Biography/History

Barbara G. Schutt, RN, DS, MSc Ed was born March 25, 1917 in Ithaca, New York, daughter of Warren and Clara Gordon Schutt. She graduated from Jefferson Medical College Hospital (now Thomas Jefferson University), Philadelphia, PA (1938), received her Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude, with distinction in psychology, Bethany College, Bethany, West Virginia (1942), and a Masters of Science in Education (major in nursing) from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA (1949).

Schutt’s professional career began as a staff nurse and instructor at Jefferson Hospital, Philadelphia, PA (1938-1939). From 1939 to 1942, while studying for a bachelor’s degree at Bethany College and upon graduation, she did college health nursing, camp nursing, private duty nursing and part-time general duty nursing. During World War II she joined the U.S. Army Nurse Corps doing service mainly in Okinawa (1944-1946). Upon discharge from the U.S. Army she joined the staff of the Pennsylvania Nurses Association assistant executive secretary (1946-1957) and executive secretary (1958-1971). Schutt’s main focus was improving nursing services, nursing education and assisting with development of economic and welfare programs for its 18,000 membership. She utilized such techniques as public relations, lobbying and collective bargaining for the advancement of nursing in Pennsylvania. She also was editor of the Pennsylvania Nurse, which received the general excellence 1952-1954 award by the  American Journal of Nursing Company.

Schutt was best known to the nursing community during her tenure as editor of the American Journal of Nursing (1958-1971) where her perceptive and forceful editorials made a lasting impression. Mr. William Scott, legal counsel for the Board of Directors of the American Journal of Nursing stated at her retirement dinner, “Barbara has combined a trenchant, incisive and powerful pen with the ability to edit and encourage the work of others. She has built a superb editorial staff. Under her the  Journal has become an influential and powerful voice for professional and organized nursing.” Following her retirement from the  American Journal of Nursing, Schutt directed the division of nursing at Mohegan Community College. She left that position in 1979 and was presented the presidential citation for her five years of service. She served in various capacities for Eastern Connecticut Health Systems Agency and Southeastern Connecticut’s Commission on Aging, and participated in Senator Lowell Weickers’ Senior Intern Program in Washington, D.C. Schutt received several honors in recognition of her service to the profession. In 1973, she was made a charter member of the American Academy of Nursing and received an honorary doctor of science degree from Bethany College. She received recognition awards from both the American Nurses Association and the Connecticut Nursing Association. The Connecticut Nursing Association established a nursing scholarship in her honor. Schutt passed away on December 26, 1986, leaving behind a distinguished nursing career and legacy.

Biography/History

Lillian S. Brunner (b. 1918), author and educator, is a native Pennsylvanian who is known nationally and internationally for her contributions to nursing practice, particularly in the area of medical surgical nursing.

She has authored or collaborated on nine books on medical and surgical nursing. These books have appeared in as many as 12 languages and many are standard textbooks in nursing schools and educational programs around the world. She is perhaps best known for Textbook of Medical and Surgical Nursing and  The Lippincott Manual of Nursing Practice, both of which have run in at least six editions.

Brunner has served actively in many professional organizations including the Pennsylvania League for Nursing, the Board of Trustees of the Presbyterian Medical Center (Philadelphia, PA), the National League of American Pen Women (Philadelphia Branch), the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing Alumni Association, and the Advisory Board of the Center for The Study of The History of Nursing (Philadelphia, PA).

Biography/History

Ruth Marilyn Deglin, nee Blitzstein, was born on January 10, 1924 and grew up in South Jersey in the town of Salem. In the early 1940s, she entered nursing school at Jewish Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (presently Albert Einstein Medical Center). During her surgical nurse training, which coincided with World War II, she worked at the Naval Hospital in Jamaica, Long Island, New York. She graduated in 1945. After her marriage in 1948, Deglin continued to nurse at many Philadelphia area hospitals and corporations. She also worked as a private duty nurse. While on-staff at Jeanes Hospital in 1968, Ruth got cancer of the thyroid. After treatment, she recovered and continued to work as a nurse until the mid-1970s, when she returned to college and received a Bachelor of Art degree from Temple University. Due to health issues at that time, she did not return to nursing. Deglin moved to California in 2001, residing near her two oldest children until her passing on February 26, 2008.

Biography/History

Theresa I. Lynch (1896-1994), R.N., Ed.D was an educator, administrator, practitioner, and author whose foresight, determination, and confidence to fight the conservative establishment enabled her to become a pioneer in the development of the nursing profession.

Lynch was born in a family of five children in Winchester, Virginia, on August 9, 1896. Her father was a lawyer and her mother a "great social and civic leader.” With objections from her parents, who believed that nursing was inappropriate for "a lady,” Lynch chose nursing as her career and earned a diploma in nursing from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania training school in 1920. Her experience in nursing combined with an earlier degree in education enabled Lynch to become director of nursing at the Willard Parker Hospital of Communicable Diseases in New York. Lynch later left Willard to become director of an innovative new program at New York University which focused on the teaching of nursing theory. After six years at NYU, Lynch was recruited by her alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, to direct its nursing program. In this capacity, Lynch completely reorganized the nursing program.

She was instrumental in the establishment of the School of Nursing as a Division of Medical Affairs in 1944. Lynch, however, was not satisfied with the arrangement. She fought the male-dominated leadership that was opposed to an independent school of nursing. Lynch won the battle. In 1950, an independent School of Nursing was founded at the University of Pennsylvania, and Lynch was immediately named its dean.

Lynch recognized the value of publications as evidenced by her textbook, Communicable Diseases Nursing, which has been translated into different languages including Japanese. She also co-authored  Poliomyelitis with Landow and Smith. The dean, who was always meticulously groomed, had a special interest in people who suffer from communicable diseases. Even in the course of preparing her textbook, she found time to travel to New York one day a week to practice at Willard Parker.

Lynch was also active in state and local branches of the American Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing. She held various titles, including one as Chair of the First Committee on Careers for the National League of Nursing, a role she handled splendidly for several years. Among her honors, she has been listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women, and received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Nurses' Alumni Association of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Lynch retired her position as Dean of the School of Nursing in 1965. Later she started a nursing school at Widener University. After her official retirement in 1972, she moved to Washington, D.C, where she stayed until she was too ill to live by herself. In 1980, she moved to Saunders House, a retirement home in suburban Philadelphia, where she remained until her death in 1994.

Scope and Contents

Most of the collections included here consist of personal papers, student lecture notes from various nursing schools, and assorted nursing memorabilia and ephemera. Of particular significance are the two letters written by Florence Nightingale (MC 44).

Scope and Contents

This collection contains Deglin’s nursing cape, as well as other nursing-related artifacts from her career. It also includes photographs of Deglin and her class at Jewish Hospital during WWII. These items are accompanied by biographical information prepared by Ruth Deglin’s daughter, Dana Deglin.

Scope and Contents

The Theresa Lynch papers consist of personal correspondence, speeches, awards, biographical sketches, and photographs. Information on the University of Pennsylvania's Nursing School, however, makes up the bulk of the collection. The institutional files include accounts of the early history of the nursing school, many written by Lynch herself, minutes, reports, information on the school's curriculum, correspondence, publications including course bulletins. The collection also include materials of the National League for Nursing and the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.

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.)

Schutt’s professional career began as a staff nurse and instructor at Jefferson Hospital, Philadelphia, PA (1938-1939). From 1939 to 1942, while studying for a bachelor’s degree at Bethany College and upon graduation, she did college health nursing, camp nursing, private duty nursing and part-time general duty nursing. During World War II she joined the U.S. Army Nurse Corps doing service mainly in Okinawa (1944-1946). Upon discharge from the U.S. Army she joined the staff of the Pennsylvania Nurses Association assistant executive secretary (1946-1957) and executive secretary (1958-1971). Schutt’s main focus was improving nursing services, nursing education and assisting with development of economic and welfare programs for its 18,000 membership. She utilized such techniques as public relations, lobbying and collective bargaining for the advancement of nursing in Pennsylvania. She also was editor of the Pennsylvania Nurse, which received the general excellence 1952-1954 award by the  American Journal of Nursing Company.

Schutt was best known to the nursing community during her tenure as editor of the American Journal of Nursing (1958-1971) where her perceptive and forceful editorials made a lasting impression. Mr. William Scott, legal counsel for the Board of Directors of the American Journal of Nursing stated at her retirement dinner, “Barbara has combined a trenchant, incisive and powerful pen with the ability to edit and encourage the work of others. She has built a superb editorial staff. Under her the  Journal has become an influential and powerful voice for professional and organized nursing.” Following her retirement from the  American Journal of Nursing, Schutt directed the division of nursing at Mohegan Community College. She left that position in 1979 and was presented the presidential citation for her five years of service. She served in various capacities for Eastern Connecticut Health Systems Agency and Southeastern Connecticut’s Commission on Aging, and participated in Senator Lowell Weickers’ Senior Intern Program in Washington, D.C. Schutt received several honors in recognition of her service to the profession.

She received recognition awards from both the American Nurses Association and the Connecticut Nursing Association. The Connecticut Nursing Association established a nursing scholarship in her honor. Schutt passed away on December 26, 1986, leaving behind a distinguished nursing career and legacy.

Biography/History

Ruth Marilyn Deglin, nee Blitzstein, was born on January 10, 1924 and grew up in South Jersey in the town of Salem. In the early 1940s, she entered nursing school at Jewish Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (presently Albert Einstein Medical Center). During her surgical nurse training, which coincided with World War II, she worked at the Naval Hospital in Jamaica, Long Island, New York. She graduated in 1945. After her marriage in 1948, Deglin continued to nurse at many Philadelphia area hospitals and corporations. She also worked as a private duty nurse. While on-staff at Jeanes Hospital in 1968, Ruth got cancer of the thyroid. After treatment, she recovered and continued to work as a nurse until the mid-1970s, when she returned to college and received a Bachelor of Art degree from Temple University. Due to health issues at that time, she did not return to nursing. Deglin moved to California in 2001, residing near her two oldest children until her passing on February 26, 2008.

Biography/History

Theresa I. Lynch (1896-1994), R.N., Ed.D was an educator, administrator, practitioner, and author whose foresight, determination, and confidence to fight the conservative establishment enabled her to become a pioneer in the development of the nursing profession.

Lynch was born in a family of five children in Winchester, Virginia, on August 9, 1896. Her father was a lawyer and her mother a "great social and civic leader.” With objections from her parents, who believed that nursing was inappropriate for "a lady,” Lynch chose nursing as her career and earned a diploma in nursing from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania training school in 1920. Her experience in nursing combined with an earlier degree in education enabled Lynch to become director of nursing at the Willard Parker Hospital of Communicable Diseases in New York. Lynch later left Willard to become director of an innovative new program at New York University which focused on the teaching of nursing theory. After six years at NYU, Lynch was recruited by her alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, to direct its nursing program. In this capacity, Lynch completely reorganized the nursing program.

She was instrumental in the establishment of the School of Nursing as a Division of Medical Affairs in 1944. Lynch, however, was not satisfied with the arrangement. She fought the male-dominated leadership that was opposed to an independent school of nursing. Lynch won the battle. In 1950, an independent School of Nursing was founded at the University of Pennsylvania, and Lynch was immediately named its dean.

Lynch recognized the value of publications as evidenced by her textbook, Communicable Diseases Nursing, which has been translated into different languages including Japanese. She also co-authored  Poliomyelitis with Landow and Smith. The dean, who was always meticulously groomed, had a special interest in people who suffer from communicable diseases. Even in the course of preparing her textbook, she found time to travel to New York one day a week to practice at Willard Parker.

Lynch was also active in state and local branches of the American Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing. She held various titles, including one as Chair of the First Committee on Careers for the National League of Nursing, a role she handled splendidly for several years. Among her honors, she has been listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women, and received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the Nurses' Alumni Association of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Lynch retired her position as Dean of the School of Nursing in 1965. Later she started a nursing school at Widener University. After her official retirement in 1972, she moved to Washington, D.C, where she stayed until she was too ill to live by herself. In 1980, she moved to Saunders House, a retirement home in suburban Philadelphia, where she remained until her death in 1994.
