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. Brunner graduated from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing in 1940. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education (Nursing Major) in 1945 and a Master of Science degree from Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) in 1947. Brunner also completed post Masters' coursework at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education from 1960-1963.

Brunner's professional experience consists of a variety of nursing and instructor positions at hospitals and schools of 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).

Mrs. Brunner's contributions to nursing have been recognized by several awards including Doctor of Science, Honoris Causa, University of Pennsylvania, 1985; Doctor of Science, Honoris Causa, Cedar Crest College, (Allentown, PA), 1978; Distinguished Alumnus Award, Nurses' Alumni Association, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, 1976; and 25 Years as an Outstanding Author, J.B. Lippincott Publishing Co., (Philadelphia, PA) 1975.

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

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.

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. Brunner graduated from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing in 1940. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education (Nursing Major) in 1945 and a Master of Science degree from Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) in 1947. Brunner also completed post Masters' coursework at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education from 1960-1963.

Brunner's professional experience consists of a variety of nursing and instructor positions at hospitals and schools of 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).

Mrs. Brunner's contributions to nursing have been recognized by several awards including Doctor of Science, Honoris Causa, University of Pennsylvania, 1985; Doctor of Science, Honoris Causa, Cedar Crest College, (Allentown, PA), 1978; Distinguished Alumnus Award, Nurses' Alumni Association, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, 1976; and 25 Years as an Outstanding Author, J.B. Lippincott Publishing Co., (Philadelphia, PA) 1975.

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

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.
