The Grady Memorial Hospital Municipal Training School for Colored Nurses was organized in 1914 by Mrs. Ludie Andrews, who served as superintendent of the school until 1922. The Grady Hospital School of Nursing records, located in the Southern Labor Archives, provide information about the early years of the school before it was placed under the direction of the white nursing school. Both schools eventually integrated into the Grady Hospital School of Nursing.
The collection contains records related to the early years of the of the Grady Memorial Hospital Municipal Training School for Colored Nurses, but the bulk of the materials document Grady Hospital and three of its professional schools: the School of Nursing, the School of Medical Technology, and the School of Radiologic Technology. For more information about African-Americans in the field of nursing, please check out resources in the Special Collections and Archives department and in the General Collection.
