast in May 1970. Kelleher thought that the organization should be called “Emergency Department Nurses Association.” Kelleher’s fledgling organization contained the following leadership: the steering committee consisted of Judy Kelleher, Hope McCrum, Eileen Farrell, Cathy Griffith, Althea Kennedy, Monica Reiss, and Vivienne Thomas. The Advisory Committee consisted of Dr. William Stryker, Dr. Howell Wiggins, Dr. J. Cuthbert Owens, Dr. John Abbey, and Dr. Vern Nickel. Two other nurses who helped a great deal in the early days were Avice Kerr and Florence Weiner. On December 1 1970 the two nurses from opposite coasts got together and combined the organizations. The two agreed that the organization should officially be called the Emergency Department Nurses Association. Their first meeting was in New York in 1971. In October of 1972, Anita Dorr, RN, succumbed to lung cancer and Ruth Miller became the Executive Director of E.D.N.A. Judy Kelleher was the first person to be elected president. The national organization was divided into eleven regions including Canada. Each region has a representative and there are many local chapters within a region.

In 1985, the Association’s name was changed to Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), recognizing their profession as role-specific rather than site-specific. In 2005, the Emergency Nurses Association celebrated their 35th Anniversary.

Biographical Sketch

The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Chicago was founded in 1889 to supply nursing services to patients unable to afford private nursing care. Jane Adams was a charter member of the Association. By 1894 the staff had grown to 12 nurses who were assigned to all parts of the city. They cared for patients suffering from multiple diseases including tuberculosis, smallpox, and polio, as well as giving maternity and chronic disease care. The VNA was an early provider of school nursing, industrial nursing, and social services. Following decades of expanding services the VNA closed in 1995 following increasing competition from the home health care industry. Their work continues through grants given through the VNA Chicago Foundation.

Scope and Contents

The Visiting Nurse Association of Chicago Collection contains Annual Reports from 1889 through 1989, VNA nurse instruction manuals from 1914-1919, publicity and patient education materials, centennial materials, and self-reviews.  There is also a large collection of photographs and slides. These are mainly from the 1960s to 1990s but there are some earlier images.

Nursing Caps Collection

Nurses’ caps, now rare in the US, were once a distinct part of the nurse’s image.

Photo from pamphlet, Choose a Cap of DistinctionThe origin of the cap isn’t clear. When “trained nursing” started in the 1850s women usually wore caps indoors. Female servants also wore caps as part of their uniform. However the tradition of nursing caps began, they persisted as part of a nurses’ uniform in the US until the 1970s when fewer nurses started wearing them. They were impractical and inconsistent with the image of a knowledge-based profession.

US nurses wore the cap of their training school or university throughout their career. Thus one hospital could have a multitude of caps being worn.

The caps in the Midwest Nursing History Research Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago have been collected from different sources; many came from nurses at the Cook County Hospital in Chicago and showed that the nurses came from hospitals and universities all over the world.

Many of the caps in the collection are yellowed and some are stained. They represent years of nursing work, many spent in the busy wards of the old Cook County Hospital.
