When the Mary Breckinridge Hospital was dedicated in january 1975, as the Frontier
Nursing Service was nearing its fiftieth anniversary, there was placed in its cornerstone a *-
collection of mementos that symbolized its purpose and history. This year. as FNS observes
its sixtieth anniversary, it is moved to reflect again on those meaningful symbols, as
recorded in the photograph that is reproduced on the cover of this issue.
The cornerstone collection includes Mary Breckinridge's Bible; a photograph of her son,
Breckie, and her father, Major Clifton Rodes Breckinridge; an invitation to the dedication
of the new hospital; a list of donors to the Mary Breckinridge Hospital and Development
Fund; a statement of the Object of FNS (from the Articles of Incorporation); the Motto of
the Service; and, “‘in memory of bygone days," a horseshoe. These are displayed on a silver
tray presented to FNS by Mr. and Mrs. Roger L. Branham.
Although FNS has scheduled no formal anniversary celebration this year, a special tribute l
to the Service will take place at the University of Kentucky on November 7. At that time, l
the FNS archives will be presented to the university in dedication ceremonies co- ,l
sponsored by the University of Kentucky Library and the UK College of Nursing. ln the l
article that begins on page 2 of this issue, Anne G. Campbell, curator of the Appalachian =
Collection at the university, describes the Frontier Nursing Service Collection and tells l
something of the plans for the dedication ceremonies.

The Frontier Nursing Service Collection contains many documents that go back to Mary
Breckinridge’s studies and plans for organizing the Service, which in its first years was _
known as the Kentucky Committee for Mothers and Babies. This photograph of important
documents includes Mrs. Breckinridge’s certificate to practice midwifery in Kentucky, the
first of its kind issued by the State Board of Health. Also shown is the first issue of the FNS ‘ 
Quarterly Bulletin, a report called "Midwifery in the Kentucky Mountains," and an early ;
photograph of a midwife and child.

Curator of the Appalachian Collection  
University of Kentucky l?
The Frontier Nursing Service Collection, a significant and valuable
historical archive, will be formally presented to the University of
Kentucky on November 7, 1985. The collection includes a wealth of
materials which document the organization’s background and its
development over the last sixt years. These records have been
Y . .
transferred to the University of Kentucky Library, where they have ·
been organized and catalogued under the author’s direction. 2

The author and Terry Birdwhistell, Director of UK’s Oral
History Program, served as consultants to FNS’s Oral History
Project several years ago. Our visits to Wendover acquainted us
. with the arra and uantit of historical materials enerated b
~ FNS. In recognition of the need to preserve these important records,
arrangements were made to establish the Frontier Nursing Service
 ' Collection at the UK Library. During recent years, the Wendover
g staff has worked with the Library to locate items which are
included in the collection. File cabinets, closets, desk drawers, old
Ii trunks, and various other locations revealed many dusty papers
and old files.
— FNS’ organizational history is documented in its articles of
incorporation and in the original and amended by-laws. Minutes of
meetings provide information on the administration of the organi-
zation. Detailed statistical reports and the well known Metropolitan
Life Insurance Company’s Tabulations of FNS Midwifery Records
are evidence of FNS’ early success in carrying out its mission.
Mary Breckinridge’s personal keepsakes form an important part of the collection. Shown
here are pages from her girlhood journals and memorabilia from her travels in England
and Scotland prior to founding the Frontier Nursing Service in 1925.

Extensive office files document the day-to-day activities at the
Wendover offices from 1925 to 1973. Files under headings such as
"Chickens and Gardens," "Federal Crop Loans," "Horses," and
"Uniforms" are found in the earliest set of records. Ledger books
offer a detailed record of the accounting system set up by Mrs.
, Breckinridge and a Lexington accountant in 1929. The Wendover
4 staff accurately kept records of expenditures and income for a , ,
` variety of accounts. I
The initial organization of committees, both in Kentucky and
beyond the mountains, is recorded in the City and District Commit-
tee files. Minutes of meetings, invitations and mementos from
I committee events, and material relating to the Brittanic and
Belgenland cruises in the early 1930s are found in these files. Mrs.  
Breckinridge’s efforts to establish and maintain support for FNS  
may also be seen in the appeals such as "Waiting" and "Will You  
Fill Her Saddlebag?" The collection includes examples of these and _ yi;
additional cards, brochures, and fliers that solicited patrons for l`·»s
FNS. `J_`
Another significant aspect of the collection is Mary Breckin-  
ridge’s personal materials. Items including pages from her girlhood ii
journals, correspondence with her mother while in France after  
World War I, and notebooks documenting her travel in England _ ,.. A
and Scotland relate to Mrs. Breckinridge’s experiences before she ‘ { g
settled in the Kentucky mountains. She published several books rf},
and pamphlets, as well as a considerable number of articles on FNS ‘  
and related topics. Research materials, correspondence, and manu- A i A_t` "
scripts for several of these are available in the collection. ’ “ M
Photographs and films add a visual dimension to these printed
records. Several hundred photographs and copies of all of the FNS
films are a part of the collection. Copies of the interviews from the i
FNS Oral History Proj ect are included in the Oral History Collection , ,
in the UK Library.  i
The UK Library and the College of Nursing are co-sponsoring ¤
the November 7th program to dedicate the FNS Collection and to
commemorate FNS’ 60th anniversary. Mrs. Jefferson Patterson,
FNS Honorary Chairman, will take part in the program, as well as
two additional speakers who will address the topics of midwifery
and family nursing. A multi—media presentation incorporating
historical photographs and oral history excerpts will also be
presented. Following the program at Memorial Hall, on UK’s

campus, there will be a reception in the Library, where an exhibit
will feature materials from the FNS Collection. A selection of Mrs.
Patterson’s photographs will also be on display. The event promises
to be a tribute to FNS as it completes its 60th year of service to

V FNS early became famous for its “nurses on horseback," of whom the first, of course, was
  Mary Breckinridge herself, shown in the photograph at the left. The memo at the center,
ig  written in 1930, contains a list of prices for components of the nurses’ uniforms: $2.35 each
  for a pair of knickers and a pair of breeches, $1.80 for a jacket, $3.45 for a hat, $.65 for a pair
 — of hose. One of the hats is pictured at the right.

A Guests from all over the world interested in rural health care visited
Frontier Nursing Service this summer to learn about our unique method for
'__ serving southeastern Kentucky and beyond.
From places as far away as The Gambia, Australia, Lebanon, the
Sudan, and South America, dozens of people have observed FNS’ employees
_ at work and have asked questions about how our innovative methods could
be used overseas.
Our most recent international visitor was Dr. Habib N’Jie, Assistant
Director of Health for The Gambia. Traveling with Mr. Henry Van Blake, a
representative from the African-American Institute, Dr. N’J ie visited FNS
, August 5 and 6, staying overnight at the Big House at Wendover.
Dr. N’Jie’s visit was part of a nationwide tour sponsored by the
International Visitor Program of the United States Information Agency.
Since Dr. N’Jie is responsible for administration of the Gambian Health
Service and for coordinating international donations, he had a particular
interest in FNS for its community health centers and its focus on child and
maternal health.
During their two·day stay, Dr. N’J ie and Mr. Van Blake viewed several
historical films of FNS and toured the hospital. He then met with Barbara
Sonnen, Marty Bledsoe, and Mary Weaver to discuss nursing issues. Later
in the day, the two men met Betty Roberts, with the Leslie County Health
Department, and Ruth Beeman at our Frontier School. ‘
For dinner, the guests met with various members ofthe FNS faculty and
staff. On Tuesday, August 5, Dr. N’Jie and Mr. Van Blake visited the
I Community Health Center in the Big Creek Community.
Our district clinics were the site of another international visit when Mr.
J Charles Wesley of Berea brought a group of 30 workers from the Save the
ll Children Federation to the Shopp Folk Health Center at Yerkes. The July
  18 visit was part of a two—week seminar for about 200 Save the Children
 { workers held at Berea College. Some of the workers were natives of the
 · countries in which they were serving; others were Americans.
The Shopp Folk clinic was made possible in part through a grant by the
Save the Children Federation.
After a viewing of parts of The Forgotten Frontier, the guests asked
questions of Lucy Van De Kamp, clinic coordinator, and Judy Lewis,
director of development.
Members of Save the Children were particularly interested in training
midwives for rural areas overseas, especially in South America and Africa.

E _   FNS, Dr. Habib N’ lie, Assistant
  ° · i Director of Health, The Gambia,
_ j i · indicates to FNS Director David _`
V`  (Q-   i Hatfield the approximate location
  of his native land. The Gambia is
;     on the westernmost tip of Africa. It
ZY;    is surrounded on three sides by  
L ‘·     Senegal, whose capital, Dakar, is `.
*g_    just a few miles above The Gambia’s _
      u vx  northern border, and it is bounded V
  t      ,_ , c   on the west by the Atlantic Ocean.  
      `   Dr. M lie visited ms in early W
  A     M $1 il   ._.. g August. ·
On July 2, four women from the Middle East and two translators visited i
FNS for two days. The women were all leaders in their respective countries  i
and were interested in women’s issues.
After arriving at Wendover, the women had dinner with a group of staff y
members of FNS and students at the Big House. After dinner, each woman .
spoke briefly about her work and interests in her native country. In return, 1
each FNS staff person and student introduced him or herself, explained his  K
or her work, gave impressions of FNS and experiences living in south-
eastern Kentucky. This discussion lasted until about 10:30 PM. F
Dr. Elham Bsat El Kallab, a professor of Islamic art and architecture at
the Lebanese University in Beirut, Lebanon, was one ofthe four guests. As  `
an architecture professor, Dr. Kallab was intrigued by the Big House. She l
said she had never seen a building constructed from logs, and was very  »
impressed. She said she was especially interested in American primitive  `
artwork and liked hand-made quilts and pottery, as well as the buildings at i
Wendover and Hospital Hill. __
Ms. Nuha Ghoul is principal of an elementary school and director of a fit,
women’s center in Jerusalem. Ms. Ghoul was interested in women’s health  
care, especially in pre-natal and baby care and home health care.  
Ms. Buthaina Adel J ardaneh, director of consultation service in the  Q
office for Women in Jordan, has written a number of books on teaching l
Arabic, on adult education, and on women’s studies topics. Ms. J ardaneh
surprised the group by noting that Jordan has had state—supported child
care for businesses employing more than a handful of women since the
mid-1950s. Ms. J ardaneh was interested in learning more about U.S. social A
service referral agencies while on her trip. ,
Dr. Anwar Ahmed Yousiff Kordofani is a hematologist who teaches i
medicine at the University of Khartoum in the Sudan. Dr. Kordofani was  

¤ interested in volunteer and community activities work in state and local
politics. She was also concerned about health care delivery systems,
especially for women and children in rural areas. While having dinner, Dr.
Kordofani explained that the Sudan is having a serious problem with
. famine. In addition to receiving an overflow of refugees from Ethiopia, the
L deserts of the Sudan are increasing, reducing available farmland.
Il As we have announced in previous issues, the FNS Quarterly
Bulletin will devote a special issue to the work of the family nurse
( practitioner. Publication is scheduled for the end of this year.
» This issue will be similar in scope and approach to the special
issue on nurse—midwifery that we published in December 1984
S (Vol. 60, No. 2). We expect the FNP issue to contain articles by key
persons in nursing, and we would like also to report on the
2 experiences, views, and wishes of our readers.
It would be very helpful if you would let us know what you
· would like to see in this special issue. Thus, we invite you to share
’ your thoughts with us. We are interested in hearing about (1)
. trends, (2) illustrative anecdotes and personal experiences, (3)
problems, needs, and expectations, together with actual or
recommended solutions, (4) views of the future, (5) commentary,
opinion, and/or philosophical statements, and/or (6) anything
else you think might be of interest.
‘ In preparing this special issue, our essential concern is to
v_ understand today’s needs and the needs of the future. We want to
  look beyond the "state of the art" to those new and developing
factors that we need to understand so that FNS can adapt most
~l effectively and usefully to current and future conditions.
V5 We do need to hear from you. Six months have passed since we
  first announced this special issue, and we need to get our plans
lg, into final form. So please don’t put off responding. Please write us

——FNS Quarterly Bulletin

by Kate Ireland, FNS National Chairman
I and Judy Lewis
The final kick-off for the Nursing Education Enrichment Drive was hosted
` by the Liberty National Bank and Trust Company in Louisville on
Wednesday, June 12. Ron Hallman and I were most pleased to have such a
, good turnout to help us sign the appeals — Sissy and Frank Hower, Dot `
V Clay, Pani Williams, Ellie and Stuart Graves, Cathy and Ken Tuggle, Pat _
` and Gordon Dabney, Sandy and Bill Schreiber, and Mary Stites.  
Frank Hower graciously invited all of us for a delicious dinner at the F
Pendennis Club, and I had the pleasure of visiting Dot Clay, who gave me   ,
the warmest of hospitality, even without the benefit of electricity -— `=
' Louisville was in a four-day blackout!  
I flew on to Washington for a meeting of another organization, the ‘
National Home Caring Council, and I had the pleasure of staying once ,
again with Ruth Newell, former Washington Chairman. We dined with  I
former courier, and now MD (!!!), Horace Henriques III — such fun  
reminiscences. {
Our new Development Director, Judy Jones Lewis, has already begun
traveling. _ ~
— Kate Ireland  °
The first tentative step I have taken Beyond the Mountains on behalf of _
the work at Frontier Nursing Service was in July, to Berea, Kentucky.  A
My first stop was Berea College, where I toured the lovely campus and i
stopped by the Edwards Building to meet with Mrs. Judy Stammer and her
assistant, Mrs. Evelyn Hopper. Mrs. Stammer is a long-time supporter of
Frontier Nursing Service through her position as director of the Appala-
chian Fund and her work with Berea College. _
The Appalachian Fund has been wonderful to FNS — donating money
for everything from jeeps to nursing scholarships.
That evening, I visited with my husband’s uncle, Dr. Jack Lewis, and  
his wife, Mary, who is a nurse. Dr. Lewis, the son ofthe late John and Nora  
Lewis, is a former physician with FNS and is now on staff at Berea  
Hospital. After a delightful dinner, we all stayed in the living room while  I
Jack told stories about the Lewis and Morgan families of Leslie County ·
—especially interesting were those about the late Leona Morgan, the first
Hyden woman to become a "nurse on horseback."
The following morning, I traveled to Bond Street to visit and have lunch
with Mr. and Mrs. Homer Biggerstaff. Mrs. Biggerstaff, who befriended
Mrs. Breckinridge when the Service was in its formative years, also is a
Hyden native. Mrs. Biggerstaff helped Mrs. Breckinridge learn the winding ‘
trails through rural Leslie County in the 1920s. The Biggerstaffs continue

to maintain their traditions. We lunched on ham, green beans, and juicy
ripe tomatoes grown by Mr. Biggerstaff in his garden.
The Biggerstaffs, like Mrs. Stammer and the Lewises, expressed
encouragement to me in my new position and continued support for FNS.
