Research Facts
Louise Zabriskie graduated from the New York Hospital School of Nursing in 1913. She worked as a public health nurse and as a supervisor at the New York Lying-In Hospital until 1922, when a traffic accident left her unable to walk, but not unable to work. She lectured from her hospital bed while she recovered. She recovered and returned to work despite having lost the use of her arms and legs. She was field director of the Maternity Center Association in New York City, and in 1939, she founded the Maternity Consultation Service and remained as director for 18 years. She was highly regarded for her books and lectures.
Beginning in the early 1800s, J. B. Lippincott had great success as a bookseller in Philadelphia. After a fire in 1899, the company rebuilt and found success again, and in 1960 published Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," which went on to sell over 40 million copies.
