Doris Schwartz was born in New York in 1915, the daughter of Florence Marie (nee Shuttleworth) and Henry Schwartz. She graduated from Methodist School of Nursing, Brooklyn, New York in 1942. Schwartz obtained her Bachelor of Science degree (1953) and Master of Arts (1958) degree with majors in public health nursing from New York University's School of Education. As part of her educational field experience requirement, she became the first American exchange nurse in public health in rural Sweden. Her contributions to nursing literature include landmark research, curricular innovations, and a strong philosophical framework for community health and gerontologic nursing.

Following her graduation from nursing school, Schwartz worked for the Brooklyn Visiting Nurse Association in the Red Hook district until she entered the U.S. Army Nurse Corps (1943) where she served four and a half years, including an eight-month assignment on the Marigold, an Army hospital ship in the Pacific. After discharge from the Army in 1947 she returned to the Brooklyn Visiting Nurse Association, resigning in 1951 to take a position with Cornell University School of Nursing and a joint appointment at the Cornell Medical College.

Schwartz served at Cornell for twenty-nine years as clinical instructor, coordinator for nursing in the Comprehensive Care and Teaching Program, researcher in Ambulatory Care, and consultant to the Cornell Medical College Navajo Field Health Program. She was appointed associate professor of nursing for community health (1963) and co-director for the Family Nurse Practitioner (1972) and the Geriatric Nurse Practitioner programs (1977). Between 1955-1993 she wrote numerous scholarly articles, papers and books, especially in the field of gerontology, and firmly established her reputation as one who recognized nursing problems of patients and enjoyed describing and investigating them.

In 1980, following a stroke, Schwartz retired from Cornell University and relocated to Foulkeways in Gwynedd, Pennsylvania, and became associated with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing as a Senior Fellow with the Gerontology Nursing Program. Throughout her career Schwartz actively served in many professional nursing associations, professional organizations, and received honors and awards for her contributions to the health care field. Her book, Give Us to Go Blithely, recounts her fifty years in nursing.

Scope and Contents

This collection spans Schwartz's professional life documenting her nursing experience and association with the Cornell University School of Nursing. Her earlier experiences are recounted in a series of taped interviews (both audio and video). The collection includes training and research development reports and grants and published and unpublished manuscripts. The collection includes a compilation from Schwartz's diary and her recollections from her fifty years in nursing.

Related Archival Materials note

Audiotapes of interviews with Doris Schwartz by Susan Reverby, 4 audiocassettes, 1982.

Box Tape

Family history which includes grandparents and parents; relationship with mother and brother; the Great Depression of the 1930s and its effects on family life; school years; summer camping from age 10 to 16; working years as a sales girl and taking evening college courses; and selecting a school of nursing to pursue a nursing career.

14 1

Schwartz's experience following being discharged from the Army and prior experience with the Rehabilitation Army Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan just before discharge; obtaining a college degree and working part-time for the American Journal of Nursing with editor Mary Roberts; and working with the Brooklyn Visiting Nurse Association's "The Red Hook Project.".

Scope and Contents note

These tapes highlight Schwartz's career as a nurse. On the first tape she relates her Army nursing experiences during World War II. She tells why she enlisted in the army, and then details the three different phases of her stay in the army-- first as head nurse of a forty-five bed amputee ward at Mitchell Field Hospital in Long Island, New York, which was a temporary hospital for soldiers returning from the war in Europe; when she was stationed on the Marigold, an army hospital ship that sailed the Pacific Ocean; and after the war as head nurse for eighteen months at Percy Jones Military Hospital in Battle Creek, Michigan, a 2000-bed rehabilitative facility for veterans of the war. During the first two interviews, Schwartz describes the everyday occurrences in hospitals during the war and the training she received in order to work at each place. For the third period, Schwartz relates the history of rehabilitative hospitals and the effects that this interview had on her later career.

Schwartz comments on the effects that the army nurses had on civilian nursing and describes trends such as the increasing specialization of the nursing profession along with the creation of new jobs (such as nurse clinicians) after World War II. Also discussed is the growing independence of nursing during this time period and criticism of this change.

In the remainder of the tapes, Schwartz narrates events in her life after the army such as working for the American Journal of Nursing under Mary Roberts while finishing her nursing studies at New York University. She describes being a part of the pioneering program that combined the Visiting Nurse Association of Brooklyn at Red Hook with the New York City Health Department's program in 1946-1947. She mentions receiving a Rockefeller Fellowship for a program at the University of Toronto that trained future leaders in nursing from around the world, and being the staff nurse for the ten-year Comprehensive Care and Teaching Program at Cornell University's Medical School, which trained medical students to become generalists instead of specialists. Schwartz discusses the innovative aspects of the program, its influences, and why it existed and eventually disappeared. Schwartz also describes her gerontology study of 1961 which was one of the first research projects done by a nurse on the effects of aging.

These tapes detail visiting nurse societies and public health nursing and how they evolved during the 1960s and 1970s. Among changes mentioned are the proprietarization of home care, the intervention of the government through Medicare, and the increasing administrative atmosphere of the visiting nurse societies.
