Research Facts
Maude Prong worked at Guelph Hospital between 1927 and 1929.
Throughout the twentieth century, nurses' uniforms changed, in particular with the rising of hemlines. The nurse's uniform was generally white, and Kingston General Hospital uniforms were once known for "turkey red" hemlines. Different levels of nursing education had different uniforms, in particular different caps, as graduate nurses had black bands on their caps to indicate their level of education.

Research Facts
As of Sept. 21, 1999, appraisal value for entire 700+ item collection, not all pieces kept, is $49,206.00; Akron Ohio was considered the rubber capital of the USA during the 1940s – 1970s and was home to many rubber manufacturing plants; foley catheters have two lumen, one lumen is open at both ends, and allows urine to drain out into a collection bag, the other lumen has a valve on the outside end and connects to a balloon at the tip; the balloon is inflated with sterile saline when it lies inside the bladder, in order to stop it from slipping out.
