Research Facts
Donor received this cap during nurse's training at Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1971. Local jeweler and diamond merchant, Kinnear d'Esterre created custom jewellery.
The first official graduating class of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was in 1888; the school was created in order to educate nurses as the demand for them increased, as well as providing a labour force to the hospital. When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal. Over the years, nurses were sometimes given pins and/or rings or other memorabilia to commemorate their graduation from the school.
