Research Facts
Ruth Dafoe Taylor, donor and author of personal message written in the card, was a member of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing Class of 1963.
The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was one of the first apprenticeship-based nursing training programs in Canada; began in 1886 in response to the increased focus on patient care in hospitals and the medical field; the program was meant to produce an educated and dedicated work force of nurses while also providing an affordable labour force for the hospital through on the job student training; the Ann Baillie Building, current home of the Museum of Healthcare at Kingston, originally served as a residence for the student nurses at KGH.
