New Archive Added!

Florence Nightingale: most know her as “The Lady with the Lamp.” However, historians have revealed a more complex woman who broke barriers and pushed boundaries. A social reformer, Nightingale is considered a founder of modern nursing, but her influence reaches far beyond. The Florence Nightingale Digital Archive tells the story of her life and legacy through artifacts, ephemera, letters, books and other materials and conveys a greater appreciation for the far-reaching impact she had during her lifetime and that continues today.The materials in the Digital Archive are from the extensive collection of Dr. Tony Paterniti and can be seen on exhibit in the Blagg-Huey Library starting September 2016.
