Research Facts
There were forty-two students in Class of 1932: using the class list the names that are not legible are listed here:
"Front Row - L - R - Emma Smith -- Miss Gill Miss Wilson Miss Acton Miss Armery - Miss Livine // Miss DERBYSHIRE // 2nd Row - Lori McMaster - Elsie DAVIS - Muriel Keyes - Gertrude RANSOM - Adele BENEDICT - Irene Campbell // CORDELIA HUTSON - Gladys O'Day // 3rd Row: Norma Clark - Helen Spafford - Billie Seager - Ailene Toland - Kelen Akroyd - Mahel Johnson // Geraldine Fraser - Isabelle Hendrick"
The first official graduating class of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was in 1888; the school was created in order to educate nurses as the demand for them increased, as well as providing a labour force to the hospital. When the first nurses graduated, they were given a certificate of completion, twenty five dollars, and a nursing medal. Over the years, nurses were sometimes given pins and/or rings or other memorabilia to commemorate their graduation from the school.

Research Facts
This is an Alumna reunion of the Hamilton General Hospital Training School Class of 1946. Verna Mae Sproule (1 May 1922 – 2003), the mother of the artifact donor, was a member of the graduating class; Sproule also briefly worked at Kingston General Hospital as a scrub nurse for Dr. Bingham. The donor indicates that this was likely the 50 year reunion.
The Hamilton General Hospital training school for nurses was an apprenticeship style program that began in 1890; the program was initially two years, but was expanded to a three-year program led by the head nurse and physicians; it involved formal instruction and on the job training; the Hamilton General Hospital School of Nursing discontinued in 1973 when Mohawk College took over the program.

Research Facts
The Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario, by 1935, was instrumental in developing standards for nursing education and practice. The association protected the title “registered nurse” by making it mandatory to be registered. Nurses had to graduate from nursing school and subsequently be examined again in order to become registered nurses in Ontario. Examinations for the Registered Nurse Certificate began in 1923.

Research Facts
The Cherry Ames series was published in the United States by Grosset & Dunlap between 1943 and 1968, and is comprised of twenty-seven books. Cherry Ames was a young female nurse character who solved medical mysteries in a variety of settings. The series encouraged girls to become nurses and showed that women could contribute to the war effort and the work force and be valued for their efforts outside of the home. Throughout the series, Cherry Ames receives two marriage proposals from men who she meets, but refuses to marry and remains dedicated to her work, unlike other fictional nurses of the time. The books were written by Helen Wells and Julie Campbell Tatham, each of whom wrote different volumes.
