Ann Baillie was a truly wonderful // person, dearly loved by all the students and we were very fortunate to have // her as our Superintendent of Nurses. // We were also very fortunate to be in the School of Nursing at K. G. H. // when there was so many changes for the improvement and better conditions // in the hospital and School of Nursing. // We were the first class of 1928 to occupy the New Nurse's Residence and // to have a Class Room of which we were very proud. We watched with excitement // and interest of the erection of the Ann Baillie Residence. Of cours, there // was the noise, dust which we endured when we were on night duty. // Our class were not all together, we were separated some at George Street // Residence. We were moved from one location to another, Doran, Watkins, and // finally to Nickle. Well I remember those stairs at Watkins to the 3rd floor. // There were about 35 students in our class, through the discomfort of many // changes, we were young, cheerful, happy and we built up comradship (sp). We helped // one another and worked hard from 7 AM to 7 PM with 2 hours off if your work was // completed. As a Probie we were off duty at 4:30 PM. // To begin our day, every morning before 7AM we assembled in the long // corridor between Douglas and Empire. There was a great deal of noisy chattereing // between us. Then precisely at 7AM someone would say "Here she comes" and all at // once we would form a straight line at attention. There was complete silence // and we would all say Good Morning Miss Baillie. We had prayers and given // the assignemtns of the day before going on duty. // Then came moving day to the new residence. We previously asked Miss Baillie // if we could have our closest friends rooms near one another and the request was // granted. // At the Ann Baillie Residence we had a beautiful sun room, very spacious, // bright, cheerful, painted a soft green. It was restful and relaxing. The // bookcases were empty, but it wasn't long until they were filled by generous // people. I think Mrs. Etherington had something to do with donating the books. // There was a piano and we were very fortunate to have a very talented nurse // who gave freely of her time to play for us such selections as Canadian Cappers // and to play for sing songs, etc. // There was a lounge room and the Class Room. The Class Room was very well // equiped (sp) with a hosptial bed. After instructing us in bed making, Miss Acton // our nursing instructor and well I can remember - asked me to come up and make up // the bed before all the class. I just about dropped thru the floor. A great // deal of emphasis was put on how to make a bed properly and Mitre the corners // just so. // We were taught by the Doctors, W.T. Connell, McGegor, MacCullum, Austin, Bogart, // Gibson, Ehterington, Matheson, J. C. Connell and other Doctors who gave their time."; handwritten: "In conclusion those of us who resided at the Anne Baille // had many memories, of this Anne Baillie Residence of over 60 yrs."

Research Facts
Christopher D. Sclavenitis (in its Greek form, Christophoro D. Sklavenitis) was a sculptor and ceramist in Greece in the 20th century, a member of the Hellenic Chamber of Arts. He created many statues and artistic pieces, including a chess set. He was a student of Modigliani, and made many statues depicting Greek gods and goddesses. Some of his work was featured on the television show Battlestar Galactica.
Aesculapius, or his original Greek name Asklepios, was the Greco-Roman god of medicine, son of Apollo and Princess Coronis. Aesculapius' children include Hygeia, goddess of health, and Panaceia, goddess of healing. Aesculapius was raised and trained in healing by Chiron the centaur. Aesculapius became a powerful and influential healer, eventually becoming able to raise the dead. This angered Zeus, who killed him with a thunderbolt. Influential and important figures in medicine referred to Aesculapius, such as Hippocrates in the first line of the Hippocratic Oath: "I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract", and Galen, who was healed in an Aesculapian temple. The snake colied around a staff which he carries is a symbol of medicine to this day, commonly mistaken for a caduceus, which is the wand of Hermes and also used as a medical symbol.
