Research Facts
Bertha Harmer was born the 22nd of March, 1880 in Port Hope, Ontario, and passed away on the 14th of December, 1934, in Toronto. After having first worked as a cashier and bookkeeper, Harmer entered the Toronto General Hospital Training School for Nurses at just over the age of 30. She graduated first in her class in 1913. After graduating, she went to Teacher's College at Columbia University in New York, then taught nursing through World War I and beyond. Her "Text-book of the principles and practice of nursing" was first published in 1922, and went through many editions and translations. Her second book was also successful, and the pair established her as a leader in the field. Her health began to deteriorate in the 1920s, During the Great Depression, she began a fundraising campaign to save the School for Graduate Nurses at McGill University. Though she died in 1934, the school survived. Professionally, Harmer was motivated, ambitious, and expressive. Personally, she was reserved, preferring to live and work alone, and never married. She enjoyed books, art, and theatre.
