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."
