Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

One More Group of Nurses …

with 4 comments

This looks like another group of graduating nurses.  I cannot tell what is on the table, but they could  the caps the nurses wore.  No names or a date, so I am sorry on that end.  If anyone knows any of these girls, please feel free to comment.  Thanks for looking …

  1. Hi Frank, I wrote to you earlier about being a student nurse and knowing your dad. This is a picture of my class during our “capping” ceremony. I am Theresa Whitt Crooke and fourth (counting from left to right). Our class entered in September 1946 and capping was the following spring. I only remember a few names. So: #1 (l – r) is Margaret Cuscaiden from Tampa; #4 me; #7 Mary Shields (my roommate); #8 Mary Beth Barrineau, from Pensacola and who sang at my wedding. I have a picture receiving my cap (somewhere). I believe Frank was still working as XRay technician for the hospital while he was getting his business established. Wonderful 65 year old memories. Thanks, Theresa Whitt Crooke

    • Theresa … Thank you for the comment. I have more of these “capping” ceremonies that I plan to post in the future when I have time to clean-up the images in Photoshop. Please check back periodically, I do not have any schedule to post these images. Thanks again … Frank

  2. Some of the items on the table are “lamps” with candles in them. (think of the lamp that Aladdin rubbed) Lighting each nurse’s lamp is an old tradition in nurses’ capping ceremonies.

    Thanks for your work here. It is fascinating.

    • That is interesting, Steve … I have maybe 10 or so of these ” cappings ” that my father photographed that I have not done anything with. Sometime in the future I will get around to posting them … Thanks, Frank
