Biography/History

Archie Hanlan (1924-1973) was a social worker and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania. Hanlan graduated in 1949 from the University of California, Berkeley, and with his wife Mary joined the American Friends Service Committee as a co-director of various workcamps in Mexico. The Hanlans returned to the States after a year, and Archie Hanlan began a career in social work. He returned to school and eventually graduated from the first class of UC-Berkeley’s doctoral program in social work in 1967. After three years at Washington University, he was offered a position with the University of Pennsylvania. Hanlan was to lead an interdepartmental team in developing the United States’ first doctoral program in the administration of human services, but in 1971 he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. In 1973 he anonymously published an article entitled "Notes of a Dying Professor" in the University of Pennsylvania’s alumni magazine, the Pennsylvania Gazette, detailing his experiences as a hospital patient. The article had a significant impact, provoking a large reader response and further articles from Hanlan. During his illness he also participated in several seminars on the topic of dying. Hanlan continued writing about living with ALS until his death later in 1973. His book, "Autobiography of Dying," was published posthumously in 1979.

Mary Hanlan was born in 1928. She graduated in 1950 from the University of California, Berkeley, and in 1966 received her M.S.W. from the same school. Her career focused on family therapy and child welfare. She obtained the copyright to her husband’s works after his death, and in 1978 published her own experiences in an article for the Pennsylvania Gazette, “Living With a Dying Husband.” Mary Hanlan has authored several papers on thanatology and women in social work. She has also been very involved in various community mental health organizations in the Philadelphia area, including the Philadelphia Coalition of Community Mental Health and Mental Retardation Centers, Intercommunity Action, and the West Philadelphia Community Mental Health Consortium.

Biography/History

Florence Nightingale, byname Lady with the Lamp (born May 12, 1820, Florence [Italy]—died August 13, 1910, London, England), foundational philosopher of modern nursing, statistician, and social reformer. Nightingale was put in charge of nursing British and allied soldiers in Turkey during the Crimean War. She spent many hours in the wards, and her night rounds giving personal care to the wounded established her image as the “Lady with the Lamp.” Her efforts to formalize nursing education led her to establish the first scientifically based nursing school—the Nightingale School of Nursing, at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London (opened 1860). She also was instrumental in setting up training for midwives and nurses in workhouse infirmaries. She was the first woman awarded the Order of Merit (1907). International Nurses Day, observed annually on May 12, commemorates her birth and celebrates the important role of nurses in health care.

Biography/History

Mary McMoneagle graduated from the Frankford Hospital Training School for Nurses in Frankford, PA, in 1913. She worked at the Pennsylvania State Sanatorium for Tuberculosis No. 3 in Hamburg, PA, from November 4, 1914 until December 8, 1919. After temporarily nursing at the Frankford Arsenal for four months in 1920, she received a registered nurse license in New York state in 1921. Her work situation after that time is unknown, but her records show her resignation from the Philadelphia Department of Public Welfare April 14, 1937.

Biography/History

Mary Jane Holcombe Trautman graduated from Jefferson Medical College Hospital Training School for Nurses in 1945. Her fiancé Wilbur Trautman attended the Naval Academy. She returned to nursing education at the University of Pennsylvania after 20 years as a naval wife and raising 4 children. After obtaining a BS and MS in Psychiatric Nursing, she taught at Villanova in Philadelphia and then at St. Joseph’s in Windham (Standish), Maine. After retirement she continued to be active in nursing. She attended conferences and worked with several other nurses to organize Maine’s historic nursing papers.

Mary Jane Holcombe Trautman met and became close friends with Gretta (Margaretta) Styles soon after returning to nursing. They corresponded often until Gretta’s death in 2005 and met whenever possible. She maintained a file of their correspondence and “wants to see it carefully preserved in a Nursing Archives at Penn.”

Biography/History

The Pennsylvania Nurses' Association was founded in 1903 by nurses "feeling the need of organization, legislation and registration in the state of Pennsylvania." The immediate objective was for a registration law to control education and entry into the nursing profession, but the specific orientation of regional groups and specialized nurses soon caused the association to branch out in a variety of directions. By 1919, the state association had become unwieldy, and districts were formed to better respond to the needs of individual nurses and regional interests within the state. On April 30, 1919, the Philadelphia District Number 1, along with several others, was admitted to membership.

The concerns of District 1, from its inception, revolved around the establishment of a central headquarters with an official registry of nurses. Lack of interest, however, prevented effective action until the Nurses' Official Directory was established in 1929 to facilitate employment. Shortly after, both interest and membership rose dramatically. The Philadelphia district developed into one of the most active sections, involved in legislative actions in all areas of health care, professional promotion, publicity and education, as well as in many community activities.

Scope and Contents

This collection includes manuscript drafts, published articles, correspondence, and notes. Also included are audio tapes, which consist of Archie Hanlan’s original dictation about his experiences. Most of the materials are related to the publications of the Hanlans’ writings, with the bulk of the collection dated between 1971 and 1979.

Scope and Contents

This collection is unprocessed. A preliminary inventory is given here. Please contact the Center for more information.

Scope and Contents

This small collection is primarily composed of McMoneagle's correspondence and photographs. Her correspondence mainly concerns career milestones such as resignations. The letters and postcards are accompanied by two news clippings and a few handwritten notes on medication dosages. The photographs depict her fellow students at the Franford Hospital, along with staff and patients at the Hamburg Sanatorium. There is also a folder of personal, off-duty photographs of McMoneagle.

Scope and Contents

All materials have been scanned by the donor’s daughter, Liz Trautman, and a CD containing images of all the documents is also included in the archive. All materials have been retained in the order received.

Her daughter believed that (her mother’s), “..passion for nursing and especially her recognition of the humanistic side of nursing are what drew my mother and Gretta Styles to become close friends along with others…”

This collection primarily consists of letters from former Episcopal students, addressed to Patricia D'Antonio. Most of the letters contain reminisces of their student experiences. It is partially processed, this finding aid represents an inventory of the current collection. Please contact the Center for more information.

MC 23.   Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia. Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia records, 1973-1986. 0.1 Linear feet (5 folders).

Historical Sketch

Freedmen's Hospital was established in 1865 as the Freedmen's Bureau for the "relief of freed men and refugees" by the War Department of the United States. This was due in part to the many freed slaves who migrated to Washington, D.C. following the Civil War. Four years after the hospital's founding, they relocated to the campus of Howard University. The School of Nursing was founded in 1894 as an eighteen-month program which was later expanded two years. In 1909, the length of study was increased to three years. In the early twentieth century, the school affiliated with a number of institutions in the Washington area in addition to Howard, such as the Gallanger Municipal Hospital and the D.C. General Hospital. The hospital phased out the school and graduated its last class in 1973. Howard University opened their baccalaureate school of nursing the following year to replace Freedmen's. Over Freedmen's 79-year period, it graduated 1,700 nurses.

The Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Clubs, based in Washington, D.C., coordinates local clubs around the country. The Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia, founded in 1966, was established to promote goodwill among its graduates, to participate in the community health and cultural and educational programs, and to support the scholarship fund of the Freedmen's (and later) the Howard University Federation.

MC 181.   Fondes, Tabitha Parker, 1912-1996. Tabitha Fondes papers. 0.4 Linear feet (12 folders).

Biographical/Historical note

Tabitha Parker Fondes was born in Parsonsburg, Maryland. She helped her widowed mother raise four siblings until the age of 23 when she learned about a career in nursing. This information was carried in a newspaper ad – a call for student nurses at the Mercer Hospital in Trenton, New Jersey – that was blowing across a field she was hoeing. Thus began her 50-year career in nursing. Initially, she was involved in private duty nursing.

She met her husband, James Peter Fondes, while in Philadelphia for a nursing convention after World War I. They raised three children during the Depression. After World War II, her son Alex brought home an Army buddy, William Marchant, who became integrated into the family. A writer for the theater, he is responsible for many successful plays and screen plays. In 1975, he dedicated his biography of Noel Coward, “The Privilege of his Company” to Tabitha Parker Fondes.

She spent time with her son Alex, a theatrical researcher, and became a motherly figure to prominent American actors such as Anthony Franciosa, Ben Gazzara, Shelly Winters, Elaine Stritch, and Maureen Stapleton. While living in England her son became friends with Sir Michael Redgrave and his family as well as members of the Queens household. When Tabitha Fondes visited, she had a meeting with the Queen Mother.

Another son, Robert Parker Fondes, is an avid historian and preservationist. He established the Robert Parker Fondes Endowment in Nursing in her memory at Salisbury State University in Maryland. Her son states it was created in “celebration of a life that took a farm girl from Parsonsburg to demanding motherhood in Philadelphia, to some of the most sophisticated and lively circles in the world.” (Information from the “Alumni News” Vol. 11 No.1 Spring 1996, page 3.)

Biography/History

Archie Hanlan (1924-1973) was a social worker and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Pennsylvania. Hanlan graduated in 1949 from the University of California, Berkeley, and with his wife Mary joined the American Friends Service Committee as a co-director of various workcamps in Mexico. The Hanlans returned to the States after a year, and Archie Hanlan began a career in social work. He returned to school and eventually graduated from the first class of UC-Berkeley’s doctoral program in social work in 1967. After three years at Washington University, he was offered a position with the University of Pennsylvania. Hanlan was to lead an interdepartmental team in developing the United States’ first doctoral program in the administration of human services, but in 1971 he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. In 1973 he anonymously published an article entitled "Notes of a Dying Professor" in the University of Pennsylvania’s alumni magazine, the Pennsylvania Gazette, detailing his experiences as a hospital patient. The article had a significant impact, provoking a large reader response and further articles from Hanlan. During his illness he also participated in several seminars on the topic of dying. Hanlan continued writing about living with ALS until his death later in 1973. His book, "Autobiography of Dying," was published posthumously in 1979.

Mary Hanlan was born in 1928. She graduated in 1950 from the University of California, Berkeley, and in 1966 received her M.S.W. from the same school. Her career focused on family therapy and child welfare. She obtained the copyright to her husband’s works after his death, and in 1978 published her own experiences in an article for the Pennsylvania Gazette, “Living With a Dying Husband.” Mary Hanlan has authored several papers on thanatology and women in social work. She has also been very involved in various community mental health organizations in the Philadelphia area, including the Philadelphia Coalition of Community Mental Health and Mental Retardation Centers, Intercommunity Action, and the West Philadelphia Community Mental Health Consortium.

Biography/History

Florence Nightingale, byname Lady with the Lamp (born May 12, 1820, Florence [Italy]—died August 13, 1910, London, England), foundational philosopher of modern nursing, statistician, and social reformer. Nightingale was put in charge of nursing British and allied soldiers in Turkey during the Crimean War. She spent many hours in the wards, and her night rounds giving personal care to the wounded established her image as the “Lady with the Lamp.” Her efforts to formalize nursing education led her to establish the first scientifically based nursing school—the Nightingale School of Nursing, at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London (opened 1860). She also was instrumental in setting up training for midwives and nurses in workhouse infirmaries. She was the first woman awarded the Order of Merit (1907). International Nurses Day, observed annually on May 12, commemorates her birth and celebrates the important role of nurses in health care.

Biography/History

Mary McMoneagle graduated from the Frankford Hospital Training School for Nurses in Frankford, PA, in 1913. She worked at the Pennsylvania State Sanatorium for Tuberculosis No. 3 in Hamburg, PA, from November 4, 1914 until December 8, 1919. After temporarily nursing at the Frankford Arsenal for four months in 1920, she received a registered nurse license in New York state in 1921. Her work situation after that time is unknown, but her records show her resignation from the Philadelphia Department of Public Welfare April 14, 1937.

Biography/History

Mary Jane Holcombe Trautman graduated from Jefferson Medical College Hospital Training School for Nurses in 1945. Her fiancé Wilbur Trautman attended the Naval Academy. She returned to nursing education at the University of Pennsylvania after 20 years as a naval wife and raising 4 children. After obtaining a BS and MS in Psychiatric Nursing, she taught at Villanova in Philadelphia and then at St. Joseph’s in Windham (Standish), Maine. After retirement she continued to be active in nursing. She attended conferences and worked with several other nurses to organize Maine’s historic nursing papers.

Mary Jane Holcombe Trautman met and became close friends with Gretta (Margaretta) Styles soon after returning to nursing. They corresponded often until Gretta’s death in 2005 and met whenever possible. She maintained a file of their correspondence and “wants to see it carefully preserved in a Nursing Archives at Penn.”

Biography/History

The Pennsylvania Nurses' Association was founded in 1903 by nurses "feeling the need of organization, legislation and registration in the state of Pennsylvania." The immediate objective was for a registration law to control education and entry into the nursing profession, but the specific orientation of regional groups and specialized nurses soon caused the association to branch out in a variety of directions. By 1919, the state association had become unwieldy, and districts were formed to better respond to the needs of individual nurses and regional interests within the state. On April 30, 1919, the Philadelphia District Number 1, along with several others, was admitted to membership.

The concerns of District 1, from its inception, revolved around the establishment of a central headquarters with an official registry of nurses. Lack of interest, however, prevented effective action until the Nurses' Official Directory was established in 1929 to facilitate employment. Shortly after, both interest and membership rose dramatically. The Philadelphia district developed into one of the most active sections, involved in legislative actions in all areas of health care, professional promotion, publicity and education, as well as in many community activities.

Scope and Contents

This small collection is primarily composed of McMoneagle's correspondence and photographs. Her correspondence mainly concerns career milestones such as resignations. The letters and postcards are accompanied by two news clippings and a few handwritten notes on medication dosages. The photographs depict her fellow students at the Franford Hospital, along with staff and patients at the Hamburg Sanatorium. There is also a folder of personal, off-duty photographs of McMoneagle.

Scope and Contents

All materials have been scanned by the donor’s daughter, Liz Trautman, and a CD containing images of all the documents is also included in the archive. All materials have been retained in the order received.

Her daughter believed that (her mother’s), “..passion for nursing and especially her recognition of the humanistic side of nursing are what drew my mother and Gretta Styles to become close friends along with others…”

MC 23.   Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia. Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia records, 1973-1986. 0.1 Linear feet (5 folders).

Historical Sketch

Freedmen's Hospital was established in 1865 as the Freedmen's Bureau for the "relief of freed men and refugees" by the War Department of the United States. This was due in part to the many freed slaves who migrated to Washington, D.C. following the Civil War. Four years after the hospital's founding, they relocated to the campus of Howard University. The School of Nursing was founded in 1894 as an eighteen-month program which was later expanded two years. In 1909, the length of study was increased to three years. In the early twentieth century, the school affiliated with a number of institutions in the Washington area in addition to Howard, such as the Gallanger Municipal Hospital and the D.C. General Hospital. The hospital phased out the school and graduated its last class in 1973. Howard University opened their baccalaureate school of nursing the following year to replace Freedmen's. Over Freedmen's 79-year period, it graduated 1,700 nurses.

The Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Clubs, based in Washington, D.C., coordinates local clubs around the country. The Freedmen's Hospital Nurses Alumni Club of Philadelphia, founded in 1966, was established to promote goodwill among its graduates, to participate in the community health and cultural and educational programs, and to support the scholarship fund of the Freedmen's (and later) the Howard University Federation.
