The doll was used by the donor to demonstrate basic nursing skills to students in the Health Care Aid Programme at Sheriden College in Oakville, ON. from 1991 to 1996; the doll was obtained from a friend of the donor's whose daughter no longer wanted it and was probably made in the 1960s; the doll was used because the usual teaching aid, a Mary-Ellen Chase doll, was not available for use in the Health Care Aid programme and because she was portable; the two gowns were made specially for the doll in order to demonstrate the skills required when giving a bed bath.
