Research Facts
Red wool jackets (blazers) were first worn by Kingston General Hospital nursing students and graduates in 1946 during informal off-duty hours when a nursing uniform was not appropriate; these were purchased voluntarily, generally when students entered their third year of study, and it was considered to be a rite of passage; the blazers were changed to white wool with red braided trim for the 1953 class; the blazer tradition continued until circa 1970.
