Research Facts
People's Books; # 155; The introduction states "the following chapters are intended for those who wish to nurse their sick relatives and friends in their own homes. They give a general outline of sick-room methods, and explain as simply as possible the easiest and best ways of applying certain rememedies, and of nursing particular diseases. The information given will not qualify the home nurse to undertake the nursing of acute cases without skilled help, but it will perhaps enable her to co-operate more effectively with a fully trained nurse and with the doctor.

Research Facts
Pauline Swain (October 1932 - December 2004) graduated from Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1955.
St. John's Gate, Clerkenwell, is the site of the former English headquarters of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem around the 1140s, a Catholic humanitarian order created to provide medical care to the sick and injured around the year 1080. Queen Elizabeth I dissolved the Order in England, but it was reinstated by Queen Victoria in its modern sense in 1888. The site was used as a coffee house and then a pub, later becoming a museum.

Research Facts
Louise Zabriskie graduated from the New York Hospital School of Nursing in 1913. She worked as a public health nurse and as a supervisor at the New York Lying-In Hospital until 1922, when a traffic accident left her unable to walk, but not unable to work. She lectured from her hospital bed while she recovered. She recovered and returned to work despite having lost the use of her arms and legs. She was field director of the Maternity Center Association in New York City, and in 1939, she founded the Maternity Consultation Service and remained as director for 18 years. She was highly regarded for her books and lectures.
Beginning in the early 1800s, J. B. Lippincott had great success as a bookseller in Philadelphia. After a fire in 1899, the company rebuilt and found success again, and in 1960 published Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," which went on to sell over 40 million copies.
