Front Cover: The clinic at Beech Fork was the first district clinic built by the Frontier
Nursing Service. The original building was opened in 1927, and the first signature in its
guest book was that of Mary Breckinridge, who founded FNS in 1925. The history of the
Beech Fork Clinic is in many ways a history of FNS itself.
Photo Credits: The photograph of the original Beech Fork Clinic was taken by Caulfield
and Shook. Other Beech Fork photographs are by Gabrielle Beasley. Photos on page 15
are by courtesy of Berea College.

i THE CLINIC AT BEECH FORK
- ITS 57-YEAR HISTORY
IS A MINI-HISTORY OF FNS
The first signature in the guest book of the Beech Fork Clinic is
that of Mary Breckinridge, who wrote it there in April of 1927.
This entry links the clinic to the very beginnings of the Frontier
Nursing Service, which was then less than two years old. Turning
the pages, one may find many familiar names, from pioneer
nurses Mary Willeford and Gladys Peacock to Betty Lester and
Molly Lee and Kate Ireland. Entries show that visitors have come
from Tsingtao and Peiping, from England and Scotland, from the
A Philippines and Puerto Rico and India and Libya and France.
· Much interesting commentary accompanies the signatures and
r addresses. One visitor writes, "You see this road? Don’t take it."
l Another tells whimsically of a race between horse and stork.
V Twenty-one signatures from nearby Asher record "a working" in
g 1934. A baby left her footprint in the guest book in 1949. And there
Q are drawings of animals, and many words in appreciation of good
{ food and sincere hospitality.
[ These entries do not tell the story of Beech Fork, but they hint
{ at it. Behind this cryptic record lies a history that in many ways is
; the history of FNS itself.
